May 15, 2019 – York, Pennsylvania: Wolfgang Confectioners is proud to announce that they have received the Supplier of the Year Award from The Hershey Company.
The Supplier of the Year is chosen by a cross-functional Hershey team to recognize the best supplier that delivered with excellence across all four of Hershey’s global procurement categories: continuous improvement and productivity, innovation, sustainability, and operational excellence.
In 2018, Wolfgang Confectioners excelled and supported Hershey in the following manner: maintained impeccable safety and quality, operated with a philosophy of winning and collaboration, executed excellence in launching a new item, was willing to invest capital and demonstrated constant evolution of process capabilities and people investment.
Wolfgang Confectioners helped Hershey launch a new product line by installing two new lines from a previously untried equipment manufacturer. Within 6 months of the project sign-off, Wolfgang took immediate action to convert their warehouse into the necessary food grade production space for the lines with a nearly flawless start-up, reaching 100% attainment in the first week.
“This new product launch has truly been a team collaboration between Hershey and Wolfgang. Both companies were committed to the success of the launch from the very beginning and it has been rewarding to see all the pieces come together for the success of our customer and their consumers.” – Sam Miller, President, Wolfgang Confectioners
