Haws Corporation has announced the hiring of Board Member, Chuck Gruber, as President. Headquartered in Sparks, Nevada, Haws Corporation provides hydration and safety solutions such as drinking fountains, water coolers, and emergency eyewash stations and drench showers. Gruber is the first President of Haws Corporation from outside of the founding family, dating back to1906. He brings deep strategic, global manufacturing and safety experience.

“Chuck’s contributions to the Corporation as a Board member were significant and insightful from his first meeting. His curiosity, energy and enthusiasm brought a new perspective to the Board and his decision to come on as President, to lead the organization, brings us an opportunity to reach new levels of performance,” said Tom White, Chairman, CEO, and former President of Haws Corporation.

Gruber’s established track record of organizational growth, development of leading industrial solutions, and global expansion into new markets dovetails with Haws’ global growth agenda. Haws aims to expand current markets with new product offerings, enhanced value propositions, and expand the Haws global footprint with proven product lines.

A Chemical Engineering graduate of the New Jersey Institute of Technology, Gruber received his MBA from Temple University in Philadelphia PA.

Gruber, a long-established leader in the safety corridor, began his career at Rohm and Haas Corporation followed by executive posts at Elemica, GAF, Cannon Equipment and Safe Reflections. In all his roles, his attention to safety resulted in significant, sometimes double-digit improvement in on-site safety metrics within weeks of his arrival.
