People ask me all the time, how did you come up with the name HalenHardy?
Well, it all started when I was a young boy…
The story goes something like this…
I had a few role models that I always looked up to, my dad Don Beaver Sr. and both of my grandfathers, Pete Beaver & Tom Lee. Together they taught me to love God’s great outdoors and to honor hard work combined with a great attitude.
My Pappy Tom lived just a couple blocks from our home and I had the honor to work and play at his side nearly every day. He had a pretty straightforward outlook on life: work hard first…then play hard. When the chores were done (helping him in the garden, shop or Grandma’s ceramic studio), we’d take off in his ’61 Rambler Classic to fish at Tipton Run or Bald Eagle Creek. Oh, the memories we made.
Pap would always encourage me to smile while working. He’d say, “I love a hale and hardy boy.” Hale: meaning cheerful and useful. Hardy: meaning robust & tenacious.
Long after Pap passed in the early 1970s, I’d often be inspired by the memory of his “hale and hardy” instructions.
Little did I know, those words would carry me through all of my endeavors, personally and professionally.
Pappy’s words were now ingrained in my adult life. I expanded my college enterprise, Beaver Professional Services to include heavy-duty industrial and hazardous dust clean-up in North America and Japan. In 1984, I invented and patented the Pig brand absorbent sock.
And in 1985, I spearheaded the invention of the original patented PigⓇ brand absorbent sock and became Chairman & CEO of New Pig CorporationⓇ. During that time, our two sons, Josh & Troy, were born and a few years ago I joined them as partners in HalenHardy.
In 2013, my sons, Josh and Troy, along with my partner Carl Cohen were looking for a name for our new venture—developing products and services to improve environmental, health and safety practices for heavy mobile industries. We racked our brains, but nothing felt right.
One night I was thinking about the name when Pap’s favorite phrase came back to me. I hopped up and scribbled the phrase “Hale n Hardy” on a notepad I keep near my bed. When I woke in the morning, the name for our company was clear….HalenHardy.
