Vitalpax, owned and operated by brothers Dalyon, Jacob and Ben Ruesch, is one of the largest supplement manufacturers in Utah and the country. Inspired by their great grandmother Mattie Ruesch’s creed to living a life of vigor and health through seeking natural foods, Vitalpax was started as a small business in the Ruesch home in 2014 and today has evolved into a multimillion-dollar enterprise occupying a 100,000 square foot facility with over 70 employees.
“We are very grateful to be in a position where we can provide jobs to our community and help it grow as we engage with our friends and neighbors,” said Jacob Ruesch. “As we do this, we strive to make Vitalpax a wonderful place to work.”
At over 6,000 square feet, the new facility will allow the company to take more capacity in their production lines to better meet the growing demand for quality supplements in the neutraceutical industry. This expansion will add even greater capacity for manufacturing and warehousing more product, and enable to company to continue supporting rural development by providing more employment opportunities in the local community.
