A note from Michael D. Halleck

October 15, 2021

"I have been blessed to be a part of HWI from the very beginning in 1984. I worked professionally for HWI since 1990 and served as President since 2000. I have many memories both of success and hardship, celebrations and storms: I'm grateful for them all. I am especially blessed to have met and worked with an amazing group of employees, customers and partners. My life would have been very different had I chosen another career path. I would not trade the last 30 years. This acquisition of HWI by SteriPack marks a new chapter, no, a new volume in the history of this organization. While we achieved more than our fair share of successes on our own, I'm very excited about the prospects of what this group can accomplish with the excellence of SteriPack, HS Design and GPP supporting us. To borrow from every High School teacher's graduation speech, I see the future, and it is so bright I need to wear shades. Thank you all for the opportunity to serve."
