Power Health began life back in 1972 when the current chairman Mike McIver left his job as a health store manager and set up on his own as a supplier and distributor of health food supplements, working from the family home in Yorkshire. Despite the demands of a young family, the business flourished and moved to dedicated premises within the Yorkshire town of Pocklington, near York. With the acquisition of a number of familiar natural health brands, the company thrived and moved on to manufacture a range of it's own health food supplements, requiring a further move to a purpose built facility close to the nearby airfield. During this time, Mike's wife Clare played a key role in the development of the company and as their four children grew up, they too steadily became more and more involved and now hold prominent positions. Daughter Vicky became Managing Director in 1999 with Dad Mike still maintaining an active interest as Chairman.
