4Life recently celebrated a milestone in India, where the company hosted employees and top leaders at the grand opening of its new office in Mumbai. The facility will serve as the new headquarters of 4Life India, which has operated from Mumbai, the capital city of the state of Maharashtra, since the market’s launch in 2008.
The Salt Lake City-based company has also announced an expansion of its Surabaya, Indonesia office. Like most direct selling companies, 4Life designs its offices with the independent distributor in mind. The Mumbai headquarters features meeting rooms for distributor training, a sales counter, and large office space for operations, marketing and distributor services.
“Our office includes a beautiful distributor area with ample space for distributors to interact with their prospects and share the message of 4Life,” said Manoj Shirodkar, 4Life India General Manager. “The look of the office is full of positive energy and represents the 4Life philosophy of Together, Building People.”
India is one of direct selling’s billion dollar markets, and while the regulatory atmosphere has posed challenges to many companies, industry sales show no signs of slowing. Retail sales topped $1.2 billion in 2013, an 11.7 percent increase over the prior year. India ranked sixth—behind China, Argentina, Venezuela, Indonesia and the Philippines—in terms of sales percentage growth.
