Welcome to VOMEX

Who We Are
Born in Havana, Cuba, Vomex founder Jose A. Pereda has been known to be fueled by his environment. He arrived in Miami, Florida, just days before his 12th birthday without speaking any English. Not only did he adapt to his new environment, but succeeded. He went on to graduate from Miami Coral Park Senior High in 1980 and later became a Certified Personal Fitness Trainer through the National Academy of Sports Medicine. In 1990, he started his very own personal fitness training company, which he still operates to this day.
In the middle of a training session with a client, on September 11, 2001, Jose witnessed the event that would again change his life forever. When the Twin Towers fell in NYC, Jose admired the heroic efforts of those brave men and woman that gave up their lives in order to save others. At that moment, he realized that he wanted to become a Firefighter/Paramedic. By 2003, he completed the Coral Springs Fire Academy program, while holding a mortgage, supporting a family, and running a business. Later that same year, Jose became a licensed Emergency Medical Technician (EMT) and the following year completed the Paramedic Program at Miami Dade College with Dean’s List recognition. In October 2004, Jose was hired by the Coral Gables Fire Department where he graduated as the #1 Recruit in his class. Moving up through the ranks from Firefighter to Assigned Paramedic to now Rescue Lieutenant, Jose also achieved the honorable recognition of Firefighter Of The Year for 2016.
While being so closely tied into the medical field, Jose saw a need for a product that just did not exist. He had a vision to create a revolutionary and unique product in 2014, a self-deploying, hands-free emesis bag. That is how Vomex was born.
As a family-owned business, Vomex thrives off of the relationships fostered and the network built throughout the last four years. The team behind Vomex strives to “Provide the Best, Fulfill the Need, and Eliminate the Mess”.
“The bag's design and ease of deployment provides for excellent patient care and comfort. The Vomex emesis bag allows for excellent patient protection while very effective in containing bodily fluids from spilling onto the patient compartment and more importantly the patient themselves.”
