OUR VISION
At our very core, we are a health and wellness-focused company built to help people lead healthier lives. Our strength and experience in topical OTC and Rx development helps our customers succeed in bringing life-changing products to market – and our company’s trajectory indicates we’re well on our way to becoming a global leader in this space.
OUR HISTORY
Product Quest’s history is a true entrepreneurial story, with one industrious individual making products in a central Florida garage in 1996. A slow-motion transformation took place in those first few years. A talented team, with technical expertise and tenacity, joined the fledgling enterprise. Then, innovative R&D compounded the manufacturing advancements. The growth escalated.

The 2013 acquisition of Ei, a pharmaceutical solutionsworks in Charlotte, NC brought Product Quest to new heights. The business evolved and became smarter, quicker and more proficient. The expanded technical expertise and manufacturing capacity facilitated extraordinary growth.

And we are not done yet. We continue on our quest to be the leading topical OTC/Rx developer in the health and wellness industry.
QUALITY
Quality is not a goal to be achieved or a score on a report — it’s a way of operating. It’s evident in our state-of-the-art facilities and strength in both regulatory and customer audit performances. It’s delivered through our corporate integrity and higher-than-industry standards, which result in exceeding our customers’ expectations every single day.
SAFETY
The safety of our associates is never compromised. Each individual is trained and tested in safety standards and emergency protocol relevant to their departmental activities. This training coupled with a clean, healthy environment generates impressive, year-to-year records audited often by retail and contract customers. We are proud of our high standards and welcome you and your assessment team to tour any of our facilities.
OUR COMMITMENT
Highest quality service to our clients – large and small – is our commitment. Achieving the customer’s goals with integrity, tenacity and innovation is the foundation of Product Quest Manufacturing.
