January 2017: Happy New Year from Hapeman Electronics! This year, we are celebrating an exciting milestone... our 20th anniversary in business! We'd like to thank our clients for their years of support.
November 2016: Hapeman Electronics was featured as Northwest Commission’s “Success Story” in their recent November publication. You can read more about the Northwest Commission and their services at www.northwestpa.org!
"Hapeman Electronics, located in Stoneboro, Mercer County (Pennsylvania), was established in 1997 by Mr. Bryan Hapeman, current President and Owner of the company. Hapeman Electronics provides the industrial community with the best solutions for their automation and data collection needs. Not limited to automation, Hapeman Electronics offers services for electrical instrumentation calibration, as well as vibration and environmental chamber testing. To assist locomotive service shops, they also offer dedicated testing for a range of products such as Locomotive Battery Testers, the TDC Tester (designed for use on GE Locomotive Diesel Engines), and the GEB13 Traction Motor Field Tester.
The International Trade Program of the Northwest Commission has been working with Hapeman Electronics since 2011. Our program has assisted the company with export documentation to Canada, Mexico, Brazil, and Kazakhstan. We have also assisted with identifying HTS code for NAFTA purposes, and provided support for understanding Incoterms® and Export Administration Regulations (EAR). Hapeman Electronics also utilized services of PA Authorized Trade Representative for a company background check assistance in India.
Mrs. Sheri Hapeman, partner at the company, has recently contacted Northwest Commission for assistance with shipping 9 locomotive battery testers to Australia. The Northwest Commission shared a list of freight forwarders that could provide a shipping quote, and also advised on using appropriate Incoterm® for the shipment. Finally, Hapeman Electronics got the job and successfully accomplished their first shipment to Australia in September 2016.
Since then, Hapeman Electronics has had inquiries for this and other products, including their new Battery Conditioner, from companies in Europe, South America, and Africa. Sheri related that working with the Northwest Commission was a pleasure; Katarina met with both of them at their location multiple times to make sure they understood the Export Process. Sheri also expressed that the Northwest Commission’s Export Financing Seminar, called 'The Dollar Deal', was very informative."
