Letter from the President

JPC and its subsidiary Creative Source Concepts (CSC) established themselves as charter members of MAGNET GROUP, (Mid-Atlantic Network of Shared Services Cooperative), one of the largest and oldest capital equipment and boutique GPOs in the nation.
As a participant facility in JPC or CSC’s GPO program, facilities may purchase on approximately 200 MAGNET GROUP agreements for “contracted volume discount savings”.
