It all began in 1977. I was a documentary filmmaker who had run out of grant money. To support my film "habit", I formed HAVE, Inc. and started selling recycled, evaluated 3/4" videocassettes out of the basement of our "handyman special" country home. It gave me great satisfaction to offer to other producers like me a real cost saving, quality product that I used myself, and to do environmental good. (Still does and we still do.)
At that time I also wrote our ABC's, which laid down the principles on which our business was built - the only way I could be in business. Though HAVE has grown over the many years we've been in business, our ABC's remain as our guide and ethic.
Most meaningful to me have been the wonderful people who have been HAVE, and YOU, our Clients and Vendors, who, by your positive response, affirm who we are and what we do. We look to the future always, with great excitement and anticipation of the many more opportunities and creative interactions that lie ahead.
To our long-time Clients, thank you for your loyalty and support; to you who are now choosing your business partners, we hope you like what you see here and that you choose us. We'll do everything we can to make you delighted with your decision.

Elephants & Our Logo
Elephants with raised trunks are universal symbols of good luck. I've been collecting them since I was a child. When I started HAVE, I chose the elephant as our logo, hoping its good luck would touch not only our company, but everyone who did business with us as well.
Now African elephants may face extinction. Poachers, after their ivory, are wiping them out cruelly and ruthlessly at an incredible rate. Concerned people all over the world are working to save these magnificent, intelligent animals. In many countries, including ours, laws have been drafted to restrict the importation of all ivory. People are asked not to sell it or buy it, as it's impossible to know what is "old" ivory and what is "new."
My dream is that the measures necessary to help the elephant will succeed before the only elephants left will be those in the zoo, and in our logo. We actively support these efforts to protect elephants, and hope you will, too.
