Hardened Power Systems Launches Crowdfunded Campaign to Rebuild

Bill Harrison, KK4JPT, has announced that Hardened Power Systems has launched an online campaign to fund the rebuilding of their business.

On Halloween, the company suffered a devastating fire resulting in the loss of their manufacturing facility.

Hardened Power Systems manufactures several popular ham radio products including the D-HAP and JuiceBox.

Here is where you come in, we need your financial commitment to begin the process of rebuilding this business. We are determined to remain faithful to our commitment of quality, durability, and cost effectiveness. The process of rebuilding will take time and we are prepared for the journey ahead, but to expedite this process we need your support. In return we will make a promise to compensate you for your gift with limited editions of some of our gear to commemorate this event.

    I would imagine most places have insurance.

  • Matt W1MST:

    I do not know the circumstances here. Many businesses have insurance but some do not. For example, good luck getting your homeowners insurance policy to cover $30k worth of product inventory in a home-based business. Probably not going to happen.

  • Jeff, KE9V:

    Being a smaller, home-based business, there was no insurance. The building used was a complete loss along with the inventory it contained. The ham radio community is a close knit one, and I expect we will hear good things from Hardened Power Systems not too far down the road.

    All of us get by with a little help from our friends.

    Thanks for the shout out, Matt!!

    Regarding insurance, no. The new building was started this spring, and was almost finished. We had moved in a couple months ago, because we needed the space. I was going to appraise and insure the building once it was complete. And no, homeowners insurance is zero help in this circumstance.

    We are grateful for the support that has already been offered. It is humbling.

    Thanks everyone!
