Gold’s Gym, FDG Brands Enter Into Licensing Partnership

Gold’s Gym and First Design Global (FDG Brands), a manufacturer of plastic injection and melamine tabletop items, have entered into a licensing partnership to develop and manufacture Gold’s Gym-branded drinkware and food storage products.

“Gold’s Gym is a globally recognized iconic American brand and synonymous with health and fitness,” said Mike Pun, vp/operations at FDG Brands. “It is the perfect fit for our fitness hydration and food storage products. We can’t wait to reveal our first line of Gold’s Gym-branded products to the public.”

The partnership will include the development of sports bottles, protein shakers, and snack containers. The product line is slated to launch in early 2016 and will be available at major retailers across North America, noted the company.

“We are very excited about our partnership with FDG Brands,” said Michael Cobb, CMO of Gold’s Gym. “There aren’t many companies that can rival the level of experience and quality that FDG Brands provides. We couldn’t ask for a better licensee to manufacture Gold’s Gym-branded sports drinkware, and snack and food containers.”
