About Us York, SC

AlphaVets is a family-owned and -operated small business that values relationships above quick sales. Our customers can reach us 24/7. We are a purpose-driven enterprise led by owners with a long history of public service and taking care of others in need. Family values and integrity guide our decisions. Serving your immediate procurement needs is important, however, becoming your long-term partner is imperative. From all of us here at AlphaVets, you have our sincerest gratitude for the opportunity to earn your business.


Founded in 1988 as Verna’s Ventures (VV) specialized in packaging and graphic marketing solutions. In 1994, VV entered the government contracting arena, obtaining its first GSA contract to sell janitorial and hospitality supplies, food service items, and cleaning equipment. Shortly thereafter in 1996, VV added its second GSA contract to sell shipping and packaging goods. VV became a well-respected distributor of custom shipping packaging, corrugated products, and large capacity/bulk containers over the next several decades.

AlphaVets, Inc. was formed in 2019 by CEO Cynthia Spragg to leverage her healthcare and military experience transitioning into the civilian world as an entrepreneur. After serving thirty-five years in the military, a driving factor important to Cindy is her professional life after military service that keeps her connected with fellow Veterans. Partners Joan Wunk and Shawn Lydon share Cindy’s vision and values while adding diverse business and industry expertise, allowing her to expand the scope of her business idea. Joan Wunk brings over twenty years of experience directly managing several government contracts (including janitorial and shipping/packaging goods) as well as Acting Director on several large multi-million-dollar government projects.

In 2020, after vetting multiple companies, AlphaVets purchased Verna’s Ventures. This acquisition presented an ideal opportunity for our ownership team; directly aligning with our experience and providing the perfect vehicle for growth. AlphaVets has since expanded the company’s product offerings to include office supplies and hardware, substantially increasing revenue from previous years. Strategically, each partner is involved in building relationships within their areas of expertise, working towards set goals for each product line.
