Foremost - McKesson, Inc. ( Now McKesson Corporation )
Beautifully engraved certificate from the Foremost - McKesson, Inc.
in 1967. This historic document was printed by the Security - Columbian Banknote Company and has an
ornate border around it with a vignette of an allegorical man with a globe in the background. This item has the printed signatures of the Company’s President and Secretary and is
over 37 years old.
In 1967, Foremost, a nationwide dairy distributor, and McKesson & Robbins merged to become Foremost-McKesson. The company became the largest U.S. distributor of drugs, alcoholic beverages and chemicals. It is the nation's largest supplier of milk-based products and is the largest producer of processed water in the western half of the U.S.
Throughout the 1980s, Foremost-McKesson divested most of its peripheral businesses and began the process of refocusing on its core healthcare supply management businesses and investing in developing new technologies. In 1984, McKesson Corporation became the new name of the company. During the same period, HBOC began increasing and expanding its product lines through heavy investment in R&D and strategic acquisitions.
McKesson Corporation today is the world's leading supply management and healthcare information technology company. Service and innovation have been the hallmarks of our success since we started our business as a wholesale distributor specializing in health-related products in 1833.
