Hickman, Williams & Company was founded in 1890 in Louisville, Kentucky as a partnership to provide raw materials to the foundry industry. Richard B. Hickman and Harry L. Williams started their business with “two desks, two bicycles and a typewriter.”
Today, Hickman, Williams & Company is a major sales and service organization, marketing ferroalloys, carbon additives, pig iron, coke and other related products. Although the number and type of products we provide has changed through the years, one thing hasn’t – the entrepreneurial spirit of our employee-owners who carry on the Hickman, Williams & Company legacy of integrity, knowledge, quality and service.”
Hickman, Williams & Company is the premier supplier of a broad range of products and services to the foundry and steel industries. Our own manufacturing operations include processing, screening and packaging carbons and ferroalloys as well as producing ferroalloy briquettes. Alliances with important principal supplier companies provide us with a complete line of materials for the industries we serve.
Our customers are served from nine offices and sales locations in North America. Additionally, materials are stored in strategically located warehouses throughout North America to assure availability and prompt shipment.
Our experienced Technical Support Group assists customers in the use of foundry alloys, particularly in the areas of inoculation and ductile iron treatment. Our foundry metallurgists work with customers to solve production problems, improve productivity and reduce costs.
A management ISO team has established an ISO9001:2008 compliant system for all company locations. An audit team conducts regular audits of all locations to ensure compliance.
New products and techniques are required to keep both the principal and the customer competitive in today’s global economy. Because of Hickman, Williams & Company’s broad coverage, our sales engineers are often able to apply solutions from one industry to problems in another; or they can meld the capabilities of two separate producers to create a solution that would not otherwise be found. This sort of innovation and dedication has been key to our success since 1890, and will remain a cornerstone for the future. In 2015, the company celebrates our 125th year in business.
