Dallas-based Mannatech is advancing its Mission 5 Million movement with the launch of its operations in Spain. The wellness and skincare company, which celebrated its 20th anniversary this year, has now expanded into 24 markets worldwide.
“Adding Spain to our European market was an essential and natural fit for Mannatech,” said Dr. Robert Sinnott, CEO and Chief Science Officer, in the company’s release. “We have seen a demand for our products and business there that is unprecedented, and we believe that this initial launch will precede an era of long-term growth for this region.”
Mannatech reports that it has targeted additional European markets for expansion following its launch in Spain. Europe, the Middle East and Africa (EMEA)—currently Mannatech’s lowest sales region—generated 8 percent of net sales in 2013. For the quarter ended Sept. 30, 2014, EMEA net sales increased to $4.9 million, up 32.4 percent over third quarter 2013. Mannatech attributes its growth in the region to a rising number of active associates and members.
