Henry F. Henderson, Jr.
After working at Richardson Scale Company for a number of years, Henderson’s entrepreneurial spirit led him to start Henderson Industries (HI) in 1952. Winning a contract from Richardson, HI began growing rapidly. Manufacturing sophisticated instrumentation and control panels, headquarters were moved from Henderson’s home to a large industrial plant. Under Henderson’s leadership, HI has grown from a small basement enterprise with $20,000 in sales to a large industrial technology firm with revenues of $50 million.
