Meet the Founder

John Harris


"I have had the pleasure of working with James E. Harris Construction for many years. They've been one of the best contractors I have found in the Water and Wastewater industry.

Our company has supplied pumping equipment and accessories for JEH to install at hundreds of projects in the metropolitan Charlotte area. They ALWAYS do a great job. Their attention to details leaves the customer more than happy with the results!

Lead by John Harris, they are a good partner and exhibit the character, trust and experience to get the job done. Their team are reliable and do a great job!"
