GEMCORE, a Family of Companies, Receives Weatherhead 100 Centurion Award Again for Driving Leadership, Growth, and Success in Northeast Ohio

Hudson, OHIO – December 9, 2021 – GEMCORE™, a family of companies, has been named a Weatherhead 100 Centurion and a Weatherhead 100 company for a second time by Case Western Reserve University’s Weatherhead School of Management.

An industry leader in diabetes management solutions, GEMCORE provides mail-order diabetes supplies, medications, health and wellness coaching, as well as wholesale distribution and third-party logistics services tailored to the clients it serves. Its subsidiaries include Edwards Health Care Services, GEMCO Medical, GemCare Wellness, and GEM Edwards Pharmacy.

The Weatherhead 100 awards program recognizes fast-growing companies in Northeast Ohio that are the best examples of leadership, growth, and success in the region. Winners are chosen based on percent of revenue growth over the past five years, with the Centurion award recognizing a select group of the region’s top revenue-generating companies.

“It’s truly an honor to be among the Weatherhead 100 award winners—and even more remarkable to receive a Weatherhead Centurion award again,” said Matthew Edwards, GEMCORE’s CEO. “I truly believe our success stems from our employees’ passion for helping people with chronic conditions live better and healthier lives. Our personalized, customer-focused approach enables us to pivot and evolve to meet the ever-changing needs of those we serve. We are thrilled to accept this award once again and look forward to what the future holds!”

Founded in 1992 as a mail-order supply company out of the Edwards family home, GEMCORE has since grown to more than 375 employees at its main headquarters in Hudson, Ohio, and across seven branch locations throughout the U.S. In 2020, the company embarked on its third major facilities expansion with an additional 50,000 square feet to its state-of-the-art distribution center to support the growth it’s experiencing from the 3PL fulfillment service it launched in 2018.

The Weatherhead recognition joins a growing list of recent accolades for the company, including the 2021 Cleveland Plain Dealer Top Workplace and the 2021 Inc. 5000 Fastest-Growing Companies list.
