In Memory of Ryan Crocker


We lost our friend and colleague, Ryan Crocker, on Saturday, September 10, 2022.


We will all miss him more than words can express, and know many of
our customers will feel the same. He was not just our co-worker,
but our good friend, and someone who truly cared about everyone he knew.

“We have been a client of HPS for over 20 years. During this period we’ve always found the product to be of the highest quality and in some cases better than the new product from the manufacturer. The staff are always pleasant and extremely helpful with an abundance of technical knowledge. I would recommend this company to any potential clients.”

The quality of their parts and remanufactured units are a step above the rest. HPS knows customer service and I know they make every effort to meet our needs!”
