Core Health & Fitness LLC to invest $2 million in commercial fitness products manufacturing operation
RICHMOND - Governor Terry McAuliffe announced today that Core Health & Fitness LLC, a leader in developing and marketing advanced strength and cardio equipment for the fitness industry, will invest $2 million to expand the former Med-Fit operation in Grayson County.
The facility has manufactured Nautilus commercial products for more than 34 years. Virginia successfully competed against California and China for the project, which will create 250 new jobs.
Speaking about today’s announcement, Governor McAuliffe said, “The addition of Core Health & Fitness LLC to Grayson County’s corporate roster is tremendous for a region that has suffered from recent employment loss. With this investment, the company will build on the existing product line and revitalize an operation that has manufactured Nautilus commercial products for more than three decades, creating 250 new, valuable jobs. Grayson County’s history in producing commercial fitness, wellness and rehabilitation products makes it a great fit for Core Health & Fitness, and we are confident that this project will be of great economic benefit to Southwest Virginia.”
