February 4, 2014—A consumer wellness products and lifestyle company is making big plans for 2014 global expansion. It Works! skincare and body contouring products are available Feb. 1 in Denmark, Finland, Germanyand Spain, and in March, Norway and Switzerland.
That puts It Works! in 18 countries total.
"We continue to see more opportunities for It Works! to expand worldwide," said CEO Mark B. Pentecost. "Our domestic growth in the United States demonstrates that we have a unique opportunity for It Works! products and independent distributors through expansion internationally. People across the globe desire instant-results while maintaining a healthy body inside and out."
It Works! is also improving its systems in the 12 countries where it already operates. In the first quarter, It Works! is adding an additional warehouse in Europe. So that customers may receive products quickly and efficiently, Canada and Australia will receive in-country shipping from new It Works! facilities, and Australia's economy is getting a boost with recently announced in-country manufacturing.
Pentecost made these announcements at the company's annual conference in Tampa, where 10,000 people attended Freedom 2014 at the Tampa Convention Center. The conference had a $2.3 million economic impact, according to local convention bureau executives.
In November 2013, It Works! launched in France, making that the 12th country where the company does business.
