Haviland Clay Works was started in 1903 by A.J. Rust. At that time it employed about 25 area residents and manufactured only clay tile. The clay was dug from fields adjoining the plant and was shaped and fired in large walk-in kilns. In 1946 the company transferred ownership from the Mumma family, who had taken over the company in the 1920’s, to D. C. Stoller . The company continued growing, and in 1965 changed ownership to the current owners. In 1978 they began manufacturing plastic tubing. Over the past years, Haviland Drainage Products Co. has continued to grow and add new products as the need arises. Throughout the years and the many changes, superb quality and excellent service have continued to remain.
