Testimonials

“Auburn has saved me so much time and money over the years. As an independent pharmacist, at times I struggle to meet my bottom line. I have to shop for all my generics and Auburn is usually where I find the best prices. Not to mention all the great things they do for the community with their Give Back Campaigns.”

Environmental Impact

Auburn’s sustainability initiatives include our corporate headquarters & distribution facility landfill waste reduction initiatives.

All incoming freight materials received through Auburn’s warehouse are repurposed in our packing and shipping unit. Additionally, Auburn recycles over 52 tons of material annually and is invested in creating sustainable policies and protocols to ensure our objectives are met.

We continually foster a culture of environmental stewardship in the workplace by hosting Earth Day luncheons and employee contests. Since the onset of the landfill reduction program, we have reduced our landfill waste by 50%.
