We trace our beginnings to 1974 and Bob Harper, who formed Harper International. Bob was a dear friend, mentor, and a consummate innovator. To us, he was the original “Valvologist”, who trained and passed down his technical expertise, salesmanship and customer service values. Fred Haines began his training in CT, NJ and NYC working with high profile customers, such as the former World Trade Center staff, and many of the same municipalities and building owners he continues to service today. Bob retired in 1996, and Fred Haines purchased the company with a partner the same year. In September 2012, both partners agreed to go their separate ways, closing Harper International after 39 years, and open their own separate businesses.
When Fred started Harper Haines Fluid Control, Inc., he merged the two names to represent the continuation of the same quality and service of his 22 years with Harper International. Harper Haines is strengthened by the quality products we represent. Great products are critical, but we are known for our extravagant service and our fluid control knowledge.

Technology and Emerging Lead Free Requirements
We search for manufacturer’s products that improve our ability to find, and provide the leading lead-free valves that meet with the legal standards required. JRG is not certified lead free and with over 20 years experience as their Representative, we will not risk drinking water projects with unconventional resources and will sell our reliable and high performing JRG valves only for industrial applications. Cla-Val did private label JRG, known as the Cla-Val 990. In preparation for 2014 and knowing the JRG materials, Cla-Val developed a high performing lead free equal to the JRG direct acting pressure reducing valve, know as a CRDL. Find more information in on our Product List Page.
Our products can meet any specifications for the American Iron & Steel Requirements; and the new standards for plumbing valves of the 2014 Lead-Free Law.
We also keep up-to-date on the development of emerging energy technologies, such as finding better ways for customers to keep a distant eye on their valve pits using technology and expanding their ability for flow control with Cla-Val’s new ValvApps.
