Procurement Professionals, Inc was founded in 1958 by Gene Lapoten. After returning home from World War II, Gene became a sales representative for an electronics manufacturer in the Philadelphia area. His territory included the numerous military purchasing facilities located in the Philadelphia area. Shortly thereafter Gene decided to become an independent manufacturers representative.

In 1982 after Gene ran his one-man sales rep firm, his son Randy joined him. Michael Freedman joined randy and Gene in 1985 and is currently the president of PPI. together this team of experienced pros has been providing personalized service and continuous growth in the specialized industry of military purchasing.

Procurement Professionals Inc now employs 8 full-time and 2 part-time employees. We believe we are the oldest, and possibly the only manufacturers rep firm, exclusively dedicated to assisting firms who desire to sell to the United States military.
