Hawkins Bailey Warehouse opened for business in 1994, out of a small horse barn in Bedford, IN. Randy Hawkins, a local businessman who had worked in the heavy-duty parts industry for close to two decades, partnered with Damon Bailey, the Heltonville/Bedford raised Indiana Hoosier basketball star (who previously worked with Randy during off-seasons) to open HBW, with hopes of being the premier supplier of heavy-duty maintenance supplies in central and southern Indiana.
HBW's dedication to customer service, along with strong vendor relationships, ensured that the company would quickly outgrow it's meager beginnings operating out of a refurbished horse barn. In 1999, Randy and Damon purchased HBW's new and current home, the old M. Fine & Son's textile factory in central Bedford. The 70,000 sq ft. facility was renamed the Hawkins Bailey building, fully updated and equipped with multiple docks for semi and box trucks, along with portions of the facility developed for commercial lease.
Over it's two-plus decade history, HBW has grown from a small barn with a handful of employees to one of the communities most successful enterprises. We attribute that primarily to customer relationships. Our primary dedication is to supply our customer's needs, whether those be services provided by our sales and delivery teams, or in procurement of specific products our customers require. These factors have lead HBW to not only supply heavy-duty maintenance products, but various other business supplies as well. In 2013, HBW acquired our sister company Resource Services LLC., specializing in janitorial, food service, paper products and general office supplies.
