Group Purchasing Advantage


Group Purchasing Advantage started in 1987 in Little Rock, Arkansas as a small, three-employee operation. Founder and current president, Wes Robertson, began his career in 1984 with the Arkansas Healthcare Association administering in the group purchasing program.

In 1987, the AHCA board of directors decided to remove the purchasing program out of the AHCA and allowed Wes to take over the program. He then created Group Purchasing of Arkansas. Once the company began to grow into other regions and states, it was renamed Group Purchasing Advantage.


With many great successes throughout the years, the company began to steadily grow. Starting out with only ten vendor contracts and less than 100 clients, GPA has over 700 vendors and 400 dedicated clients today.
