Europa Sports has an experienced team of sales representatives that deliver a portfolio of health and wellness brands to most gyms, health, and wellness accounts across the US. Europa Sports maintains its excellent service level through seven distribution centers throughout the US that provide direct delivery to accounts as well as an efficient telemarketing and fulfillment operation. In addition to training Europa personnel and launching promotions, Celsius Ambassador event teams work side by side with Europa personnel at fitness events, such as the recent Olympia Expo.
“Europa Sports is the country’s leading supplier of sports supplements and is a strategic partner for Celsius in a market that contains some of our most loyal consumers,” said Kelly Michols, Senior Vice President of Sales. “The health and fitness retail channel can be difficult to service as it consists of many independently owned or franchise accounts.
