Haward Corporation, founded in 1947, has always specialized in the areas of metal finishing that are more interesting, and more modern. In 1947, we installed the first shop in the East for electropolishing of stainless steel. In 1954, we added the application of solid film lubricants under an exclusive license. Looking ahead in 1979 at the encroachment of environmental regulations, we decided to install powder coating. Powder coating is, of course, the most environmentally sound finishing process today, with no hazardous effluent to air, water or ground.
Haward Corporation has always been close to the cutting edge of technology. In each of the processes that we perform, it has been company policy to be the largest in capability and flexibility, to be the leader rather than the follower.
Our electropolishing operation consists of more than a half-dozen working tanks holding over 9000 gallons of solution, and have the capabilities of fabricating custom tanks, for those special jobs, as large as 30 feet long. In 1980, we started sending a team on location to electropolish large reactor vessels and tanks that are too large to process in our shop. We are one of only three companies that we know of, doing this type of work.
"Generally, if Haward can't do it, nobody can!"
The biggest problem experienced by so many companies in the metal finishing industry has been, and will continue to be, pollution control. By observing due diligence and environmental responsibility, Haward has been in continued compliance since 1980. We have kept up with, and have gone beyond, every requirement, and planning is in place for the next decade.
Haward's main building is 35,000 square feet, with two drive-in doors and six loading docks.
Haward is a strong, sound company and is predominant in its field. We have presently over 500 active customers, and employ 35 people. The loss of any one customer cannot precipitate the disaster experienced by many small companies with too few eggs in the basket.
Haward Corporation is located close to the New Jersey Turnpike, Interstates 80, 280 & 287, Garden State Parkway, Routes 3, 17, 21, Newark Airport, and Port Newark.
