IQ Formulations Makes Charitable Donation to the Christopher and Dana Reeve Foundation

IQ Formulations Makes Charitable Donation to the Christopher and Dana Reeve Foundation

Sunrise, FL (PRWEB) May 07, 2015

IQ Formulations, an industry-leading provider of health and nutritional supplements, today announced its generous charitable donation to help support the vital research and efforts of the Christopher and Dana Reeve Foundation. “Dedicated to curing spinal injury by funding innovative research, and improving the quality of life for people living with paralysis through grants, information and advocacy” – the mission statement of the Christopher and Dana Reeve Foundation offers hope and comfort to countless people who suffer from spinal injury.

IQ Formulations CEO Jay Cohen is a staunch supporter of the cutting edge research, hope and assistance provided by the Christopher and Dana Reeve Foundation.

“In 1995, I was in a terrible accident which resulted in a painful and severely broken back,” recalled Jay Cohen. “While I was incredibly fortunate to make a full recovery, countless others continue to face the tremendous daily challenges resulting from spinal injuries for the rest of their lives. With firsthand understanding of just how serious and detrimental an injury of this nature can be, I feel it’s my personal obligation to support this important organization which does so much good to help those affected by these injuries and holds a tremendous personal meaning for me.”

A firm believer in the Reeve Foundation’s commitment to empowering individuals affected by paralysis with the best knowledge, resources, support and community, IQ Formulations encourages others to also support this Foundation’s remarkable initiative to help people with paralysis live a dignified life. The original founders of the Reeve Foundation created the initiative when spinal cord research received minimal attention. The tragic injury suffered by Christopher Reeve dramatically changed this field of research to emerge as one of the most promising.

It takes a community to help those in need, which is why IQ Formulations remains dedicated to making a meaningful difference through philanthropy. Renowned for its generous philanthropy, IQ Formulations supports a variety of noble charities including St. Jude Children’s Hospital, Michael J. Fox Foundation for Parkinson’s Research, the American Red Cross, the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation and ASPCA. These charities, among many others, are profoundly important to Jay Cohen, his employees, and the overall core values shared by IQ Formulations.

With top-quality products, outstanding facilities, unparalleled customer service and industry-leading standards, IQ Formulations had established a nationwide reputation for excellence in health and nutritional supplements.

A nutritional supplements company headquartered in Tamarac has been recognized by the U.S. Chamber of Commerce with the 2016 Dream Big Blue Ribbon award.

IQ Formulations is the only company from South Florida to get the distinction, among five in Florida and part of the 100 businesses nationwide. The award is given to companies that stand out for their strategic planning, employee development, customer service and community involvement.

The four other Florida companies receiving awards are Engineering and Computer Simulations Inc. of Orlando and Bayshore Solutions, Miss America’s Outstanding Teen and Nitro Mobile Solutions, all of Tampa.

The 100 companies will be honored June 13 to 15 in Washington, D.C., during the 12th annual America’s Small Business Summit. One of the 100 will win the Dream Big Small Business of the Year, which comes with a $10,000 cash prize.

The South Florida Business Journal recently spotlighted IQ Formulations and CEO Jay Cohen with an article about IQ Formulations’ amazing business success, as well as its recognition as a DREAM BIG Blue Ribbon Award winner by the U.S. Chamber of Commerce. In his interview with SFBJ reporter Emon Reiser, IQ Formulations CEO Jay Cohen also shared his plans to expand the company’s product line and nearly double its facilities and workforce by the end of 2016.

Tamarac Company That Won U.S. Chamber Award Plans to Double Staff

By Emon Reiser 

South Florida Business Journal

IQ Formulations was the only South Florida business named among the U.S. Chamber of Commerce’s Blue Ribbon Small Business Award winners, out of 100 companies across the country. But the award won’t be the only achievement the Tamarac-based company can tout this year.

CEO Jay Cohen told the Business Journal that his company, which manufactures nutritional supplements, will nearly double its workforce and square footage by the end of 2016.

“We went from a makeshift laboratory in my kitchen — now we’re in a 40,000-square-foot facility,” Cohen said. IQ Formulations is now in negotiations for a second 40,000-square-foot facility also in Tamarac that will create more space for its rapidly growing workforce, he added.

IQ Formulations launched with just two employees in 2010 and has grown to 47 workers. Once the company’s new space opens, Cohen expects to soon have a total of 80 employees. IQ’s workforce isn’t the only thing that’s grown: in its first year, the manufacturer commanded $120,000 in revenue. This year, it’s expected to break $25 million, Cohen said.

The family-owned firm’s explosive growth was just one of the factors the U.S. Chamber of Commerce evaluated for its award. The winners were judged on four categories: strategic planning, employee development, customer service and community involvement.

“We’re extremely honored to be recognized,” Cohen said. “I feel especially proud that it’s not just based on the financial gain of the company, but also what we do behind the scenes.”

IQ Formulations’ workforce is very diverse, Cohen said, with about 80 percent of its employees representing minority communities. They are paid about 20 to 30 percent above Broward County’s average rate for the positions they employ, which include customer service, sales and graphic artistry, he added.

As for strategy, IQ Formulations is in the process of securing certifications for selling its products overseas. Currently, the company’s supplements are sold through 9,000 different retailers nationally, excluding websites. IQ Formulations sells its supplements in Vitamin Shop and Cohen says his company is in talks with GNC and Bodybuilding.com.

Next, the company plans to break into the grab-and-go business including protein bars.

With its latest win from the chamber, IQ Formulations has been entered into the Dream Big Small Business of the Year Award, which offers a $10,000 cash prize. The national award will be announced June 13-15 in Washington D.C.

“The best is yet to come,” Cohen said. “We have a lot of great things happening now.”
