Harper - Durability Pros Rely On

About Harper

Harper® cleaning tools have been the favorite for home and industrial use since 1899. It all started when a young Fairfield, Iowa, entrepreneur, Alphonso K. "A.K." Harper, watched his mother's daily struggle to scrub floors and keep other surfaces clean. He was inspired to create his first five-piece combination brush kit which was hand-crafted from horse hair.

The next year, Harper Brush Works, Inc. was founded. College students were hired to make the brushes part-time during the school year and travel full-time during the summer selling them from their wagons.

In 1925, Harper Brush Works started making industrial cleaning tools as well as household products, beginning the evolution of a diverse family of Harper products to suit a variety of specialized cleaning applications, often in direct response to customer suggestions.
