About

Hello, my name is Jason. I am the owner

and operator of Harner Brothers. I would

like to give you some background on

myself and the company.

In 1997 I graduated High school in Dillsburg Pa. After 3 years of wood shop in middle school and 4 more years in high school I knew building things was something I was meant to do. Just before graduation my shop teacher came to me and told me someone had asked for their best student, because they had a job opening. I was very excited and thanked him for thinking that I was that best student. He told me that I would not be working with wood but a similar product called corian.   I was given the interview and was hired making $7/hr for 40 hrs a week. I worked with the company for about 3 years and decided to move out of the area and into a different line of work, just for a change of things. For about two years I was running a restaurant as an asst. manager. After I bounced around a couple jobs, I quickly realized that it was not for me. So I applied for another counter top job. I was hired and felt back where I belonged. I was installing quartz counter tops for some local big name stores. But after about 8 months the company was going through some changes and decided not to build counter tops anymore. I then got another job and things were looking good. I was building laminate counter tops and was in charge of all the solid surface going through the shop. Then the owner died and the family decided to close the shop. I knew then I had to do something different.   In 2004 when I started Harner Brothers custom counter tops, it was not easy having a child and one on the way. I had to work part time for a while with other builders and landscapers to make ends meet. About one year in I had enough business to work just for Harner Brothers. Things were looking great. We had our third child, I wasn't getting rich, but I was paying the bills. At least, until 2008, when the economy crashed. I again had to get another job to make some extra money. Thank god it only lasted about 6 months and I was able to fade out the part time work again.   Which brings us to current times. I am happy to say that we are doing great (still not getting rich) lol but making ends meet and raising our kids as best as we can. So I hope I haven't bored you to much but I figured some background on myself and the company would help. Have a great day :)
