Why Our Customers Choose Us

Sourcing Expertise

We leverage decades of industry insight and deep relationships with manufacturers to source quality products and secure inventory for future needs.

Solution Based

We strengthen weak links in the healthcare products supply chain with innovative solutions that allow us to guarantee planned inventory for clients.

Second Generation

Our company is built on a foundation of family values with integrity at the core of everything we do.

Regional Service

With dedicated warehouses in Chicago, our quick delivery (often same-day or next-day) extends citywide, as well as across the Midwest and U.S.

Integrity is at the core of everything we do.

In 1978, my family’s operations began with a single desk and a storage space under an apartment staircase in Chicago to serve a handful of clients. My father, Howard Medical founder Ross Litton, had the tenacity and vision then that paved the way for our current operations. In 2016, I became CEO and continued to forge a new path forward while retaining the family values my father built the business on.

At the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic, we expanded our capabilities to serve industries beyond the Midwest. We meet the needs of clients across the U.S. as their medical supply store to deliver in-demand medical supplies at the right time so they can provide patients and customers with the attention and care they need.

We’ve grown from a small family company to a national supplier. What hasn’t changed is our dedication to superior service and uncompromising values. Our vision is to help redefine our customers’ perceptions of supply chain management and distribution services as a collaborative approach to improve patient care in the U.S.

I look forward to supporting your supply needs.

Mark Litton, CEO
