NST has base operations here in the U.S. as well as in India. NST-USA conducts business in North and South America, Europe, Middle-East and Australia. NST-India conducts business in all of Asia. Having a strong base in Asia, NST has tremendous reach in sourcing key ingredients from high quality manufacturers in that part of the world. With our capabilities to source ingredients from all over the world, NST has inadvertently developed into a leading formulation company. Currently we formulate and manufacture dietary supplement products for private labeled brands here in the U.S. and in other parts of the world. We have the capability to consult our scientific staff on each formulation to substantiation efficacy; in addition, we have the capability to conduct IRB, clinical trials to further substantiate any product or formula. NST can source, manufacture and substantiate finished products for the dietary supplement industry very cost-effectively.
NST has organized one of the most effective distribution/sales network in any industry. Instead of taking the approach of hiring in-house sales representatives for each territory or vertical; we have opted to set up partnerships with independent sales agents and brokers that have years of experience and wealth of contacts in their specific territory or business segments. Taking our approach, we have been able to significantly lower over-head thus being able to pass on the savings to our customers. Utilizing independent agents gives us the flexibility to approach a particular territory or market segment in a variety of ways; additionally we can appeal to the entrepreneurial mind-set of these individuals with our compensation plans to really fuel their efforts. Through this network, NST has more than 25 sales professionals in the field in all combined markets. Through this network, NST serves all segments of the dietary supplement, medical food, food and nutritional markets.
