Company History

Sharp School Services, Inc. was founded in the spring of 1989 when David and Martha Sharp acquired the assets of Stephic School Services. Our history would not be complete without beginning with the previous business opened in 1976 by Jake Stephic. We are still located in the original building in Hobart, Indiana. Our tradition of providing exceptional service and outstanding value really began at that time.

The year 1989 found us with a small business that employed five people and a retail store with 4,000 square feet of merchandise. Our efforts were concentrated in Northwest Indiana and several select counties in Northeast and Central Indiana.

Our business began to grow and additional sales staff was quickly added. The word was spreading that our company represented integrity and value in the educational market.

In 1996 we were honored to receive the U.S. Small Business Administration award for Entrepreneurial Success. Spring of 1997 brought further accolades when we were selected to receive this award for the entire state of Indiana.

As the operation has continued to grow, representatives across the state of Indiana have been recruited to provide top quality furniture and equipment sales. Our retail store continues to offer the best and most popular items teachers and parents' request.
