As we head into fall on Saturday, we wanted to take a moment to reflect on the awesomely busy summer we've had here at H&S. We've had numerous INTMA Events, our company Indianapolis Indians game, several golf outings (as both sponsors and attendees), the Indiana Manufacturing Suppliers Expo, the Governor's Century and Half-Century Awards, and the Lineman Rodeo! It may not sound like a lot, but the preparation and execution of each of these events was no small feat. Below, you can find collages and further info on a few of these events.

In case you missed it, we posted Episode #3 of our 50th Anniversary Vlog Series back in December. In this episode, we interviewed Kevin Burnett, our Executive Vice President, who started our Fort Wayne branch back in 1981 and still oversees it today. We serve many industries from our Fort Wayne location, but this branch has become a key partner to the flourishing medical manufacturing market of northern Indiana. Kevin shares some insights on how we came to be in Fort Wayne along with why we are so successful in the northern Indiana industrial and MRO supply market.
Herb Haggard, my father, as the founder of Haggard & Stocking has taken the company from very humble beginnings to an internationally known company. At its start, Haggard & Stocking was part rep agency and small time-limited stocking distributor with a customer base solely in central Indiana. I can tell you he often spent hours working through the day and then spending several hours working in his home office in his basement during nights and weekends. Haggard & Stocking has long been like another child to my father as he has watched it take shape to what it is today. His passion is contagious, and I have been very honored to follow in his footsteps into the world of Industrial Distribution. I remember being proud to come into the office as a young child and help where he “needed me.” I spent several weekend days putting stickers on catalogs and believing that was going to make a huge difference in my father’s sales efforts.
