Customer Spotlight: Harry "Buzz" Hooper, Rubber & Accessories Inc.

Harry Buzz Hooper We would like to congratulate long time customer Harry "Buzz" Hooper on receiving the George W. Carver award at the annual NAHAD meeting this past week in Tucson, Arizona. NAHAD celebrated their 25th anniversary by honoring Harry's long record of service as one of its founding members. 

The George W. Carver award is named for the association's third president, the late George W. Carver, and given in memory of "his spirit and his quiet, firm commitment to teamwork and excellence."

Hooper, the first president of NAHAD and vice president of Rubber & Accessories Inc. in Lakeland, Florida was recognized for "his critical role in the formation, development, leadership and continued support of NAHAD since its inception in 1984," NAHAD officials said.

Leadership in the industry runs in the family, as Hooper's daughter, Jackie Britt, president of Rubber and Accessories Inc., served as NIBA's (The Belting Association) president last year. 

We congratulate Buzz on this well deserved honor and salute his leadership in the industry.
