Our founders draw on their backgrounds in robotics, space, defense, and manufacturing industries to deliver creative
solutions to your hardware problems.
Electronics manufacturing is traditionally an off-shored polluting industry driven to minimize costs to customers at the expense of the manufacturer’s workers, communities and the environment. Hellbender re-envisions this dynamic. We believe is possible to provide an affordable product while also paying above living wages and bringing all employees into ownership. We commit to quarterly charitable giving for watershed conservation and local veterans organizations. We are 100% carbon neutral, and employ industrial waste recycling so none of our process metals contaminate waterways. Our company was built around these ideals to prove that the manufacturing industry can run on a modern model of sustainability.
Cryptobranchus alleganiensis is North America’s only giant salamander and is native to the waterways of the hills and mountains of the eastern United States. Hellbenders as a species are listed as near threatened. They live only in clean and flowing rocky streams, breathing through their skin. In this way, they are an indicator of unpolluted water. The eastern hellbender is the official state amphibian of Pennsylvania, and our company’s namesake. Just as the hellbender requires a clean environment to live, we believe our employees require a healthy work environment so they can thrive.
