SNEWS® Live — Thirty years ago Johnson Health Tech took its first order: $200 for 400 barbell pieces. “It was a small order, but a big step for our company,” said CEO and founder Peter Lo. Today, Johnson is a leading developer of fitness equipment and has aspirations to become even bigger — the best and largest in the world by 2010. During the grand opening of a new 214,000-square-foot facility near Madison, Wis., SNEWS® Live sat down with Lo to learn a bit about Lo’s philosophy, his company’s history and to discover plans for the future.
