A.H. Harris started out in 1916 as a small, family-owned and operated trucking company. Our focus then and now: To provide “the highest quality products and professional services” to our customers. Many things have changed since then. Now, we’re a company that distributes products to the heavy & highway, commercial, industrial and residential markets with special focus on forming, sitework and concrete repair and restoration. A.H. Harris has been proudly serving the construction industry for over a century, and like any successful business, our history is one of steady growth, expansion, and development.
