“Making people and their animals healthier” is more than just our core focus at Uckele Health & Nutrition; it’s our passion. That’s why we’ve committed ourselves to the science of nutritional health for over 50 years, formulating, customizing and manufacturing the highest quality nutritional products on the market. That’s our highest priority.
In 1962, Uckele Animal Health Distributing, Inc. was founded by William Uckele Sr. to help farmers in southeast Michigan feed their livestock better. That beginning sparked a passion among future generations of the Uckele family for applying scientifically proven nutritional principles in practical ways to improve the lives of animals and humans alike. Still family owned and privately held, Uckele Health & Nutrition, Inc. is able to pursue its passion for helping others achieve optimal health through nutrition across the world, without compromising for the kind of short-term goals that corporations must pursue to keep investors happy.
Uckele’s team of experts oversees every aspect of the end product using proven advances in science to research, formulate and manufacture quality supplements while meeting the highest standards for ingredients, formulas and customer service. Uckele’s daily operations take place on two campuses, in three GMP-compliant manufacturing facilities. We continually invest in the latest technology and equipment to produce supplements in a broad range of forms, from capsules to tablets, liquids, powders, soft gels, chewables, sublinguals, pellets, pastes and meal replacements. Additionally, Uckele has a manufacturing facility strictly for topical products, such as liniments, salves, creams, liquids or gels.
We proudly manufacture all products using FDA compliant procedures. Uckele is a founding member of the National Animal Supplement Council (NASC), undergoing rigorous audits each year. The company has achieved Good Manufacturing Practices (GMP) Registration through NSF International’s Dietary Supplement Certification program, which also requires annual audits.
For the past 7 consecutive years, Uckele has been on the Inc. 500/5000 Listing of the Fastest Growing Companies in America, was recognized by the Edward Lowe Foundation’s 2013 “50 Companies to Watch,” was a finalist for Ernst & Young’s 2012 prestigious Entrepreneur of the Year Award, was the recipient of the 2011 Michigan Small Business Person of the Year, received the 2009 Better Business Bureau Torch Award for Marketplace Ethics for NW Ohio and SE Michigan, and was the 2008 Winner of the Entrepreneurial Excellence Award.
