PQ's story starts like so many tales of entrepreneurial adventure do – as a spark of a dream, an idea on a napkin. In the very early days, PQ was one man working from his garage, filling bottles of suntan lotion one-by-one for a local company. That man knew something his competitors didn't: determination breeds success. Soon, one order became five, then five turned to 10 and so on.
More than 15 years later, PQ is a multi-million dollar operation with two locations capable of producing more than 120 million units a year. We're a fully licensed over-the-counter (OTC) drug manufacturer with over 200 employees and count all of the top drug store chains as customers.
And that man? His name is John Regan
, our CEO, and he still drives every aspect of the business with the same determination he did all those years ago.
