Evans Manufacturing Co-Founder, President Alan Vaught Announces Retirement
Evans Manufacturing, Garden Grove, CA, announced the retirement of co-founder and president Alan Vaught. After an illustrious career spanning more than 30 years, Vaught has decided to step down from his role, effective June 30, 2023.
A true entrepreneur, Vaught had to sleep on the factory floor in the early days of Evans to make sure the injection-molding machines ran through the night. He and Evans have come a long way since.
During Vaught's tenure, Evans has earned an exceptional reputation, built a multi-award-winning customer service team, and expanded production across two bustling sites: Garden Grove, CA; and Nogales, Mexico. This serial success led to Evans being one of the largest hard goods suppliers in the industry, and culminated with the sale of the company to HPG in December 2022.
Reflecting on his retirement, Vaught expressed gratitude for the opportunity to be a part of the Evans Manufacturing team and to HPG for being a trusted partner to leave it to.
"It has been an incredible journey working with the talented individuals at Evans Manufacturing," he said. "I am immensely proud of what we have accomplished together, and I am confident that the company will continue to thrive and flourish in the years to come as part of the HPG family."
In addition to his professional achievements, Vaught has been an inspiring mentor and role model for numerous colleagues throughout his career. His willingness to share knowledge, provide guidance, and nurture talent has left an indelible mark on the company's culture, fostering an environment of teamwork, fairness, and respect.
Upon his retirement, Vaught plans to focus on personal interests, such as sailing and spending quality time with his loved ones. His invaluable contributions and lasting impact will be remembered by the entire HPG family.
“The HPG team wishes Alan a fulfilling and joyous retirement, and expresses deep appreciation for his unwavering dedication and remarkable achievements during his tenure," said HPG CEO Chris Anderson. "Evans and HPG remain committed to upholding the legacy Alan leaves behind, as it continues to deliver high-quality products and frictionless services to its valued customers. That said, Alan remains a significant HPG shareholder, and a trusted advisor to the company and to myself. ”
