Our Story

Action Health is the leader in healthcare packaging servicing customers for over 37 years under the previous Action Bag Company brand. In 1980, our founder, Marie Gebbie, started the family business with a belief in a simple yet extremely effective new product at the time, the reclosable zip bag. Her daughter, Nancy Cwynar, joined the business in 1982 and became the CEO & Owner of the company in 1995. In 2014, Nancy’s son, Sean Cwynar, joined the company as our Director of Sales and became President in 2016. During Sean’s progression to President, he launched a rebranding to better align to our customers and the changing healthcare market by rebranding Action Bag Company to Action Health.  Our new name and logo reflect the evolution of our business. Honoring our entrepreneurial history, we are consistently expanding our product line and providing expert solutions to our customers.
