Praise for HCB

It has been an exceptional pleasure working with HCB and its staff. No matter the inquiry, they have been very responsive and proactive in helping us meet our goals. Their advice and insight have been greatly beneficial in developing creative marketing solutions. In fact, this particular need has led us to a well-established relationship with Greg Emmenis, HCB’s advertising manager. With his intimate knowledge of tank storage, we were able to connect with opinion leaders in the industry, further developing our own resources and acquiring what we need in order to further our endeavors. His focus and optimism has brought about solutions to our promotional needs that we never thought possible.

HCB editor, Holly Birkett, has also been a great asset to us, especially with our recent internal tank coating article. Her passion for her work is evidenced by her quick and efficient responses. Holly has been incredibly receptive to all questions and comments that we have sent in, and has become most invaluable to us.

Over the last thirty years, HCB has been the very hub of the containment and transportation of hazardous materials. Any new information is discovered, assessed and conveyed quickly and efficiently, keeping its readers abreast at all times. While doing this, HCB has gone further than any other trade publication. In March of 2013, it has become the first to ever incorporate an LCD screen into the magazine, giving their clients a newer and more innovative way to advertise.

Ultimately, the person to thank is Peter Mackay, who is both the Managing Editor of HCB and the Director of HCB Publishing LTD. He brings with him two decades of experience in the hazardous cargo industry and expert knowledge in journalism to make this publication what it is today.
