CON-CRĒT by Vireo Systems Establishes Plattsmouth, Nebraska, Creatine Manufacturing Plant

CON-CRET by Vireo Systems, the #1 most widely licensed and best-selling bioavailable creatine, establishes its first creatine manufacturing plant in the U.S. in Plattsmouth, Nebraska. The $16.6 million project is expected to create 200 jobs over the coming years.

The facility will provide domestically sourced raw materials for the growing distribution of creatine supplements, and improve supply chain and sustainability footprints, according to company officials.

"Vireo is investing in this plant and in our CON-CRET® brand because concentrated creatine is arguably the most important supplement a person can take to support their overall health (and fitness)," says Mark Faulkner, Vireo CEO. "Basically, if a cell doesn't have adequate energy to function at its best, nothing else really matters. Creatine is the key to driving the energy of every cell in the body; and many American diets need more creatine. Being the first and only domestically made creatine aligns with our mission to provide innovative and science-backed products that every-body needs for health and wellness."

Vireo Systems develops, manufactures and markets products and brands that enhance the health of humans and animals. CON-CRET® is the company’s trusted brand for nutritional supplements driven by innovation, quality, and performance.

"This marks the next step in expansion for Vireo and deepens its commitment and investment in Cass County," noted Governor Jim Pillen. "The fact that Nebraska is now home to a business that is producing its product within the United States bodes well for opportunities like this in the future."
