7/2/1960 - 11/6/2016
On Sunday, November 6th 2016, Hatec lost a valued colleague and friend, Ron Vines. Ron started with Hatec on March 15th, 2002, and pursued a career in those 14 years that has become an inspiration to us all.
“Ron’s product knowledge, customer relations and business savvy was a tremendous driving force in the success of Hatec from the very first day he joined us and he was a mentor to most of us at any given time. Ron was the expert in the metric fluid connector business and the “go to” man to a ton (if not to most) of hose and fittings distributors across the USA and equally adept at obtaining/maintaining large OEM business. His feats truly made him a pioneer in our industry.” - Joey Hermes, Hatec’s past president
Our hearts go out to his wife and children in this time of mourning, as well as to the many colleague’s he had a Hatec who knew him well enough to call him a friend.
