MANCHESTER, N.H.—Emerson Ecologics, LLC, a provider of professional nutritional supplements to healthcare practitioners and their patients, announced its strategic partnership with Thorne Research Inc., a company that supplies nutritional supplements in the healthcare professional market channel. Effective June 2, Throne Research products will be available to Emerson Ecologics practitioner customers throughout the United States. Emerson will also offer access to Thorne Research's specialty product lines, including ThorneVET for animal health, OncoQOL for cancer supportive care and Thorne Therapeutics, launching August 2014, for skin and hair care support. While Thorne Research's direct sales of its product lines to healthcare professionals will continue, their decision to partner with Emerson Ecologics will further expand their reach in the practitioner market.
"Thorne Research is one of our most frequently requested product lines," said Emerson Ecologics CEO, Andy Greenawalt. "Each company shares a commitment to high quality products and exceptional customer service to support healthcare practitioners and their patients. Our collaboration will truly provide customers an easy and convenient one-stop source for all their nutritional supplement products."
Emerson Ecologics will offer the complete line of current Thorne Research healthcare practitioner products at the same price as direct through Thorne Research. In addition, Emerson will continue to carry thousands of other products used healthcare practitioners across the United States.
"Through this strategic partnership with Emerson Ecologics, we are making Thorne Research products more accessible to healthcare practitioners across the United States,” said Paul Jacobson, CEO of Thorne Research. “We recognize that practitioners are seeking easier and more convenient ways to access high-quality nutritional supplement products for patients. We expect that our respective customer service capabilities will be greatly enhanced by this partnership."
