“What do you do in that building out on Adam’s Dairy Parkway?”
This question is not unusual when someone notices a Durvet logo on my shirt when I’m out and about in Blue Springs.
With 43 employees nationwide and only a few that actually live in Blue Springs, it’s not unusual to have them say “I don’t know anyone that works there.”
Durvet was founded in 1970 by a group of animal health distributors as a way to consolidate their purchasing power.
Over the years the company has changed and grown into the largest sales and marketing organization in the animal health industry owned 100% by independent distribution.
Durvet provides member/owners with a broad line of private-labeled products, national branded products and marketing/sales expertise to support their needs.
So here we are, 46 years later, virtually “plowing” forward into the new digital age as we launch the Durvet blog.
Our team was reluctantly “excited” when they heard we were going to do this…it’s not always easy to step out of your comfort zone and try something new. But we’re doing it together, as we do everything at Durvet…as a team.
We plan to have fun and share stories with you about our people, our customers, their families, our products and anything else that might be of interest to those we touch in our careers and lives.
We hope you find it useful and a way for you to get to better know us. If you have any ideas or topics you’d like us to consider for our blog, leave a comment here or drop us an email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Thanks for joining us on this journey. We’re all going to learn a lot…together.
