Spangler Candy was founded by Arthur G. Spangler in August 1906 as the Spangler Manufacturing Company. It’s headquartered in Bryan, Ohio, a town of about 10,000 in northwestern Ohio. Spangler is a privately-held U.S. confectionery manufacturer. It employs about 400 in the U.S. and 190 in a co-manufacturing facility in Juarez, Mexico. Ten million Dum Dums are manufactured each day. Now that’s a lot of Dum Dums!
