An Interview with Harold Grall-Pure Element Bottled Water- Texas, USA

1. Would you please tell us a little about yourself-family, friends, where you grew up, and hobbies, etc?

A: I was born in El Paso Texas; I moved to Texas Panhandle to attend college at West Texas State University and majored in Ag-Business and Economics. I moved to this part of Texas after graduation to pursue a farming career. I have been married for 12 years to Stacey. She is a banker at a local bank. We currently farm 8000 acres in Moore and Hartley Counties. Mostly corn growers are here. We love to rock climb but are not able to go as much now since we started our bottled water business.

2. How many years have you been in the water bottling business and how did you decide to get into this business?

A: We started the water business in 2004 in an attempt to add value to our most valuable resource, our water. We are located directly over one of the deepest areas of the Ogallala Aquifer and have incredible tasting water. We don’t have to purify our water and it is great in its natural state, all we do is add the bottle.
