Under his leadership, sales and profits have consistently increased for those operations, a result of Huffman’s emphasis on organizational excellence, plant efficiency, a streamlined supply chain and unwavering dedication to quality products.
As current president of the Warrell Corp., a company involved in both contract manufacturing and specialty distribution businesses, Huffman has applied those same principals to fuel growth. He has overseen significant growth in contract manufacturing by attracting several Fortune 100 companies. As a result, the company has invested in the installation of several new manufacturing lines.
Actively involved in the American Association of Candy Technologists (AACT), Huffman served as the organization’s president from 1984-1986. He currently chairs the Stroud Jordan Award Committee for the AACT.
Huffman also serves on the National Confectioners Association (NCA)’s board of trustees and received the Distinguished Service Award in 2010. He continues to be active in the Pennsylvania Manufacturers Confectioners Association, spearheading the Long Range Planning Committee as chairman and sitting on its board of directors.
When not thoroughly immersed in the confectionery industry, Huffman enjoys working with social service agencies and economic development associations as well as engaging in business-to-business activities. Huffman earned his Master’s of Science in inorganic chemistry from Illinois State University.
