How it works

The cooperative enters into contracts, on behalf of its members, for most materials purchased by its members. These may be for an agreed period of time and/or agreed quantities. Prior to contract expiration ABECS negotiates with the incumbent and other interested parties to gain the best possible pricing together with the expected high levels of quality and service.
