FAQs

What is KOACORE and what does the company do?

KOACORE is a full-scale sourcing consultancy that provides quality-assured PPE, testing services and consulting know-how for business and organizations everywhere.

PPE sourcing is complex. At KOACORE, we provide the requisite expertise and knowledge to navigate the chaotic landscape of PPE on behalf of our customers, delivering the right PPE in the right quantities within budgetary and stated time frames.

Additionally, we offer on-site, drive-through, distributed and rapid automated COVID-19 testing for your organization and its people through Bloom Health Partners, one of the nation’s most respected and utilized testing providers.

Finally, we provide an array of consulting services—from developing PPE procurement and deployment strategies to advising on sourcing, logistics and many other business operations. Whatever their challenges may be, consulting clients rely on KOACORE’s unique skill sets, business relationships and networks to boost safety, efficiency and profitability.

What is the origin of the company’s name?

The name KOACORE is an amalgamation of two words: Koa and core.

The Koa tree (also called Acacia koa) is one of the dominant trees in Hawaiian forests. It is towering in height, often reaching 50-80 feet, and mature Koas, which can live for over 100 years, have diameters that can exceed four feet. Koa wood has a beautifully deep and rich color and varied grain pattern, and it’s highly prized for a variety of uses, including wood instruments like guitars, ukuleles and more.

Equally notable, Koa trees have dense, strong and wide root structures. Like our namesake tree, our company’s roots run deep and wide, encompassing a network of trusted supply and testing partners, along with global manufacturers and distributors. KOACORE is a business built on connections and networks—always growing, forever strong. And so the Koa tree is emblematic of our company, its mission and its people.

What about core? Well, core ties directly to the Core Values that guide us in our work and our lives every day. We live by our Core Values and cherish them, for they are the key to our success, our customers’ satisfaction and our desire to make a positive impact on our world.

Take the beauty, strength and majesty of Koa, combine it with the driving power of Core Values and you have KOACORE—a trusted and enduring partner for the road ahead.
