Aeroflow 2018 year in review

Aeroflow 2018 Year In Review, Our Best Year Yet!

Our theme for 2018 was “Our Best Year Yet” and we’re proud to say that we exceeded our goals in making it easier than ever before for patients to receive their medical equipment and supplies, reaching record sales, increasing employee satisfaction, and focusing on community involvement with philanthropy.

2018 really stands out as a year to showcase the importance of our three C’s with a dedicated commitment to Customers, Coworkers, and Community. By focusing on employee engagement and development we’ve been continuously experiencing an exceptional drive to provide better patient care, give more back to the community we love being a part of, and substantial growth.

2018 In Review

Record-Breaking Growth

With the addition of our new site for Aeroflow Urology and the official launch of the Aeroflow Breastpumps Lactation Support directory help us experience a 30% growth in revenue.

While we originally had the goal of becoming a multimillion dollar company in five years, we actually were able to do so in four.

A major portion of growth can also be attributed to our mergers and acquisitions. By acquiring individual lines of business along with entire operations, those businesses were able to either refocus their goals or exit the industry. We were also able to provide immediate care for their patients to ensure they didn’t go a single day without their medical supplies. A few of our major acquisitions include:

An Increase In Employee Satisfaction

Our team is the true key to success. It’s the people on the phones, in the warehouse, checking on patients, leading new innovative ideas, and more that make us successful. Therefore we’ve taken the time to give back with events such as:

  • Our annual community garden
  • Easter egg hunt for families to enjoy
  • Cookouts where the proceeds go to charity
  • Clear recognition, awards, acknowledgment, and peer to peer awards   
  • Halloween costume contest

We also support our staff and encourage them to go after their dreams. A few promotions and new hires we’re proud of include:

The only way you can truly know if employee satisfaction has improved is to measure it. That’s why we used the Gallop Q12 Meta-analysis to report to measure a 10% increase in employee engagement, 21% increase in profitability and a 20% increase in productivity.

While in 2017 we had 100% net growth in new hires, in 2018 we only grew by 6%. This increase is attributed to a lower turnover rate, internal promotions, and becoming more efficient in our operations.

Community Involvement

As long as we have the means to give back to the community, we will. As an apart of our ongoing mission to provide better care for all it’s crucial to assist seniors, those with special needs, people affected by disasters, and more. In 2018 we were able to:

This will assist us with becoming more recognizable and trusted brand as we add even more products and services. We’re extremely proud of our new logo, “Live Better Today and Tomorrow.”
