I gather from that link that you are not working in an accredited lab. So ordering pure cultures from accredited labs is impossible.

They give here the recipe for the medium to propagate the bacteria you are interested in:
http://www.atcc.org/ATCCAdvancedCatalog ... e=bacteria

There is a link to the paper where they isolated it (J. bacteriol 1972) should be available for free online. You can look up the protocol.

Hmmmm...
I just gave you the journal (journal of bacteriology) and the year (1972), letting you retrieving the full reference from the webpage linked. Basic database searching abilities might be a helpful skill to develop.
Pubmed, Agricola and Google scholar are your friends.
You will find J. bact at jb.asm.org to start the search for your PDF
