When Durvet opened for business in 1970, its doors were literally attached to a van carrying its animal health care products warehoused in a tiny 500 square foot rented facility. Durvet was the first entity in the OTC animal health market to be involved with both manufacturing and distribution, and this vision proved to be the model for the animal health supply chain business. Its original 13 distributor/owners had combined annual sales of $20 million. But from those modest beginnings, Durvet itself has grown to over $169 million in sales, while each year its 21 independent distributor shareholders sell in excess of $1 billion of animal health and agriculture products.
Over the years, Durvet has diversified its inventory with equine care and pet health lines. After tripling sales between 1994 and 2004, it expanded its facilities in Blue Springs, Missouri, and currently operates from a 78,000 square foot warehouse with state-of-the-art logistics and distribution technology. The Durvet organization employs 41 people at its Blue Springs headquarters and supports 50+ member distribution points with nearly 700 sales professionals strategically located around the country to meet the needs of livestock, equine and pet owners – offering them the product performance and affordability they demand.
