Rudy LaVecchia President & CEO
In 2000, after becoming tired of climbing the corporate ladder at Anda Pharmaceuticals, I decided to go out on my own and found ParagonMeds.
I started with no employees and by 2003 the team of one had grown to five. Slowly and steadily, by focusing on doing the right things, and doing the right things right I continued to grow our product offerings and our value to our clients.
By 2010 we had grown to 10 employees.
The pride I felt as I watched "my" company become "our" company was immense.
We had a breakthrough year in 2012. We opened about a dozen manufactures, Actavis included.
That same year, to help scale our business, we invested in a website redesign to support a fully online ordering system that makes ordering and reordering fast and convenient for our customers.
Today the healthcare practices, pharmacies, hospitals, clinics, occupational industrial healthcare professionals, long-term-care facilities and other specialty practice communities that work with us have access to over 40,000 branded and generic meds and medical supplies.
In 2014 we opened a warehouse in Memphis, Tenessee. This was a strategic play to carry our inventory closer to FedEx's shipping hub; allowing for product to be picked and shipped the same day our customers order.
We soon expanded our license from just Florida, to all 50 states of this great country. And soon thereafter secured our repackaging license and approval to repackage antibiotics.
This year we tripled our sales force across the country to accommodate our expanding customer base and service catalog.
We've also expanded into the LTC and specialty pharmacy markets this year.
Of course, there is plenty more in the pipeline and we are excited to deliver it.
With our manufacturing license, we'll be coming out with our own line of Anda products in the 4th quarter of 2017.
Leading the expansion of our full service unit dose and repackaging division.
And launching our mobile app Q1 2017. It will empower customers to scan product and directly order from their mobile phone. Whether they're in their store, in their warehouse or in transit!
Finally, I want to mention this is a family business. I work side by side with my son and daughter every day. I get the distinct pleasure of challenging them, and watching them grow to meet those challenges.
