Founder and President
Vitalix was established in 1989 when a young Greg Olson decided to go into the tub business full-time. Raised in small-town Minden, Nebraska, Greg had spent plenty of time on the family farm learning about the ranching business, and how feed affected the cows both health-wise and profit-wise. After speaking to a tub company, Greg decided to get started, and set up his own business.
Alliance, Nebraska was the site chosen for the first Vitalix manufacturing plant. Operations there started in 1989 and ended when a fire leveled the plant to the ground in 2018, just one year short of 30 years in one place.
