For over 100 years, A.H. Harris has been fortunate enough to build strong relationships with our vendor partners. We want our construction community to learn more about our vendors and give them an opportunity to share their story. That's why we are running our "Partner Profile" Blog Series. It was five years ago, that A.H.Harris and MBW formed a strong relationship. Let's hear it from MBW!
In part 36 of our ‘Meet the Team’ series, we were lucky enough to have the chance to speak with Paul Ferrari. Paul has moved around a lot in the company but currently holds the role of Inventory Control Manager. Paul has been with A.H.Harris for just over 6 years and has gotten the opportunity to visit every single one of our locations! Let’s hear more from Paul.
In part 35 of our 'Meet the Team' series, we got the chance to speak with Mike Rice, an Operations Specialist working out of the West Hartford office. Mike has been with A.H. Harris his entire professional career. He upholds all the values we strive for here at A.H. Harris and makes the best carrot cake! Let's hear it from Mike.
In part 34 of our 'Meet the Team' series, I got the chance to speak with Corrine DePinto, the A/P Supervisor. Corrine has been with A.H. Harris for over 11 years and plays a large role in organization and projects, among many other things. Corrine never fails to keep her co-workers smiling with her upbeat spirit and sense of humor. She's a perfect example of what A.H. Harris is all about. Now, let's hear it from Corrine!
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!
We are excited to continue our strong relationship with the TCA. Our CEO Kim Corwin is a past president on the TCA Board of directors and now Harris account manager John Adams is serving as a member. Congratulations, John!

Brace yourself, winter is coming. Among the many challenges associated with concrete construction, there is none more common than that of pouring and placing concrete in cold weather. While cold weather concreting has been addressed overtime with varying levels of effectiveness, there is really only one optimal approach to proper curing during cold weather. Additives and accelerators have unfavorable side effects, but insulated heat application doesn’t.
