Founder, Steve Harvey, is a commercial building contractor. In the late 1990’s Steve was at a truck dealership ordering a new utility truck. While there, he had thousands of dollars in tool taken from his truck. Frustrated with theft simply due to a compartment box left unlocked, he asked for the toolbox to be outfitted with electric locks. The service body manufacturers reply was, “Good idea, wish I could do it.”
After a few days of tinkering, an early P.O.P. Locks™ was born. Immediately, tradesmen working at his job sites were asking to also have their trucks outfitted. A new industry was born. The need to build and design new products is the foundation and credo of HDC. Uniquely, this passion has passed to the next generation of family who are already taking HDC to new frontiers.
Electric locking of simple locks used with toolbox latches were not power lock capable. Since 1991, this introduction of the industry’s first power locking product has enabled end-users a new, modern way to secure their valuables. HDC followed up with control systems to meet the unique needs of multi-compartment vehicles. P.O.P. Locks™ soon found their way to the factories of ambulances, fire trucks, rescue, and service vehicles as an O.E.M. option. Our collective experience has brought us to our current developments.
