U.S. Sen. Marco Rubio, chairman of the Senate Committee on Small Business and Entrepreneurship, named Hog Technologies, of Stuart as the U.S. Senate Small Business of the Week.

Florida's senior senator released the following video message to congratulate the up-and-coming business. A broadcast quality version can be found here.

“As chairman of the United States Senate Committee on Small Business and Entrepreneurship, it is my pleasure to honor Hog Technologies of Stuart as the Senate Small Business of the Week. Founded in 1988, Hog Technologies manufactures water blasting equipment that removes markings from roadways and rubber from airport runways. Hog has grown significantly since its humble beginnings when founder James P. Crocker bought a single power washer from a friend and began knocking on doors to find work. Since then, Hog Technologies has been a one-of-a-kind entrepreneurial success.

 “Today, they have more water blasting units operating around the globe than their five closest competitors combined. They also hold more than 20 patents and have products operating in more than 50 countries worldwide. Hog Technologies has been continually recognized for their ongoing dedication to their community. In 2017, James was named the Stuart/Martin County Chamber of Commerce Business Person of the Year.

“In addition to supporting the local Stuart community, Hog has financed much of the construction of a home for underprivileged children in India. James and the entire team at Hog Technologies are an outstanding example of Florida innovation, and I am proud to honor them as the Senate Small Business of the Week.”

 Originally founded as Waterblasting Technologies, James P. Crocker saw an issue and created a solution. Hog Technologies is looking to continue its success as it expands to a new 65,000 square foot facility and add 130 employees over the next three years.

The Senate Committee on Small Business and Entrepreneurship oversees proposed legislation on matters relating to the Small Business Administration and investigates all problems relating to America’s small businesses.
