Swanton High School Accounting students were invited to the Spangler Candies Corp. by CFO Bill Martin for a tour of the manufacturing operations.
Students were shown the process of the Dum Dum lollipop line and the candy cane line from a cost/efficiency perspective, and how the investments in certain technologies not only pay for themselves over time, they limit waste for a cleaner environment.
Spangler Candies is the leading producer of lollipops and candy canes in the country. Spangler’s produce 10 million Dum Dum’s per day, and export to 19 different countries.
Swanton Accounting is a program enrolled through Tech Prep of Northwest Ohio and The University of Toledo, and is funded through the Penta Career Center. Students are receiving college accounting credits through their high school course work.
