Heyward Hawkins, Sr. founded Hawkins & Associates in 1974.
While the company initially sold pipe, valves and fittings as well as water treatment equipment, the company expanded product offerings in 1986 to include LMI pumps and accessories. Hawkins & Associates continues to grow, priding itself on the expansive array of products it offers its customers.
Mr. Hawkins ran the company until his passing in 1991, when Heyward A. “Buddy” Hawkins, Jr. assumed the role of President / CEO. Buddy’s innovative thinking changed how the company operated, taking it from a commission based rep agency to a stocking distributor.
