“We’ve rapidly expanding our global reach”, adds Maloney. “We’re building new markets including Russia, Brasil, Turkey and Mexico and planning to opening up more new markets soon. Over the past year we also bought back our distributor network in Chile, Peru, Denmark, and Canada, and we’re seeing growth there too.”
