SNUGZ USA Announces Expansion Plans in West Jordan, UT

March 19, 2013. Salt Lake City based company; SnugZ USA Inc., has just broken ground on their newly acquired 10 acre plot in West Jordan City.  SnugZ USA currently operates out of 3 different manufacturing sites and will consolidate into one brand new state-of-the-art building with a foot print of approx. 120,000 square feet. The construction phase is scheduled to be complete in the winter of 2013.

“It is critical we think about the space we need when planning for the future,” said company CEO Brandon Mackay, “Having all three sites in one location not only improves our efficiency, but also gives us the opportunity to increase our production capacities and make it easier to continue our unique culture under one roof”.

Founded in 1989, SnugZ USA had its beginnings in a humble attic in Utah.   The company has grown from 5 to 330 employees and is recognized as an industry leader in the manufacturing of lanyards, eyewear retainers, health & beauty products and food gifts in the promotional products industry.

Holiday Video

We all took some time out of our busy schedules this holiday season to give back to the community. We took team pictures for our website and SnugZ provided us all with a jacket and lunch from one of our favorite local places, The Soup Kitchen.

We were able to provide blankets and other items needed to the The Rescue Mission, The Ronald McDonald House and The Family Promise.

We all enjoyed this activity and look forward to future projects where we can help out others in need.

Festive Food Fun

What do you think of first when the holiday season rolls around? Unless you’ve been holed up in a cave every November and December for the past 20 years, one of your first thoughts should be to make a bee line to the fridge, pantry, bakery, or wherever else you get your holiday foodie fix.

After all, why do you think New Year’s resolutions were invented? From the first slice of pumpkin pie on Thanksgiving, my stomach flips into holiday vacation mode with a five-week forwarding message going straight to my gut. It might not be the healthiest holiday tradition around, but it sure beats caroling or ice-skating (both of which I consider “scientifically proven” to be more hazardous to your health).

At SnugZ, we honor this holiday tradition and in the true spirit of the season, we’ve got everything you need to suffice the festive food fixation of you, your clients, or your business.

A colorful assortment of chocolate-covered goodies including Bridge Mix, pretzels, and candy will bring some holiday cheer to even the biggest Scrooge. Don’t forget our Delightful jellies and gummies either!

Baked goods are another holiday staple. With Tempting brownies and cookies like snickerdoodles (how could you not love something named “snickerdoodle”), you’ll be the hit of your promotional event, seasonal tradeshow, or company party.

Wash it all down with a Steamy cup of joe or hot cocoa and you’re guaranteed one merry little tummy.

So come on holidays, you throw the event and we’ll supply the goodies. Our SweetZ products are the best corporate stocking stuffers, thank you mints, and all around holiday treats out there.

Top Promotional Items for Events

When it comes to making an impression, sometimes you get just one shot. Especially when you are competing with dozens of other companies to get the attention of potential customers. Ya gotta make it count. So, where will you get your biggest bang? What will make people happy when they walk away? What will they proudly put around their neck, into their pocket, or smudge over their lips? Here are some great items to get your logo on someone:

1 – Lanyards: The newest item in “cool.” Take it from my son in high school, if you can hang it around your neck on a lanyard, you not only won’t lose it, you’ll look sweet! From cotton, cord, denim, and even bamboo, lanyards come in all styles.

2 – Mints: For girls and guys alike, pleasant breath is your friend. We’ve all been the one attacked by someone else’s bad breath, and sometimes just barely lived to tell the tale. Let’s get mints out there and save the world from oral stink!

3 – Lip Balm:  Dry, chapped lips. They not only hurt when you smile, but they seriously hurt your appearance. Lip balm is popular in the hot summer weather as well as the dry winter air. Let’s give soft, supple lips to the masses, not just pouty runway models.

4 – Headbands:  Fashion meets function. Not only do headbands look stylish, they serve a much needed purpose – they keep your hair out of your face! Headbands are especially useful for athletes or anyone who is active. These stretchy elastic bands are comfy to wear and allow you to represent your team or company with certain colors, logos, or names. Good-looking and comfortable to wear; what better way to keep your hair in place and stay stylish?

So, there you have it – the top four promotional items that are the both practical and trendy. Choose the right give-away and be confident that it will be well used and your company will be long-time remembered.
