NSP’s Move to New Corporate Offices This Month

Nature’s Sunshine’s executives and marketing divisions moved to our corporate offices in Provo, Utah over 20 years ago. Throughout the years since, Nature’s Sunshine has continued to grow as sales and other groups also made the move to Provo. Just as we have grown over the last two decades, the world around us has too. Today, our offices are somewhat hidden. The building has aged, and it no longer represents our image of the company.

With that in mind, last fall Nature’s Sunshine put in motion a plan to move our corporate offices to a brand new building in a burgeoning area of the Utah Valley. This new building represents a tremendous investment in our future as it offers a host of benefits to our company and our distributors.

The new headquarters will offer many benefits:

• This beautiful building will serve as a showcase for our distributors, managers and customers, reflecting the quality, stability and legacy of Nature’s Sunshine and of 40 years of people helping people to improve health and financial well-being. A more functional, professional public face of the company will better reflect our brand and image.

• Our entire first floor is for you! We’ll have a retail shop full of NSP logo merchandise and space that you can utilize when you are in town for Rising Star events, manager summits, etc.

• As part of our vision to make NSP a household name, this new location will increase brand awareness as patrons visit Thanksgiving Point for golf, gardens, concerts and more, and as 16 million vehicles drive past this location every year. The NSP building will feature crown signage visible from the freeway.

• NSP is proud that our new building is certified LEED silver. That means it’s being built to exacting environmentally friendly specifications with regard to materials and energy usage. Our new building helps to strengthen Nature’s Sunshine’s position as a “green” company.

• All of these benefits come at a price comparable to the current lease of our Provo buildings! View the video on the beautiful new building.

We’re also renovating areas of our Spanish Fork manufacturing plant. View a video on what’s going to happen there.

NSP Home Office is Moving on August 10th!

NSP’s website and phone systems will be temporarily unavailable. That includes the MY NSP websites. At least it’s being done at a time when there is least online traffic for shopping. The sites will be unavailable from 8:00 p.m. (Mountain Time) on Friday, August 10 until Sunday morning, August 12.

Orders Sales and Customer Service will be unavailable longer beginning on Friday, August 10th at 1:00 p.m. (Mountain Time) with regular hours beginning again on Monday, August 13.

Please plan accordingly.

Stick Pack Products Warrant New Machine at NSP

Nature’s Sunshine Products recently acquired a stick pack machine to allow the manufacture of all stick pack products in-house. Stick Packs are single-use powder drinks packaged in a convenient plastic “stick” that can be torn across the top and poured into water for easy mixing. Nature’s Sunshine uses stick packs in its Solstic® line of products and in the drink mix portion of CleanStart®.

Previously, stick pack packaging was out-sourced. Purchasing the stick pack machine allows Nature’s Sunshine better control over the quality of the product and a shorter lead time. Within the next six months, NSP will also install a machine that will count and package all of the stick packs into cartons, further improving packaging quality and turn-around time.

NSP’s current stick pack products include the Solstic line: Cardio, Energy, Immune, Revive and Twenty-Four. And stick packs as a part of CleanStart Wild Berry and CleanStart Apple-Cinnamon.

It is broken into four main sections: disease overviews, treatment options, drug information (includes information on prescription drugs, over the counter drugs, herbs and nutritional supplements) and clinical trials.

Type in the name of an herb, supplement, health condition, etc., and you will be guided to entries with extensive information. One word of caution: Anyone with computer access to Wikipedia can edit the entries. As a result, the entries are quite up to date, but there can also be significant misinformation.
