As many of you are aware, HCI acquired MCDS in Modesto late last year. MCDS specializes in the design and manufacture of engineered wire harness solutions as well as the development of machine control systems for the mobile and agriculture industries. This strategic acquisition positions HCI to integrate complementary technologies, equipping us to offer complete machine control packages that enhance our fluid power solutions with graphical displays for user interface, wire harnesses for completing connections, and machine control programming.
Congratulations to Rick Solomon (Salt Lake City branch manager) and Eric Kinsel (Tulare branch manager), celebrating 40 years of service to HCI. Eric joined HCI in March of 1978, and though Rick officially joined HCI the same month, he had begun working for Mr. Cotter five months previous at HCI’s Utah branch, then called “Rocky Mountain Fluid Power”.
