Ranch Hand Taking Care of Employees Affected by Hurricane Harvey

Ranch Hand Truck Accessories is developing a fund for its employees affected by Hurricane Harvey. Using a portion of orders between Sept. 11-22, the fund will go directly to those employees.

Ranch Hand is headquartered in the South Texas town of Shiner and operates a manufacturing facility in Beeville, Texas. Beeville is only 65 miles from the Texas coast where Harvey initially made landfall. Several Ranch Hand employees live in areas affected by the storm and subsequent flooding.

“We have been diligent in reaching out directly to our employees to fully understand the extent of the damage they incurred from the storm,” said Mike Kane, vice president of manufacturing. “Our goal is to take care of our own as directly as possible.”

In addition, Ranch Hand employees have been actively participating in the collection and distribution of funds, clothing and supplies to those affected by the storm. This effort is spearheaded by Kaspar Companies, the fifth-generation family-owned holding company of Ranch Hand, also based in Texas.

“We have deep roots in South Texas,” said Jason Kaspar, CFO of Kaspar Companies. “Something like Hurricane Harvey reinforces in us the need to do what we can to take care of our employees, their families and our neighbors.”

Ranch Hand was founded in 1986 and has been a part of Kaspar Companies since 2001.
