La Vernia Pump & Supply celebrates anniversary

La Vernia Pump & Supply Inc, an oil field supply and sales business, located at 203 E. Chihuahua St. in La Vernia, is celebrating its 30th anniversary this year.

The business opened March 16, 1981, and celebrated 30 years in business March 16, with an open house. Keith and Becky Johanson, owners of La Vernia Pump & Supply, have watched the business grow in that time.

“I started this business, because it was an opportunity to go into business for myself,” Keith said.

La Vernia Pump & Supply offers oil field tubulars, well head equipment, down-hole pumps, valves, and pump jacks. Down-hole pump sales and service has been the most popular item offered.

“All of our prices are competitive, because we are able to keep the overhead low,” Keith said. “Our business is different from our competition because of the great service we offer our customers.”

The owners have been a part of the business community for as long as the business has been open. Keith said the part of his job he enjoys the most is the sales portion.

“I love sales and turning deals,” he said.

Along with a growing business, the Johansons have had a growing family. Keith and Becky have two daughters, Bethany Becknell and Jinine Pinson; one son, Charlie Johanson; a son-in-law, Wes Becknell; and a daughter-in-law, Julie Johanson.

Keith has a Bachelor of Science degree in history and physical education from Stephen F. Austin State University in Nacogdoches. He enjoys spending his free time playing dominoes, golfing, or playing his harmonica at local nursing homes.

Keith has 32 years’ experience in the oil field profession. If you’ve got questions, he’s got the answers.

La Vernia Pump & Supply Inc. is open Monday through Friday, 8 a.m. to 5 p.m.
