On 9 April 2015, SmartVet was honored as one of Kansas City’s most innovative companies in the inaugural class of Kansas State University’s Ingenuity Central.
Ingenuity Central is a hub connecting the most inventive ideas, technologies and processes across diverse industries -recognizing leading-edge ideas from a dynamic intersection of sectors across Johnson County and the greater Kansas City metro area. On hand to accept the award was Randall Tosh, Executive VP of SmartVet: "We are thrilled at being recognized as a leading innovator in animal health. Listening to and working with cattle producers, our VetGun Insecticide Delivery System has taken years of painstaking development. Working with our distribution partners AgriLabs, VetGun was successfully launched in Feb 2014. We now have thousands of VetGuns in the hands of cattle ranchers across the U.S. and an exciting pipeline of new internal and external parasite control products in the regulatory process." SmartVet's US headquarters are based at the state-of-the-art International Animal Health and Food Safety Institute in Olathe's new Bioscience Precinct, Kansas.
