Royal Pas Reform has announced the death of the company’s HVAC specialist Jack Hubbell, who passed away on Friday August 27th, aged 75 years.
Jack enjoyed an impressive 50-year career in the poultry industry, which began in 1972 at Hatchery Planning. He worked there until 1994 and was then CEO of Cumberland Hatchery Equipment until 1999. After leaving Cumberland, he started his own ventilation company, International Hatchery Services – which he ran until joining NatureForm in 2010, and thus joined Pas Reform on its acquisition in 2014.
Jack’s expertise in hatchery ventilation was widely recognized. His knowledge, experience and drive were pivotal to NatureForm and later for Royal Pas Reform.
Steve Warren, President of Pas Reform North America says: “Jack designed hatchery climate control systems literally all over the world. From Brazil to Africa, from Japan to The Netherlands, you can still find his signature on hatchery ventilation design.
“Jack was a very loyal and dedicated person. He will be deeply missed by all his friends and colleagues. Our sincere condolences and best wishes go to his wife Linda and to his children and grandchildren.”
