Health and wellness company relocates to Mt. Pleasant

June 8, 2017 by  

Fitness First USA, a division of A&Z Pharmaceutical, Inc., has recently moved its headquarters from Portsmouth, New Hampshire to Mt. Pleasant.

A special ribbon-cutting ceremony was held to welcome the company, which will also have an e-commerce distribution facility and a flagship retail store e-commerce distribution. The store will offer such items as personal care products, vitamins, supplements, healthy food and more. Also offered will be personal training, fitness, and wellness programs and an e-commerce platform will be used to ship products around the world.

Vice President of Sales and Marketing, A&Z Pharmaceutical, Inc., Kevin McCourt, commented that the company is excited about opening these new facilities in Mt. Pleasant which is known for its residents who are active and focused on health.

The company promises to invest $600,000 in its first year, which will broaden the tax base in the town, and bring 10 new jobs. New employees generally need business cards for their positions and a business card printing company to provide this service.

Linda Page, Mayor or Mt. Pleasant, said that the town is delighted to welcome Fitness First USA as residents are committed to a healthy lifestyle and the town to providing new economic opportunities.

This relocation has been considered as a success in the Landing Pad program of the South Carolina Department of Commerce which works with companies to move to the state.
