Fallbrook, CA - Med-Fit Systems, Inc. announced today that they are bringing the popular Nautilus® F3 Series free weight product back from China and will manufacture it in their Independence, Virginia, facility.
"In an era when more and more suppliers to the industry are taking their products and jobs overseas,we are doing just the opposite, said Dean Sbragia, CEO of Med-Fit Systems, Inc. After careful analysis, we determined that we could compete favorably on price and exceed quality and innovation criteria by returning it to our own plant."
It is anticipated that bringing the F3 line to American soil will add more jobs for Virginia and Grayson County, a state that has been hit hard by the lingering recession.
"The county and commonwealth of Virginia played a vital role in the acquisition by Med-Fit of the Nautilus® commercial plant, added Sbragia. It is with great pride that we can now provide more jobs for hard-working Virginians, by bringing this iconic brand home."
Med-Fit Systems,Inc. is a twenty-three year old physical therapy and senior care products provider located in Southern California. On February 19, 2010, they announced the purchase of Nautilus' commercial company assets.
