Happy New Year!

It's that most wonderful time of the year to reflect where we have been, and where we are going next year.

2018 was a record year for HPA.

  • Overall Sales goal met each month
  • Record sales achieved, a 20% increase over 2017
  • Shipped weight increased by 10%
  • Shipped items increased by 7%
  • Average sale dropped by 9%

2018 Changes made

  • Point system on attendance implemented
  • 2X Baseball with the Kokomo Jackrabbits
  • Introduced a 401K corporate match
  • Added a salesperson
  • Added several machines to our capability - two rolling mills, and a peeler 
    Cold Rolling
    Hot Rolling
  • Football - a Colts day for employees and family
  • Adding a new Hi-Def Plasma to our capacity
  • Added Fun Friday to celebrate with our employees
  • Charity - our DO GOOD FEEL GOOD campaign yielded over 2200 lbs of food donated for the local community.
  • Charity - our first decorated tree was donated to We Care, themed 'Seas and Greetings' raising $2000 at auction!
  • For the first time in almost a decade, we were able to use the company profit sharing.

2018 was a year of change - lots of changes occured. In terms of changes of direction for 2019, this is a good place to be - so making big changes is probably not warranted from the above information.

  1. Record sales means we will have to work harder to achieve another milestone.
    Monthly sales goal needs revised
  2. More teamwork and recognition of individual contribution.
  3. There is always room for improvement - but we are listening & making changes.
