Posted by H&P Blog on Wed, Sep 30, 2015 @ 09:00 AM

Manufacturing Day is the first Friday in October, and is a national showcase for the importance of manufacturing in the U.S. economy, giving American manufacturers the opportunity to show their products to the world.  Americans continue to create new products and unlock new technologies that grow the economy, so Manufacturing Day celebrates those who proudly stand behind their goods and services, helping to revitalize American manufacturing.  This will inspire young people to pursue careers in manufacturing and engineering, because today’s science, technology, engineering and math graduates will power the next chapter of American production and innovation.  In 2015, the event will be celebrated on Friday, October 2, and Heyl & Patterson is proud to recognize our place and our brethren in the manufacturing industry.

Heyl & Patterson Blog Celebrates Five Years

Posted by H&P Blog on Wed, Jun 17, 2015 @ 09:44 AM

The word "blog" is short for "web log," and is a website with posts providing commentary on a particular subject, much like a newspaper editorial column.  Blogging grew out of the burgeoning digital communities of the 1980s, which included Usenet, CompuServe and Bulletin Board Systems (BBS), and featured running commentary about various topics.  Early versions were a form of web diary that kept an intimate account of the authors' personal lives, and these ultimately evolved into the distinct class of online publishing we know today.  According to the web platform Technorati, there are now over 2.7 million blog posts published each day, and other recent statistics show that there are over 172 million Tumblr blogs and 75.8 million WordPress blogs in existence.

Posted by H&P Blog on Wed, Jul 11, 2012 @ 09:23 AM

The change in ownership from one company to another is a seminal event for both businesses, and in the lives of the individual owners.  Acquisitions are often made as part of a company's growth strategy, when it is more beneficial to take over an existing firm's operations, strengths and niche rather than expand its own.  In 1985, the opportunity arose for Heyl & Patterson to acquire Edward Renneburg & Sons Co. of Baltimore, MD.  This move became the basis for Heyl & Patterson’s Renneburg Division as it exists today.
