USANA’s Manufacturing Plans Expand in China

At USANA, we’re always working to make things better, and we think our latest announcement is perfectly inline with that creed.

Today, we’re excited to announce plans to build a new, bigger state-of-the-art manufacturing and production facility in Beijing.

Plans for the high-tech facility reflect USANA’s vision for growing its business and developing opportunities in China, says USANA CEO Dave Wentz. “At USANA, we demonstrate our commitment to providing our customers with the highest quality nutritionals by manufacturing essentially all of our products in-house. This amazing facility will further that commitment.”

The $40 million project will be built near a number of other high-tech industries in the Beijing Economic and Technological Development Area. Work on the new facility is slated to begin in 2014 and is expected to be operational in the later part of 2015. When completed, the nearly 319,000-square-foot site will be the largest in all of USANA’s 19 international markets.


Update: Nov. 5, 2013

Jim Brown, USANA’s chief operating officer, provides additional information pertaining to Monday’s news:

“This new investment doesn’t change the way USANA currently operates. USANA already has a state-of-the-art facility in China, which supplies products only to our customers in China. Governmental and direct selling regulations require that companies manufacturing products for China residents do so in China,” Jim says. “The new facility, which is slated to open in 2015, is designed to prepare USANA for future growth in the country.

“We are not planning to change our distribution network and USANA’s manufacturing facility in the United States will continue to manufacture and distribute products to all USANA markets outside of China.”

    Although it is great news that Usana is expanding to the Asian Markets, it is of grave concern that the state of the art manufacturing and production facility will be built in China. Better to look towards Singapore for this.

    I live in china and it is the mecca of medical plants…..many companies are after the knowledge of chinese traditional medicine based on plants…it is amazing how big the demand is for ginko biloba, and many other plants all over the world..USANA HEALTH SCIENCES is a visionary company …in china you find the plants that are needed to manufacture the products plus other benefits…what I can tell you is that the products are and will be the best of the best….in china, many people are suffering from contamination and heavy metals..USANA in HONG KONG and BABY CARE IN mainland china are greatly needed here, specially this time of year.

    When I talk about Usana, I always emphasize the highly praised *quality* of the products and the best *location* of the factory being in the USA. As the USA has very strict guidelines and standards when it comes to food and drug manufacturing. Then I follow up those statements with a question like: If you’re going to choose between two supplements, one manufactured in the USA and one manufactured in China, which one would you choose?
    We all know what my prospects answer would be. Here in the Philippines, we know that China=bad/mangled quality, while USA/Japan=great quality.

    Please Usana, think about this move!

    And nothing in the article says that products manufactured in China will stay in China and will not reach Asia-Pacific/European market. That’s what I’m worried about.
