Hazleton important to Hershey manufacturing network

The Hershey name is one that’s known around the world. And many of the best-loved Hershey candy products are made in Hazleton, Pennsylvania, where The Hershey Company operates a food processing facility in Humboldt Industrial Park. The company is the largest chocolate producer in North America and is headquartered in Hershey, Pa., about 70 miles from Hazleton.

“Hazleton is an important part of our total U.S. manufacturing network. Our highly productive employees at Hazleton make some of our biggest brands and most popular products, helping us to continue to grow our business here in the United States, Canada and other parts of the world. It is a key part of our overall chocolate manufacturing capability and we are very proud of the great work and great products our employees at Hazleton make every day,” said Gene Tannler, senior director of manufacturing at The Hershey Company.

Products created at the Hazleton plant include Hershey’s Milk Chocolate, Kit Kat, Cadbury and Caramello, as well as a wide range of seasonal items and products for international markets. One of the most popular products made in Hazleton is snack-size Kit Kat bars. The local facility creates around 100 million pounds of chocolate each year, mainly for American and Canadian consumers.

Hershey’s Hazleton location opened in 1974 as a Cadbury facility and became a Hershey plant in 1988. Production at the plant has quadrupled since Hershey acquired it.

“The plant was attractive because of the great talent at the facility, the strong work ethic and productivity, access to a large pool of potential candidates for future positions, and a great location with convenient access to our customers, suppliers and other Hershey facilities through the local interstate highways,” Tannler said.

Tannler described the area as an excellent place to do business and said Hershey is able to draw from a strong pool of candidates whenever open positions are advertised. “Each time we look for new employees, the number of applicants exceeds what we need,” he said.
