More Than 30 Years…
Jim and Debbie Roofener originally opened their doors in April of 1978 as Hillsboro Pump Service. Jim’s goal was to provide superior customer service and products at a reasonable price.
During those years Hillsboro Pump Service was focused on servicing water well systems and electric motors. It was a common sight to see Jim out late on a weekend pulling a pump with a six year old Jimmy Jr. at the controls of the pump hoist. Meanwhile, back at the shop you would walk through the front door to find Debbie hard at work with the book keeping with 2 year old Jennifer in tow.
In 1990 Jim recognized a need to expand into wholesale and retail irrigation sales. With a need for more room, Jim and Debbie picked up and moved the shop to the current location in Cornelius where Hillsboro Pump Service became HPS Pipe and Supply.
Jim was also getting involved in larger jobs in the field such as excavation, large pipelines, and cat work. In 1997 HPS Pipe and Supply incorporated into two separate businesses. HPS Construction was formed and began adding services such as cell tower construction, metal buildings, and custom homes.
In 2000 Jim and Debbie decided to expand once again and opened Oak Acres Nursery, a wholesale plant farm. Today, all three companies employ over sixty full time employees and continue to provide their customers with the same kind of service Jim and Debbie have provided for over thirty years.
