Our Story

AVKare was incorporated in the state of Tennessee in 2007, AvKARE has become a leader in the Generic Pharmaceutical Industry, with over 600 products currently available in the AvKARE and AvPAK labels.

Troy Mizell, an Army Veteran and business executive with over fourteen years prior experience, joined with Steve Shirley, a Pharmacist and visionary, to begin AvKARE in March of 2007. In its infancy, the company focused on its goal of receiving a Federal Supply Schedule contract, and found success in 2008 when it was awarded an FSS Medical/Surgical contract by the US Department of Veterans Affairs. Later, in 2009, AvKARE was also awarded an FSS Pharmaceutical contract, and multiple National Contracts, which was integral to the future success of the company.

In the interim, having developed relationships with several key Wholesalers allowed AvKARE to launch its Generic Pharmaceutical Products successfully into the government purchasing arena. Subsequently, AvKARE has also become affiliated with a number of Group Purchasing Organizations, and its product line has emerged into a new market, finding its way to commercial hospitals and pharmacies across the nation.

AvKARE is a family oriented organization and believes wholeheartedly that its people drive the success of the company. With these beliefs ever in mind, and with eyes focused always on the goal, AvKARE has grown into the thriving company it is today.
