Starting his career as a systems administrator at a large workers' compensation healthcare group, Davin quickly recognized opportunities in the pharmaceutical supply chain to better serve healthcare providers. Davin Deb launched an FDA repackaging facility to provide pre-packed unit dose medication to hospitals and clinics, and expanded operations to include manufacturing OTC products as an FDA private label distributor. In 2014, Davin—President and CEO—founded Dsquared Pharmaceuticals–a national manufacturing and wholesale distributor for FDA private labelers and continues to expand his distribution network. Dsquared Pharmaceuticals is dedicated to providing an exceptional customer experience including the ability to identify an underserved demographic in the patient population, and meet the demands for niche products.

When Dsquared Pharmaceuticals opened in Glendale, CA, it outgrew the space within a year and opened a second larger distribution center in Phoenix, AZ, that could accommodate its rapid growth. Today, Dsquared Pharmaceuticals’ expanding footprint includes majority of the U.S. and Puerto Rico, enabling the distributor to partner with large chain drug stores and major distributors as well as providing services to mid-tier distributors and independent pharmacies. Owing to the reason of Dsquared Pharmaceuticals’ large service area, it is essential that software solutions meet regulatory demands. Dsquared Pharmaceuticals utilizes Tracelink cloud network for their Product Track and Trace (DSCSA Compliance) which integrates with their SAP for the existing ERP. Part of Dsquared Pharmaceuticals’ success is attributed to employee loyalty and the culture that is fostered through independent projects and opportunities for professional development.
The steadfast leader, Davin appreciates a robust social life and dedicates his time to strengthening his personal and professional network, which he maintains through loyalty and sincerity. These same qualities enables Davin to connect with customers and provide them with the security and transparency needed to build enduring partnerships. Dsquared Pharmaceutical believes customer service is key, so any innovative product development is intended to also maximize customer profits. Dsquared Pharmaceuticals’ central location in AZ, and multiple distribution centers means a quicker turn around for customers. Larger distributors tend to overlook customer care, enforcing inequitable contractual obligations
According to Davin, technology is bringing unprecedented changes to the pharma industry and companies that are able to quickly adapt are gaining an edge and in a profitable position, however, these organization need to keep in mind that with change comes new compliance challenges. “Be flexible yet vigilant,” says Davin. Dsquared Pharmaceutical continues to expand list of products, currently preparing to launch an approved combination of NSAID and H2 blocker, and a novel dosage form of metformin. These products will serve an underrepresented patient population and will be easily available in the near future for utilization.
