SANFORD, FL February 2022 ―
Hernon Manufacturing, Inc.® is proud to announce its 44th anniversary today, February 15th. Since incorporating in Queens, New York in 1978 the company has grown and expanded multiple times with the addition of an equipment division, a move to Sanford, Florida, and a massive building expansion. Hernon now offers more than 5000 unique adhesive formulas and dozens of precision dispensing machines to offer customers a total solution that can be integrated into their manufacturing operations and prompting their new signature slogan of “Formulating Solutions.”
Hernon is a true American success story. The founders, Harry and Josef Arnon, emigrated to America from Israel and started the company in a basement in the late 70s. Through their hard work and ingenuity, Hernon now exports to more than 60 nations around the world, having won the presidential “E” award for exports, and is a world leader in technical processes for applying UV curable sealant to oil shaft seals as well as applying and curing sealant on ammunition.
“The 44-year anniversary is surprisingly fitting since Hernon is projected to grow about 44 percent in sales this year,” stated Harry Arnon, noting that much of Hernon’s sales come from their international divisions. “We have distributors around the world that allow us to service most major manufacturing centers with local representation,” he explained. And it is not just in sales and exports that Hernon is expanding, they continue to add to their product line with new three- and four-dimension gantry-style dispensing robots, a variety of Progressive Cavity Pumps (PCP), and a new thermally conductive paste with higher conductivity rates.
Hernon is remarkable, not only has the business survived the COVID pandemic but it has continued to grow throughout industrial closures, supply chain issues, and travel restrictions. The sales growth figures are only the latest in a line of financial successes for the company evidenced by the recent addition of local country managers in both Mexico and China. With 44 years of established business history and fueled by several years of double-digit sales growth, this company is gaining momentum and is a company to watch going forward.
