AloStar provided a $20 million commitment to Europa Sports Products, a sports nutrition distributor based in Charlotte, NC.

The company was recently formed out of the merger between two separate sports nutrition distribution companies, Charlotte-based Europa Sports Products and Lone Star Distribution from Dallas. The new company will represent hundreds of top-selling sports nutrition products from across the world and specializes in distribution to retailers, gyms, e-commerce outlets and more.

“Sports nutrition is a booming business,” said Andy McGhee, president and CEO of AloStar. “We are always looking to diversify and strengthen our loan portfolio, and Europa Sports Products offers a great opportunity for expansion in a growing segment.”
