Turenne PharMedCo Breaks Ground In Montgomery Industrial Park

| Montgomery, AL— February 15, 2008 | 

At 10:00 a.m. on February 27, 2008, Turenne PharMedCo broke ground on a new 100,000 square foot building on 13+ acres in the new Montgomery Industrial Park located in east Montgomery.  The new state-of-the-art facility will serve as headquarters to PharMedCo’s entire operation.  It will also house the corporate offices of Turenne & Associates, LLC, the parent company of Turenne PharMedCo.

Turenne PharMedCo is a full-line medical supply distributor, institutional pharmacy, and medicare billing agency serving the long-term care industry in Alabama and throughout the southeastern United States.  In business since 1992, the three distinct divisions came together as one company in 1998.  A wholly-owned subsidiary of Turenne & Associates, LLC, PharMedCo has grown from a 5-person operation running out of a single office suite in Montgomery’s Gunter Industrial Park, to one of the four largest private sector institutional pharmacies in the state of Alabama, with over 100 employees.

Turenne & Associates, LLC, a healthcare management company owned and operated by Roger Turenne, has been managing long term care facilities and related service companies in Alabama and throughout the Southeast since 1986.  In addition to PharMedCo, Turenne & Associates owns and operates three long term care/rehabilitation facilities in Alabama: Capitol Hill Healthcare Center in Montgomery, McGuffey Healthcare Center in Gadsden, and Westside Terrace Healthcare Center in Dothan.  They also own Rehab First, an aggressive provider of rehabilitative acute care with facilities in each of these locations. 

The new facilities will boast vastly increased production space with streamlined communications, inventory management, and pharmacy production systems, opening the door for rapid growth over the coming years.  “We’re very excited,” said Craig Miller, Vice President of Operations.  “This is a huge step that has been a long time coming.  The opportunities for our future and the futures of our employees and their families and the thousands of people we serve, are wide open. ”

The park’s developer, Industrial Partners, LLC, will oversee the multi-million dollar project.  Industrial Partners, LLC, is a leading developer in the state of Alabama, with over 30 years of experience in building, managing, and maintaining industrial facilities and parks.  The company was formed in 1974 as a collaboration between Nimrod T. Frazer, Sr. and The Pattillo Construction Corporation, an internationally recognized and respected construction company specializing in industrial buildings.?
