— HISTORY —
Established in 1986, GSMS, Incorporated (GSMS) is a U.S.A. based company founded by James (Jim) Stroud a veteran of the U.S. Air Force. Stroud served as a Contracting Specialist in the U.S. Air Force from 1982 to 1986. His experience as a supply buyer for a 90-bed hospital and a newly constructed dental clinic located at March Air Force Base in Riverside, California, helped him develop a vision for a medical industry business that would later become GSMS. Upon his honorable discharge from the Air Force, Stroud presented his business idea to an acquaintance, who was a pharmacist. From 1986 to 1992, they developed a business that increased its revenue tenfold in six years.
