Robert Tyrrell Joins Litehouse
Litehouse Inc., Sandpoint, Idaho, has hired Robert (Rob) Tyrrell as the vp manufacturing. He will oversee the operations of five food manufacturing facilities in multiple states to support the company’s fast-paced growth in the dressings, dips, sauces, cheese and herb categories.
Tyrell is a 25-year industry veteran who most recently worked for The Hain Celestial Group, holding key manufacturing and operations positions.
More than 50 years ago Litehouse started in the Hope, Idaho, restaurant of the Hawkins family. Since that time, it has become the leader in refrigerated salad dressings, dips, sauces, herbs, and cheese, manufacturing products at its three U.S. facilities based in Michigan, Utah and Idaho. The company is now 100 percent employee-owned.
In the past two years, Litehouse has nearly doubled the size of its manufacturing operations, and invested more than $30 million on facilities, equipment and innovations to meet increased consumer demand.
