Family Controlled & Professionally Managed For Over 80 Years

With company roots going back to 1864, Thomas Mellon Evans acquired the H.K. Porter Company in 1939. Evans, an American financier, was one of the country’s early corporate raiders and continued to acquire businesses to diversify and transition into a holding company for a broad range of subsidiaries.

In 1989, HBD Industries Inc. was established acquiring business and assets from the H.K. Porter Company. Evans continued to build the portfolio acquiring industrial companies expanding its presence in power transmission, aerospace and electrification products.

Today, HBD remains family owned with a professional board of directors. HBD has transitioned into an integrated operating company partnering with management teams to grow and build winning engineered product businesses in the industrial sector.
