New President for Hobas Pipe USA

Hobas Pipe USA has announced that Martin W. Dana, who joined the HPUSA management team as vice president of sales in January of 2018, has been promoted to the position of president and CEO effective April 1, 2020.


Dana holds a bachelor of science degree in finance from the University of Oregon in Eugene. He is a 27-year veteran of the pipe industry, starting his career in 1993 with Oregon Steel Mill’s Napa Pipe division, selling pipe to the oil and gas industry. Martin joined HPUSA after spending the previous 18 years at Northwest Pipe Company in Portland. Northwest Pipe Company is the largest manufacturer of engineered steel water pipe systems in North America. While at Northwest Pipe, Martin held various positions including, vice president of sales, vice president of the tubular division and vice president of business development.

“Martin has done an outstanding job of leading our sales efforts for the past two years and we are confident that he is the right person to take HPUSA to even greater heights going forward”, said Ed Kocurek, outgoing president/CEO. "We continue to be excited about the future of the company as we build on our past successes, expand our product portfolio, and continue to provide both outstanding products and services to our clients."

Kocurek has served the company for nearly 34 years in a variety of roles. He has presided as president and CEO of HPUSA for the past 20 years.

Under Kocurek’s leadership, the company has grown from a relatively small market segment pipe supplier to the successful international business it is today. Hobas Pipe is currently in water and sewer systems throughout North America, from Hawaii to Newfoundland and from Mexico to Alaska. From its original 36,000 square foot facility, HPUSA has expanded to over 150,000 square foot under roof and has a workforce of over 170 employees.

Kocurek will remain with the company through 2021 as an advisor to the new president/CEO.
