USANA Health Sciences Inc., a Salt Lake City-based multilevel company whose distributors sell vitamins and other nutritional products, said it has opened a new office in Mexico City.
The company said it has been seeing strong increases in sales and the number of associates in Mexico. In order to support that growing market, USANA said it has built the new office to improve customer service, add convenience for those ordering products and provide a central location to hold associates and executive meetings.
Dan Macuga, USANA's chief communications officer, said the company already is among the top five supplement companies operating in Mexico. "This new office will help us continue to build our presence in Mexico."
The 10,000-square-foot building will house 38 employees with room for 325. It is equipped with three large conference rooms, customer service desks and a product show room. The building also has energy efficient light fixtures and a mechanism to recycle water and collect rainwater for consumption.
