Fifty years ago, William Uckele founded Uckele Animal Health Distributing, Inc. as a dealer supplying feed for livestock to provide an ancillary source of income for his large farming operation. Today, the corporation he founded is known worldwide as Uckele Health & Nutrition, Inc, and is led by his grandson, Michael Uckele, CEO. The company now manufactures product lines for horses, dogs and people under the Uckele name, as well as manufacture for over 100 contract/private label companies featuring thousands of innovative, proprietary formulas to address every nutritional need.
To celebrate Uckele's growth and success over the past 50 years, the company announces improved shipping rates, a new Uckele brand product launch and a fresh, new look for their logo. "My grandfather strongly believed in healthy living." says Mike Uckele, CEO. "He also deeply believed in treating the customer as he wanted to be treated. Fifty years later, the Uckele Team still believes these values to be true. And while proud of our heritage and many accomplishments leading to this important anniversary year, Uckele actively moves forward, working toward the vision of Optimal Health, Worldwide."
To recognize longtime, loyal customers in the fifty year celebration, Uckele will now offer improved shipping rates. All orders over $150 will ship free and rates will never be more than $9.95 flat rate on Uckele brand products. In addition, Uckele will offer 50 weekly product specials throughout the year.
The new Uckele logo reflects the company's rich history of quality and integrity and Uckele's future vision of optimal health worldwide through excellence, scientific innovation and service. The company name and traditional blue remain strong focal points, while hinting toward the future and Uckele's dedication to further developing their leading edge nutritional product lines. Uckele's 7/21 Detox Kit will launch for the human product line. This proprietary formula was developed to help the body with the enormoustask of cleansing the numerous toxins it is exposed to on a daily basis. The new equine U-Balance product line was developed to simplify the supplement program and target individual needs to take the guesswork out of which formulas will deliver the most effective, specific, streamlined support for each individual horse.
