Scotty's Retirement Notice
Dear Customers, and Friends of Hawk-Eye Picture Tube Mfg.
As you all know, our industry has changed, and it is with great reluctance that I have decided to retire the business after 53 years. My father, Frank, started the business in 1958. He continued to own and operate Hawk-Eye until I took over in 1975. It has been a wonderful family business and career.
An actual date has not been set, however it will be by year's end. I am in the process of liquidating stock, and beginning to prepare for the storage of the equipment required to rebuild CRT tubes. My goal is to find someone who is willing to inherit the equipment, and continue the rebuild process. I can make myself available to set-up shop, teach the in/outs, and answer questions as they arise.
Since I really do not know how soon it will be before I have to shut down, I would ask that all collectors and anybody thinking about getting your old or antique tube rebuilt NOW is the time to send it in.
It has been a great 52 years of business. My family and I thank you all for your loyalty, and dedication you have shown to Hawk-Eye Picture Tube Mfg.
