About HPC Global:

HPC Global (formerly Hanover Pen Corporation) manufacturers a complete line of promotional products including USA-made and imported writing instruments as well as business, desk and tech accessories. Additionally, HPC offers a highly effective USA-made hand sanitizercollection, a selection of other health and beauty items, and Utz® brand food gift items.

Based in Hanover, Pennsylvania, the company’s heritage dates back to 1913 when it began business as the Hanover Centershaft Company, which was founded by Ralph Hoke. The principal product at that time was the “wooden penholder.” This general writing instrument of the day was used along with the felt paper blotter—both of which were widely used with advertising imprints. Much has changed in the last century, as today the company’s USA-made pens are assembled and printed more than 50,000 units per eight-hour shift.

A long-time industry supporter, HPC is a charter member of Specialty Advertising Association (SAA), the predecessor of Promotional Products Association International (PPAI), as well as the Writing Instruments Manufacturers Association Inc. (WIMA).
