Hawk Technology

"I began working with Hawk as a supplier when we were closing our factory. With this closing, I was left with one disaster after the next. At the last minute, we asked Hawk to complete the build of two machines that were started by engineers at another plant. Throughout the build phase, they discovered several design issues that we worked through to improve the machines. They did not hesitate to take on the challenge and supported us in our time of need. I was able to work one on one with their design engineers on several of the changes. They worked weekends and many long hours to complete the machines in a timely manner. Thanks to Hawk, we were able to get back on our feet. Once the machines were installed, they continued to help make improvements and tooling for us."
