Germantown-Based Gene’s Johns Acquired by Don’s Johns



Three companies will come together to create a super pooper business.

It was announced on Monday, that Germantown-based Gene’s Johns, a company which provides portable toilets had been acquired by Gainsville-Va.-based Don’s Johns, another portable sanitation products and services company. The deal also includes Gene’s Johns sister company, Blue Ribbon Restroom Trailers also based in Germantown.


Gene’s Johns, Inc., with headquarters on Ridge Road, has been doing business in UpCounty Montgomery County for over 25 years. The deal unites three of the largest independent providers in the District of Columbia, Maryland and Virginia area, and strengthens Don’s Johns as the largest provider of sanitation services in the mid-Atlantic region.

Gene’s Johns and Blue Ribbon Restroom Trailers are both family owned and operated, with each bringing core values that align with the Don’s Johns principles of quality, excellent customer service and placing a high value on their employees.


“We are excited about the acquisition of such a high-quality operation. The addition of Blue Ribbon greatly strengthens our position in the restroom and shower trailer market and increases our inventory by 25 units, all in new condition,” said Conrad Harrell, president of Don’s Johns. “Gene’s Johns greatly expands our territory in northern Montgomery and Frederick Counties in Maryland.”

According to the release, Don’s Johns will continue to maintain its headquarters and operations in Gainesville and will run a satellite location for operations in Germantown.
