Harper and Company Incorporated is a full service commercial swimming pool, chemical, equipment, and service company. Its roots trace back to E.A. Harper & Company grocery and general supply store that was formed in 1906 and later became a janitorial supply company. In 1997, Charles and Jennifer Harper decided to branch off from his grandfather’s business and opened Harper and Company.
Harper and Company’s headquarters is located in Newport News with other facilities in Prince George County and Roanoke, Virginia. In 2015, Dan Berry, who was a 15-year employee of the company, purchased the business. The company currently has 15 employees and a client base that extends throughout the Mid-Atlantic states.
Harper and Company provides services to clients which include Kingsmill Properties, Anheuser Busch, Busch Gardens, Water Country USA, YMCAs and numerous military bases, colleges, and universities. In addition to the chemical and equipment side of its business, Harper and Company also offers educational services with two national certification courses available for commercial swimming pool operators. This year the company will continue expanding its client base, with plans to explore opportunities in large healthcare and fitness facilities.
