We are the right people, doing things the right way.

HECO has grown well beyond a small business in a city with a funny name (Kalamazoo).

HECO is hiring in Michigan, Kentucky, Indiana, Ohio, and Pennsylvania. We now service steel mills, auto manufacturers, energy, and pharmaceutical companies throughout the Midwest.

Once you get past the advanced technology, the sophisticated systems, the facilities and equipment, it comes down to our philosophy:
“Do it the right way. All the time. Every time.”

Whether it’s the quality of work, the respect shown to co-workers, or the way challenges are met and overcome, there’s a right way and a wrong way. The thing is, you don’t get to decide. At HECO, it’s the right way each time. Every time. And that makes the work environment here pretty amazing.

Careers at HECO

We Welcome Challenges

Rather than complain about challenges, we welcome them; where you can be honest in dealing with others, but always respectful; where you can admit mistakes, learn from them, then move on. It’s just the right way to do things.


Ready to move? We’ll help.

HECO has attracted and relocated people here from across the country, including Oklahoma, Tennessee, Louisiana, and North Carolina — and that’s just in the last couple of years. Many have joined us after spending 10 or 15 years at other employers. If the fit is right and you’d like to be here, we’ll make it happen.
