Design Focused on the Consumer

As a customer-focused operation, we seek to put the consumer’s needs first by creating high-quality products that last, and offering exceptional service along the way. At their core, our products are designed to make life easier.

Our Capabilities

Plastics in Production

Our Chicago plant manufactures a wide range of plastic-based consumer products, utilizing fully automated plastic injection molding presses fed by their own rail spur.

Cold Rolled Steel

While other corporations are abandoning American manufacturing, we’re the ONLY domestic manufacturer of steel ironing boards, creating jobs here in the Midwest in Seymour, Indiana.

Product Development Process

HPI has a long history of creating quality products that meet strict standards. We work with our customers to deliver innovative conceptual designs that are manufactured at the speed and volume the market demands.

Living an EcoLife

Through education, awareness and action, HPI is actively taking steps to become a greener company. We work proactively to reduce our carbon footprint by recycling scrap in our facilities and by using more energy-efficient equipment.
