COMPANY PROFILE J. N. Harriman & Company Limited is one of the oldest business firms in Trinidad and Tobago having been in existence for some 148 years.

Harriman's became a registered company in 1873, and in 1885 it was purchased by Karl Boos. In 1920 Carl August Boos acquired the company from his father, and further developed Harriman's interests in the agency/distribution business, shipping and agriculture. In 1932, Errol Herman Boos, a mining Engineer, upon the death of his father Carl, became Managing Director of J. N. Harriman & Company Limited. In 1983, Robert C.
