Today Marks Hannibal Industries' Fifth Year of Employee Ownership

LOS ANGELES, CA -- (Marketwire) -- 03/20/13 -- Today Hannibal Industries celebrates the five-year anniversary of being 100% employee-owned. Under the Employee Stock Ownership Plan (ESOP), the company has experienced 50% sales growth since the ESOP.

"The fact that Hannibal Industries' employees have a stake in the company has created a unique corporate culture of employees committed to their company's success," said Blanton Bartlett, president of Hannibal Industries, Inc. "Hannibal Industries' employee-owners are a driven team, and I am proud to be among them."

Hannibal Industries' ESOP was established on March 20, 2008 when company employees, led by Blanton Bartlett, decided that ownership was a great alternative to having the company sold off to an outsider. As a result, employee ownership has created equitable wealth for employees. Research on ESOPs has shown that they build successful, competitive companies that often pay higher wages than non-ESOP companies. Additional information on ESOPs can be found on the ESOP Association website here: http://www.esopassociation.org/.

Hannibal Industries manufacturers steel tube and storage systems in the U.S.A. and it works with some of the world's largest companies. Click here to see a company video: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=COy3I4FJ2rc
