About Our Business
HCW Sales LLC (formerly HCW & Associates) is a professional manufacturers' representative firm operating out of the Pacific Northwest and servicing the West Coast.
HCW Sales LLC represents a dozen production suppliers across North America who specialize in different manufacturing disciplines. Our primary capabilities include sheet metal fabrication, machining, castings, PCBA and wire harness assemblies. If you are an OEM or manufacturer looking for new U.S. or Canadian suppliers in any of these categories, we can help! Our role as an agency is to understand customer needs and introduce you to our relevant suppliers if there is a fit.
Our team is involved with the initial introduction between customer and supplier. We engage with new companies, facilitate RFQs and identify potential opportunities / projects that align with our supplier capabilities. Quotes, purchase orders, and production of parts are all directly fulfilled by our suppliers & we stay engaged with these ongoing efforts in whatever capacity is necessary. At the end of the day, what we're really working towards is a healthy long term relationship between customer and supplier.
In September 2021, Scott Wagemans and Taylor Wagemans formally acquired HCW & Associates from founder and former owner, Hank Wagemans. We changed the name to HCW Sales, LLC and now look to grow into new markets and expand our value add to our customers.
In September 2022, HCW hired Michael Wagemans as a full time sales representative. Mike brings past inventory management, procurement and sales experience to the table. Mike will increase our capacity to uncover and support new business opportunities for our suppliers.
