The Purchase Of ANP Expected To Translate Into Future Growth

Published

on

International Consolidated Companies Inc (OTCMKTS:INCC) has moved ahead to serve its large number of shareholders with the details regarding the acquisition of the American Nutritional Products Inc. In its latest statement, INCC disclosed that it was pleased about the fact that it had gotten to a point where it was progressing with its long-term plan to acquire ANP.

It was formerly owned by Vitamin Research Products. Maria Watson and Rob according to sources were the ones that built the NSF cGMP Organic 55 thousand square foot facility which was fundamentally meant to complementary and VRP Prescriptions physician’s brands. The experience which hits the 50 plus years mark has versed them with all the knowledge that they need to make it through an industry characterized by pretty stiff business rivalry.

It was a few years back several buyers failed and they eventually left the building and what followed shortly was the move by Maria Watson to ‘start over.’ Maria has suffered much frustration in her life but what knocked her off her feet was the loss of her son who lost his life after the car he was travelling in got into an accident because the driver was drunk. She went into depression for a record period of about three years and some people almost thought she couldn’t make it through.

When everyone was about to give up on her, she got introduced to an amino acid formula and from that point her life was never the same again. She wasn’t going to take it for granted and she made a self-declaration to move out there and assist all those that needed her help. She was determined and would do everything within hers means.

With the passage of time she immersed herself into learning all that she could through research .In her research she learnt much about nutrients and how they affected the body. She takes her new interest as a passion as opposed to the mindset that it is a job.

The facility is characterized with cutting-edge tools, breakthrough technologies and it is also important to outline that the team of formulators regrouped in good time and they presented the name “American Nutritional Products Inc.”
