On November 2nd, 2014, Hardened Power Systems experienced a fire that destroyed our entire facility. We lost the new (almost finished!) building, all the finished machines waiting to ship, and the manufacturing area including all of our components, raw materials, and in-process machines. We intend to rebuild our facility, honor our existing sales, rebuild our inventory, and grow this business. We hope to surpass the level we were at before the fire within a year.
Rebuilding and growing this business will depend on not only hard work, but financing for new facilities, fabrication tools, computers, and materials and components to assemble the products. In less than a week, we are making steady progress. The old building has been removed, leaving a huge, empty concrete slab ready for a new building. We are transferring operations to a much smaller fall-back building (Bill's garage, where the whole thing started), and we are building new benches and assembly stations.
Here is where you come in, we need your financial commitment to begin the process of rebuilding this business. We are determined to remain faithful to our commitment of quality, durability, and cost effectiveness. The process of rebuilding will take time and we are prepared for the journey ahead, but to expedite this process we need your support. In return we will make a promise to compensate you for your gift with limited editions of some of our gear to commemorate this event.
We hope that you will consider aiding in this process of rebuilding Hardened Power Systems.
