Headquartered in Charleston, South Carolina, Hindon manufactures and distributes engineered products used in a wide range of applications and industries. Hindon built its reputation representing Invicta Vibrators in the U.S. and, over time, expanded its expertise and product offering to include industrial fail-safe brakes, electrohydraulic thrusters, and rotary discharge feeders.
Husband and wife entrepreneurs Mike and Loretta Nickel founded the company in 1983 when they discovered the value they could provide the industrial marketplace by specializing in niche, highly technical, products. This tradition of focusing on providing niche industrial products that require a deep understanding of each product’s technical aspects and the applications in which they are used has always been core to Hindon’s identity.
In 1987, Loretta’s son, Eric Schulz, joined Hindon as the industrial vibrator salesperson and oversaw the growth of Invicta Vibrators in the U.S. He became company President in 1993 when his stepfather became unexpectedly ill.
Bradley Hunt joined Hindon in 1995 and was also instrumental in further developing Hindon’s robust consultative engineering approach. To recognize his leadership efforts and product design achievements, Brad was made an equity owner.
After running Hindon for over two decades, Eric began to consider how best to transition the company to ensure its long-term success. In 2019, the owners capitalized on the opportunity to transition ownership and leadership of the company to Noah Krimm, who shared their and the family’s passion for industry, manufacturing, and entrepreneurship.
Today, Hindon maintains its over 35-year commitment to delivering the right product solutions engineered to the unique requirements of our customers’ industrial applications and supporting our products and the people who depend on them however we can.
We look forward to working with you.
