Sep 20, 2012

BROOKLYN (September 20, 2012) – Reaffirming their commitment to supporting local businesses, Barclays Center and the Brooklyn Nets have formed an alliance with Brooklyn-based TGI Office Automation, one of the nation’s most reputable office solutions provider.

TGI will provide Barclays Center and the Brooklyn Nets with office equipment, including copiers, printers and fax machines. Factory trained service technicians and certified network engineers will be available to provide dedicated around the clock customer service.

Environmental sustainability is important to Barclays Center, the Brooklyn Nets and TGI Office Automation. As part of their commitment to the environment, TGI will hold an event during a Brooklyn Nets game to collect empty printer cartridges which will then be recycled in order to keep them out of landfills.

“We were thrilled when the opportunity to partner with Barclays Center and the Brooklyn Nets presented itself,” said TGI CEO Frank Grasso. “This partnership gives us the opportunity to connect with the people of Brooklyn in ways we wouldn’t otherwise be able to and provides us with an international stage to showcase what Brooklyn businesses are really all about.”
In addition to the recycling program, TGI will provide other ecological solutions, including dramatically reducing paper use, introducing energy star-compliant equipment, and installing software tools to achieve and measure carbon footprint.

“Barclays Center and the Brooklyn Nets are proud to align with TGI Office Automation, a Brooklyn-based business,” said Barclays Center and Brooklyn Nets CEO Brett Yormark. “During its inaugural year, Barclays Center will host more than 200 events, making it essential for our offices to operate efficiently. We are proceeding confidently knowing that we have the support of TGI Office Automation.”
