AnMar is a manufacturer and distributor of a wide variety of vitamins, plant extracts, nutraceutical ingredients, amino acids and other chemical related products.

Hugo Galletta, head of CellMark’s Chemical Division, said that the owners of AnMar have done an exceptional job at establishing itself in the U.S. nutraceuticals market with good quality suppliers and its own manufacturing capabilities … with the added capabilities of CellMark’s financial strength and global reach we see a winning combination for AnMar’s suppliers, customers and employees.

Alan Pollard, senior vice president and sales director, AnMar, said “CellMark’s intention to grow and develop AnMar’s business beyond its traditional boundaries is a good sign for all involved. The business models employed by both AnMar and CellMark are quite similar which should make for a smooth transition.”
