In part 33 of our 'Meet the Team' series, I had the chance to speak with Ed Hoyt, the Director of Operations. Ed has been with A.H. Harris for 9 years now & has been a huge part in many projects. With the opening of our new location in Allentown, PA Ed has played a major role in making sure this move was a success. Ed has put many miles on his car as he travels to each branch constantly to assist each team. He is a perfect example of Harris Pride. Now, let's hear it from Ed!
