Journalists love to go behind the scenes. The “hard hat” tour is always popular because media can share news on what’s happening before buildings are completed, ribbons are cut and products are produced.
That’s why we opened the doors today to our $24 million Nutrition Product Plant at our mile-long manufacturing complex in Ada, Michigan. Media toured the state-of-the-art production facility, interviewed our operations leaders and sampled the Nutrilite products that will be made there.
This is the first time Amway has produced Nutrilite products in Michigan. The plant will produce our best-selling NUTRILITE protein powder, sold by distributors all over the world. Other products to be made at the facility include POSITRIM meal replacement powder, ACTIVE 8 powder drink mix and INVISIFIBER fiber packs.
Another first is an innovative work system designed by and for employees at the new plant, including a new work schedule and long-term career path. Nutrilite employees in California worked closely with the Michigan team to transfer knowledge and processes.
For this tour, instead of hard hats, media donned safety goggles, lab coats and hair nets to tour the three-story facility.
