History

Built on a Foundation of Service

Bud Hedrick, as anyone who knows him would agree, was born to sell and service customers. After serving in the US Navy, he was drawn to sales, and began with The Marley Cooling Tower Company sales office in Chicago. Personal and professional opportunities brought him to Grand Rapids, Michigan, where he joined The Behler Young Company, a distributor of heating, cooling, and ventilation-related products. In 1981, a rapidly growing Liebert Corporation asked if Bud would be willing to form a representative organization for the Western and Northern Michigan area. He seized the opportunity, and in April of 1981 Hedrick Associates was born, representing Liebert and Marley. Bud retired in 1992, but the sales and support staff who have joined the company over the years still proudly carry on the tradition of excellence which he started.
