About Progressive Labs
Three Decades of Commitment
A family owned and operated business since 1972; Progressive Laboratories has been providing the finest quality products available for targeted nutrition in therapeutic potencies. Serving an ever-increasing community of discerning consumers, Progressive has continued to grow through referrals from satisfied doctors and their patients. Today Progressive Labs' reach has expanded to over 25,000 customers.
The Progressive name has become synonymous with dependability, having earned a well-deserved reputation for reliable results and high standards of product performance. This level of trustworthiness and commitment to excellence is reflected throughout Progressive Labs' extensive product line. Progressive Laboratories produces over 250 proprietary products in-house, all representing their fundamental core philosophy that Nature works in synergy and that ingredients should reflect optimal co-nutrients and catalysts for maximum benefit.
Progressive Laboratories also distributes a select group of top brands whose formulas have demonstrated the ability to meet the same high standards they hold themselves to.
Good Manufacturing Practices (GMP) Compliant
Progressive Laboratories is registered with the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and licensed by the Texas Department of Health. Subject to regular and rigorous inspections by regulatory agencies, Progressive Labs meets or exceeds all federal and state regulations for GMP's (Good Manufacturing Practices), sanitation and Quality Assurance. Progressive Labs subjects all in-coming raw materials, and all finished goods to strict quality and potency testing to assure the highest grade product reaches the hands of our customers. This level of effort is in excess of the requirements of the FDA GMPs. Progressive Labs also contracts independent regulatory compliance audits, and have many of their finished goods independently tested by outside laboratories. Again, this is in excess of FDA requirements. Progressive Labs takes pride in their quality and continues to improve their practices and procedures in a continuing effort to maintain the highest quality products available that are second-to-none.
State-Of-The-Art Manufacturing Facilities
Progressive Labs' manufacturing facilities in the Las Colinas subdivision of Irving, Texas are set within one of the country's premier high-tech industrial developments in suburban Dallas. Progressive Labs' two facilities offer almost 80,000 square feet of manufacturing/warehousing space allowing them to best utilize their state-of-the-art, high speed mixing, encapsulation, tabletting and powder filling lines. Progressive Labs continues to expand their services by offering new and unique packaging options.
Progressive Laboratories is not content to sit on their past successes and maintain a stagnant product line. Progressive Labs keeps abreast of the latest clinical research as it applies to new product development and product enhancement. They continually work with raw material suppliers to develop and evaluate new raw materials and new and more efficient delivery technologies that can either enhance an existing product, or allow them to offer a new, more efficient solution to a health need. Progressive Labs remains on the cutting edge and responsive to new developments. Progressive Labs continues to advance by incorporating the newest scientific discoveries, together with the proven remedies of past generations and natural healers.
Efficient Support Team
A basic Progressive principle is putting their customers first. Progressive's customer-oriented staff is experienced, knowledgeable and courteous in handling orders, calls and questions. Warmth, respect and efficiency are the hallmarks of their customer relations. Progressive also offers the technical support of their in-house Naturopathic Doctor. Although the industry changes over the years, the people who make up the heart and soul of Progressive Labs remain constant in their dedication to producing the finest nutritional products under the strictest guideline.
Potency and Results.
And The Survey Says…
Self-assessment is the mark of a company motivated for self-improvement and with results-oriented goals. Progressive Labs continues to seek customer input and ideas on ways to improve their products and service through customer surveys and focus groups.
In a customer evaluation conducted in 2003, Progressive scored above our competition by 25% for results, 27% for price and 20% for potency - the top 3 areas ranked respectively for importance by doctors. Overall, 95% of respondents ranked our service, delivery and ordering procedures better and more efficient, and 84% said account representatives handled orders with professionalism, courtesy and expediency.
Although the numbers show impressive outcomes, Progressive Labs never stops striving for improvement.
