OPERATIONS
Utz Brands, Inc.
The operations team's can-do attitude
provides the foundation for the future as
Utz Brands celebrates its centennial.
by Dan Malovany
U
Utz Brands is the youngest 100-year-old company in the nation. Its storied
history also tells the tale of two snack manufacturing businesses that have
succeeded over the years in two different but complementary ways.
Founded in 1921 by William (Bill) and Salie Utz - who believed they
could make better potato chips in a simple, farm-fresh way - the Hanover,
Pa., snack maker expanded organically over its first 90 years, becoming a
well-respected brand nationally. Since 2010, however, Utz has made 16 acquisitions,
making it one of the fastest-growing snack operators with more
than $1.1 billion in annual sales.
Moreover, last year the company began a new phase, publicly trading on
the New York Stock Exchange under the symbol " UTZ " and officially becoming
known as Utz Brands, Inc.
From a manufacturing perspective, Tucker Lawrence, executive vice
president and chief supply chain officer, has been through it all. When he
joined Utz 17 years ago, the then family-owned business had just built its
fourth snack food facility in Hanover. Today, the public company has about
3,300 associates, many of whom work in 15 plants located in Pennsylvania,
Alabama, Arizona, Illinois, Indiana, Louisiana, Massachusetts, Michigan
and Washington.
Each week, those plants produce more than 5.5 million lbs of potato
chips, pretzels, cheese snacks, tortilla chips, party mixes, pork rinds, veggie
snacks and more. These items are sold nationally under a battalion of
" power " brands that include Utz, On The Border chips and dips, Good
Health, Boulder Canyon, Hawaiian Brand and Zapp's, to name a few. The
company also offers several smaller " foundation " brands such as Vitner's
and Tim's Cascade Snacks that are regional favorites with a loyal following
all their own.
" If you look at Utz over the past 100 years, the last 10 years have been
transformational through our acquisitions along with our growth with new
brands and production facilities, " Mr. Lawrence explained. " The other part
of our history is our growth internally, helped by our productivity and manufacturing
execution systems, equipment and technology advancements,
and of course, our talented and dedicated associates across the entire supply
chain. "
