H&K Celebrates 50th Anniversary with Official Plaque Dedication

Skippack, PA- On Tuesday, May 1st 2018, The H&K Group’s (H&K’S) Board of Directors, Founding Partners and Third Generation family members gathered at the corporation’s Skippack, PA headquarters to celebrate 50 years of continuous business operations at H&K and formally dedicate two Anniversary plaques.

On this special Tuesday morning, corporate leadership paused for a moment to reflect on H&K’s accomplishments and accept two handmade plaques that have since been permanently installed at H&K’s Skippack location. Designed to signify the corporation’s “Golden Milestone,” the circular plaque motif arose from H&K’s 50th Anniversary brand. A collaborative effort between the corporation’s Third Generation leadership and H&K’s PR/Marketing Office, the brand was unveiled earlier in 2018. Consisting of two unique designs, these one-of-a-kind plaques were created in-house through locally sourced craftsmen. Their dual talents merged to develop works of art that represent not only who we are at H&K, but what we all have the potential to become. The plaques are located in both the lobby area and Boardroom at our Skippack headquarters. The lobby plaque features laser-cut ¼’ thick polished brass that is offset by a hand-crafted oak backer board. The second Boardroom installation is finished in similar precision laser-cut lettering ¼’ steel plate, and has also been precision mounted to a circular tablet of 2’ thick argillite stone.  The argillite was hand-selected from H&K’s first quarry facility, H&K Materials in Chalfont, PA. In addition, this particular plaque shows similar characteristics to those integral to H&K though the purposeful weathering of the plaque to stimulate durability, integrity, and strength; all hallmarks of the H&K brand. Given the installation’s weight, this Boardroom piece has been suspended on a specialized steel bracket specifically engineered for the installation.

Presentation of these unique 50th Anniversary Commemorative plaques could not have been possible without the input, hard work and assistance from the following: the entire Third Generation family team, Axis Visual, Shoemaker Welding & Machine Shop, Inc., Pinnacle Stone Products, Skippack Welding Repair & Service, H&K Group, Inc.’s Purchasing & Carpentry Teams and Austin Graphics.
This note of gratitude would also not be complete without a deep and heartfelt “Thank You” to both our First & Second Generation Owners, who have tirelessly and skillfully guided the corporation to this milestone moment that marks half a century of operations.
