Ventura's Hammerhead Industries: Another small manufacturer doing great CA thingsPosted by Gino DiCaro, VP, Communications on Feb. 26, 2018
We're introducing a new feature to the Champions blog. We have partnered with CompanyWeek (CW) California to share information on the state's premier small to mid size manufacturers. CW's featured companies are part of CMTA's Champions recognition program, intended to boost the image of California manufacturing and convince policymakers that manufacturing is the single best way to grow California’s economy and create high quality jobs.
These companies are committed to California and exemplify the high principles of economic growth, innovation, entrepreneurship, and commitment to their employees. Together the CMTA Champions program and CW's many profiles will demonstrate how California manufacturers make a positive impact on their industry sector, their employees and their communities.
This week CW California brings you Hammerhead Industries, a Ventura-based company created by two engineers turned entrepreneurs from General Motors. They founded the company in 1995, which focuses on retractable gear products, and have grown to 23 employees. Their determination and grit show how a small manufacturer can meet the custom demands of 21st Century markets and compete in a global economy.
They have tremendous opportunities before them, including in the industrial safety industry, but their business environment challlenges remind us that California policies must always consider the impacts on our state's prized manufacturers' abillity to invest and grow.
