Litehouse expands Utah manufacturing facility

Litehouse, Inc. recently expanded its Hurricane, Utah manufacturing facility to keep up with the significant growth it has seen in recent years. A ribbon cutting ceremony was held on September 19th to celebrate the completion of the expansion.

Litehouse, which started in a small restaurant in Hope, Idaho, has grown into a company employing hundreds of local residents, with manufacturing facilities in Sandpoint, Idaho, Hurricane, Utah and Lowell, Michigan.

The expansion in Hurricane, Utah added 175,000 sq. ft. to the existing facility, tripling the square footage. This added space allows for increased production and revenue, with expansions to the building, cooler and landscaped areas. The Hurricane, Utah expansion is on top of the recent expansion Litehouse completed at its Sandpoint based manufacturing facility, which added 26,000 sq. ft. of additional space earlier this year.

“Whenever we expand our production capacity and invest in our business through equipment and facility expansion, it brings greater opportunity for us to serve our customers and ultimately continue growing our business,” said CEO and President Jim Frank. “Being a 100% Employee Owned Company, it’s a win for all of our employee owners in Idaho, Utah and Michigan who share in the company’s success.”

During the ribbon cutting ceremony, Litehouse executives also presented a $10,000 check to the Learning Center for Families, a local non-profit health, social service and school readiness agency. The Learning Center for Families currently serves over 800 vulnerable families in Hurricane, Utah and the surrounding areas.

Started by a local family, the business has become a nationwide household name and is now 100% employee owned. The brand has worked hard to stay true to its community roots, despite its international success and ranking as the No. 1 Refrigerated Salad Dressing brand in the United States1. One way they have done this is by giving back to the communities they serve, particularly the local community that nurtured the success of that fledgling small business in the 1960s: Sandpoint, Idaho.
