Best of State Winner for 2016

Nitro-Pak VOTED the Best Preparedness Food

And Supply Company AGAIN for 2016!

HEBER CITY, UT– On April 10th, 2016, the “Utah Best of State Committee” announced this year’s Best of State Award Winners in over 200 different business categories. This year’s winner for the Preparedness Food and Supplies category, Nitro-Pak Preparedness Center Inc., was once again voted #1 again for the fifth time to receive this coveted award.

To be honored even once for this prestigious award is a high honor. To win it now for the fifth time, four times more than any other competitor says volume’s about Nitro-Pak. Their Founder and President Harry R Weyandt responded saying “Wow! I can’t believe that out of all preparedness companies we have here in Utah, that Nitro-Pak would once again be voted to receive this highly prestigious award. Our employees deserve all the credit for making this happen. I couldn’t be prouder of them!”

When one considers how many other emergency preparedness supply, food storage sellers and food storage canning & bucket food manufactures that are based here in Utah (it is estimated Utah has somewhere over 100 different companies in this industry) it is quite remarkable that since the Best of State organization first introduced the Preparedness Food & Supply category in 2011, Nitro-Pak was won this coveted award four straight years in a row!

Award winners will be recognized at the “Best of State Award’s Black-Tie Gala” banquet. It is humbling to be rubbing shoulders among the very best businesses in Utah. Some are mega billion dollar “Fortune 500” companies who were selected winners alongside many small businesses winners like Nitro-Pak. Each is recognized equally the same as exemplar examples as leaders in their respect fields.

When asked about receiving this award again for the fifth time, four times in a row, Mr. Weyandt enthusiastically responded, “After being in business now for over 30 years, I’m still excited to be in business! Every day I get to live the America Dream. Yes, “the dream” is still alive in America and my wonderful wife Vickie and I are living proof of that, but we did not get here alone. We recognize that no business ever rises to the top without exceptional and caring employees. These are our front line warrior’s. Our employees are the real winners of this award and we sincerely thank each of them.

In addition, we thank our loyal customers that have allowed us the opportunity to serve them and provide products that bring a little more peace-of-mind and security in their lives.
Lastly, but most importantly for Vickie and I, is to humbly thank and express our thanks to our Heavenly Father and His Son Jesus Christ for our chance to be here on earth to experience all we have. He has blessed us with five wonderful children that we are so very proud of along with their spouses and for our ten grandchildren whom we love and adore. These are our real treasures in this life.”

It is easy to see why this exceptional company continues to lead the field and chosen number one again.
