Founded by Ted Howard in 1971, ParaMedical Labels of Cooo… kamonga Inc. has come a long way from its humble beginnings in the garage of the Howards’ southern CA home. When Ted Howard first started out he was originally working in the pharmaceutical packaging industry. In this industry he frequently interacted with medical doctors, as well as veterinarians. He foresaw a need for pharmaceutical labeling in the veterinary industry and was able to purchase one machine needed to manufacture labels.
Ted happened to be quite the idea man and decided that he wanted to have a company name that people would remember. At this time Ted lived near the city of Cucamonga. After pondering a bit, the name “Cucamonga,” sparked a memory. Comedian Jack Benny had a radio show in the ‘40s and ‘50s. There was a part of the show where Mel Blanc played the part of a conductor calling out “All aboard for Anaheim, Azuza and Cooo. . .kamonga!” (The “ooo…” was exaggerated.) Ted went to the Cucamonga post office and obtained a P.O. box. Most folks thought it was an imaginary place, so when they saw an address in Cucamonga it was something to remember! His idea has worked so well that at veterinary conferences around the U.S. when folks see us and can’t remember our name, they simply say, “Hey, Cooo… kamonga!”
Ted Howard left his legacy of ParaMedical Labels in the hands of his wife, “Delta” Dee Howard, and their son, Dave Howard. After the passing of Ted Howard in 1980, Dee and Dave Howard “ran the show” until Dee retired in 1997. She still pops in every now and then to oversee operations.
ParaMedical Labels has since moved its warehouse to northern California, nestled in the foothills of the Sierra Nevadas. We have now grown to an excellent team of nine, (including 5 family members!) and manufacture millions of labels in-house each year for animal loving advocates and consumers alike.
Here at ParaMedical Labels, we have a commitment to delivering excellent customer service, where our consumers will never have to deal with an automated system.
