Louisiana Wholesale Drug Company was founded in 1979 when a group of Louisiana independent pharmacists recognized the need to form a company that could consolidate purchasing and maximize pricing. The new venture offered wholesaler equity, thereby enhancing the representation and control of it’s shareholders in the marketplace.
In the past 38 years LWD has grown from 51 pharmacists to 178 stockholders serving over 275 stores and is one of the top three privately held companies in southwest Louisiana. The physical facility reached capacity at 40,000 square feet in 2001. Today an additional 26,144 square feet has been added, fueling our ability to expand outside Louisiana.
