Inside Our Indiana Facility

In operation since 1997, the Valparaiso, Indiana, executive team credits its reputation and success to creative, outside the box thinking.

Smaller than many of the other UGN plants, Valparaiso still manages to consistently match or better the sales numbers of the other, larger facilities.

Team members are universally valued—from the production floor to the corner office—and everyone contributes to the culture of helping. Team members and their families are a number one priority in Valparaiso, and special attention is paid to health and safety issues and ensuring a good work life balance is achieved.

The team members at Valparaiso don’t just want to perform well. They don’t just want to become the best plant in UGN. Because for them, it’s about more than results.

It’s about what you do, what you give back to your community, how you treat the people around you, and how you work to achieve those results.

They want to leave a legacy behind, a legacy all future UGN team members will aspire to emulate.

UGN has a strong, corporate wide focus on giving back to the community, and as such the team members at the Valparaiso, Indiana facility are proud supporters of The Food Bank of Northwest Indiana. The Food Bank of Northwest Indiana has been leading the Region’s fight against hunger since 1982 and distributes more than 4.3 million meals each year to hungry kids, adults and seniors across Lake and Porter counties. Each month the Food Bank serves more than 23,000 individuals through its 100+ partner agencies.

The Valparaiso facility has won numerous awards over the years, including the Toyota Certificate of Achievement—Quality Performance, the Subaru Quality Achievement Award, Nissan Zero Defect Award, and the Honda Quality Performance Award.
