Cincinnati — Cintas Corporation, a leader in fire protection services, has been named “Vendor of the Year” by the Store Planning team at Limited Brands, a Columbus, Ohio-based retailer with stores including Victoria’s Secret, Bath and Body Works, Pink and Henri Bendel. Cintas provides fire extinguisher and panic door hardware inspection and repair in 2,600 Limited Brands stores nationwide through its DunnWell division.
“Limited Brands takes fire protection very seriously, and we strive to provide them with the superior customer service, follow-up and support all of our customers expect from us,” says John Rossmiller, director, Cintas Fire Protection, national accounts. “This award is a testament to the hard work and dedication of the 60-plus Cintas professionals who help service this account every day. We are thrilled and honored to receive this award.”
The National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) estimates that approximately 18,500 fires occur every year in stores and offices throughout the U.S., costing an average of $625 million in damage. Cintas’ fire extinguisher inspection and repair service guarantees that equipment is always accessible, functioning, charged and ready for use. Its panic door hardware inspection ensures that emergency exits are always in working order in case of an emergency. Cintas also provides sprinkler, backflow and alarm services when requested. Cintas was awarded the contract last year through a competitive bid.
“We enjoy helping Limited Brands maintain compliance with fire safety regulations and ensuring a safe environment for their customers and employees,” says Rossmiller. “It’s a great partnership that we look forward to continuing.”
