Join us in welcoming Big R stores in Oregon as our newest retailer. You can find our GC-30G, GC-20R and our FST-15 Fuel stations at their 3 locations in the upper NorthWest.
HMC is proud to see one of our GC-20R Gas Caddy's headed to Camp Seymour in Gig Harbor, Washington. Camp Seymour's mission is to put Christiian principles into practice through programs that build healthy spirit, mind and body for all. That sounds like a great Mission Statement to us at HMC Industries! Donations to Camp Seymour can be made here. _
The Hitch Man in Maryland and Pennsylvania
HMC is proud to introduce our latest stocking dealer, The Hitch Man. They have 3 stores in Maryland and Pennsylvania. They offer everything you need for you hitch, trailer, and snow plow. They currently have our FST-15 Fuel Station and our GC-20R Gas Caddy's in stock.
One of the nice things about doing business with HMC is the consistency we offer in our product line. While our competitors rush out new products, we fully test in house and have a group of close customers who demo new items for quality and ease of use. In the last two years, one of HMC's competitors in the gas caddy market has offered 3 different models of pumps. At first they had a standard 2 vane pump that felt like sand paper when you rotated it. After publishing testimonials from customers about how much better it was over the traditional aluminum cast pump, they then moved to offering a three vane pump. Well, it appears they have given up on both their standard and professional and now offer yet another pump. Meanwhile, HMC has been building their Aluminum Cast, 3 Vane PPS pump for over 3 years now....and it's the a similar design as was built under Marshalltown Pump, Western Mfg. Pump, and Handy Industries LLC Pump....the design has been proven since the early 70's....that's a pretty good testament. We buy our castings locally and machine them in house. The vanes and rotors come from an American company in Mississippi and are also machined in house. Finally we assemble the pump complete in house...keeping a close eye on tolerances and quality construction. The best thing about consistency is that when you need that pump rebuilt, we can do it, because we are still building them new today.
Today was a fun day. We received a nice order from one of our best dealers to ship 4 GC-30R units to the Statue of Liberty. We have shipped to the Park Service before, but this is the first time the order was specific for such a prestigious park. We hope they perform flawlessly in whatever means they will be used. We are proud to have provided equipment to our Federal employees who maintain such historic areas. Thank you to the civil servants of America for your hard work and dedication.
We also would like to say a HUGE thank you to a county in the State of Maryland for their recent purchase of several GC-30 series units. We hope they help the district maintain and service the grounds equipment with efficiency and safely. It is a wonderful idea to use the HMC product line to store and service school district ground equipment. A GC-Series product promotes safety and allows users a chance to monitor fuel use.
The other day the front office was a buzz with an order that came in through Northern Tool. Ship to the FBI. Now, I'm sure they probably needed our product for some ordain use like facility management...but you know how people's imagination works....there were thoughts like; "I wonder if it will be used to power some super secret spy equipment" or one shop guy said, "I bet they will use it to fill their flame thrower"! LOL.... Anyway, you just never know who might need an HMC Gas Caddy. They have so many different uses and come in handy in so many ways....but we are always excited to sell one to someone who pushes our imagination!
Manheim is the largest vehicle wholesaler in the world. When Manheim's corporate location in Atlanta, Georgia was having trouble with their China built gas caddy's...they turned to HMC Industries. The quality of workmanship and HMC's commitment to provide personal customer service was a huge factor in their decision to change suppliers.
Every week Manheim in Atlanta uses HMC's Gas Caddy to keep over 20 auction lanes up and running. They needed a supplier they could depend on and they came to HMC!
At HMC, we are always trying to find ways to make sure our customers are aware of our new business and products. After Handy Industries closed, we took on this little venture as we saw the need to continue a nice American made product. We are now into our 2nd year of business and while there have been hills and valleys, we continue to work towards providing the best built, quality gas caddy's and parts customers can count on. This fall we will release our new line of lift equipment and oil transfer tanks.
This blog was created to give continuous updates on the services and types of customers we hear from everyday.
For instance, in Chicago, we have a young entrepreneur who has purchased several of our GC-30B's to collect used cooking oil. His business uses the portability of our tanks to collect cooking oil from household consumers and local restaurants. His clients are happy to find someone to accept the by-product while he is happy to make some money selling the recycled oil...which then gets used in women's make-up, plastic bottles, and all kind of other household items! The HMC GC-30B is the perfect system for oil recycling!
