Revco Industries names new president

Revco Industries announced that Steve Hwang has been named president of the Santa Fe Springs, California, glove and protective apparel company.

A 16-year veteran of the company, Hwang was most recently executive vice president. Prior to that, he held positions as vice president of business development and operations, operations manager, and IT manager. 

Hwang graduated from UC Berkeley with a degree in Electrical Engineering and Computer Science.

“I am excited to take on this role and look forward to not only continuing, but expanding upon, Revco Industries’ core value of providing our customers with innovative gloves and flame-resistant garments that represent the highest standards in quality and value,” said Hwang. 

Former president C. Edward Chu will be CEO and chairman of the board. Chu joined Revco Industries more than 38 years ago. With a Ph.D. in Civil Engineering from the University of Minnesota, he spent four years with a consulting firm before joining the family business as vice president. After the death of his brother and Revco Industries founder Mitchell in 1981, Chu became president of the company.

“Steve has made numerous positive contributions and is a respected leader within the organization,” noted Ed Chu. “With Steve as president, along with our experienced management team, Revco is ready to face all challenges and changes in our current business environment.”
