Boca Raton, FL – Twinlab Consolidation Corp. announced last week that it will cease operations at its American Fork, UT, facility during the first half of 2018.
The facility was the only manufacturing plant in the company’s lineup of businesses where it made products for its own brands, including Twinlab, Alvita, and Reserveage Nutrition. According to a press release, the move is designed to improve operational efficiencies, and will transition the manufacturing of the balance of its products to strategic manufacturing partners.
“We are streamlining our supply chain utilizing the model of our award-winning NutraScience Labs division. This allows access to exclusive technologies, processes, and capacity to deliver excellence in customer service and care while at the same time optimizing our cost structure in support of investment behind our brands. Twinlab is one of the world’s most recognized supplement brands, and both the Reserveage Nutrition and Alvita brands are known market leaders. Our focus, resources, and operation will be directed toward continuing to innovate and grow market share within our leading consumer branded products,” stated CEO Naomi Whittel in the statement.
In March 2016 Twinlab Consolidated Holdings named Whittel as its new CEO, replacing Tom Tolworthy just months after Twinlab acquired her company, Organic Holdings, distributor of Reserveage.
