LOCKMED MISSION STATEMENT

LOCKMED's Mission is to raise awareness on safeguarding medications in the home and to help reduce the problem of prescription drug abuse in the United States.

ABOUT US

LOCKMED Medical Product Company is a small medical product company with a charitable mission based in Pittsburgh, PA. The company is primarily focused on educational efforts on raising awareness to safeguard medications in the home through the development products to store prescription drugs to help reduce the problem of prescription drug abuse.

The Company was started by a pain management doctor who became alarmed at the problem of prescription drug abuse after starting practice in McKeesport, PA. Out of this concern and the growing national problem, he began to develop containers to store medications with the assistance of the local Small Business Development Center at Duquesne University in 2008. Since that time, LOCKMED has taken the lead in educational efforts on the need to safeguard medications in the home. The company has built a coalition in the form of partnerships with over 70 Drug Task Forces and Community Coalition groups to highlight this issue.
