(VANCOUVER, Wash., USA October 3, 2006) Cardinal Nutrition, nutritional ingredients company and manufacturer of OptiMSM®, will be now known as Bergstrom Nutrition.
“The name change recognizes a new commitment to significant growth and diversification while honoring our entrepreneurial values” noted David Lakey, President of Bergstrom Nutrition. “We are investing in plant, personnel and research to accelerate our growth to the next level.”
George Bergstrom III founded the manufacturing company in 1988 and was the first to bring its proprietary OptiMSM® brand of MSM to the human nutrition market in 1989. Bergstrom, an accomplished chemical engineer, assembled a highly experienced operations and technical team to produce significantly better ingredient products now used by virtually all leading nutritional joint health brands worldwide.
“While the name on the factory building has changed, our commitment to customer success and customer satisfaction has not. If anything, projects underway at the new “Bergstrom” will only bring more marketplace results for our customers and greater consumer satisfaction as we grow”, Lakey commented.
Recent changes accompanying the name change include a new worldwide strategic growth plan, broadening experience of Bergstrom’s board of directors, increased plant capacity and expansion into broader ingredient channels. The company’s new website is www.bergstromnutrition.com. Information about Bergstrom’s flagship product OptiMSM® can be found at www.optimsm.com.
The corporate name remains Cardinal Associates, dba Bergstrom Nutrition
