H&H Salesman Hickman

Noah Hickman

The son of the founder, Noah Hickman joined the family business full time in 1989. He began his career pushing a broom but soon became a production employee. He learned to grind, fill, build and repair the O.T.R. tire. In a very short time he had mastered the knowledge of tire composition, construction and proper field application.

Noah soon assumed the responsibility of assisting in the supervision of one of the Nation’s largest O.T.R. tire inventory and began traveling the globe in search of quality O.T.R. casings and repairable tires. He shared the responsibility of shipping and receiving and also began to develop his up-front and forthright sales approach that has become the H&H style.

For several years Noah served as the only direct sales representative. The continued strong growth of the company can be directly attributed to his unfaltering and steadfast dedication to his customer and product.

While serving his company as Vice President, Noah’s passionate approach to his responsibilities has assisted him in opening doorways to the global marketplace. The family-owned business has introduced itself and its product to many customers in nearly every continent around the globe.

As the President of H&H, Noah has directly overseen the metamorphosis of this company from industry commonplace to the industry’s most technologically advanced facility. The changes, although astounding, pale in comparison to the changes made to reflect his personal management philosophy.

Ken Daniels

Vice President/COO

Ken came to H&H during its infancy in the spring of 1972.

The past fifty two years has brought Ken from an after-school tire changer to one of the nation’s leading O.T.R. repair and remanufacturing experts. The contributions to H&H and the industry as a whole remain incalculable at the very least.

As VP, COO and part owner, Ken looks over the day to day production as well as shipping, receiving and invoicing.

Under Ken’s direction, H&H was the first to remanufacture the 57 inch tire and the first to develop and produce pre-cure tread rubber for the O.T.R. tire. In late 2020, H&H purchased the molds used by Continuum and launched it’s NeXus Retread Products and Services line and now is the only producer of OTR premolded tread rubber in the United States.

Much of the repair and manufacturing material used by H&H is produced exclusively for H&H and has been designed by Ken Daniels. Many of Ken’s visions and accomplishments have served to set H & H apart from the industry competition while many more have become industry standards.
