EPS is a product of the industry; none of our competitors can make that claim. Having been born from within the heart of long-term care, EPS is intimately aware of the issues facing the industry. EPS’s only reason to exist is to serve the industry that created it.
In the accomplishment of our mission and purpose, EPS’s strategy is focused on providing innovative products, applications, and services that drive productivity improvements. We do so by developing value-added applications and solutions to foster continued market development and expansion.
EPS offers product training through our manufacturers for all of our product lines. Facility in-services, website training, storage room set up and par level management are available to each of our facilities.
EPS staff is available to aid in product selection and offer alternatives. Our staff is familiar with each customer’s ordering patterns and product selections which enhances order accuracy and eliminates unnecessary freight costs.
Orders can be placed by phone, fax, email, at epsmn.com, or by a sales representative.

During routine visits sales representatives are available to deliver products and pick up returns eliminating unnecessary shipping costs.
