George D Utley II in the Utleys shop, 1908
In 1945, Utley's Incorporated was founded by the late George D. Utley II in the basement of his mother's house in Queens, New York. This fledgling business was focused on the cosmetic and liquor industry with its founder designing and creating bottle shapes which were then sold to the early industry leaders in these fields.
Utleys has earned the reputation of being one of the preeminent leaders in its field. Currently, the firm is owned & managed by the founder's two sons, George D. Utley III, President and John Utley, Vice President.
