Research & Development

Harrison Manufacturing prides itself on the quality of the research and development work it conducts and the innovative ideas it provides to the lubrication industry. Harrison Manufacturing has continued to strategically develop its R&D capabilities to become a highly sought-after source of technical knowledge, in particular within the core area of grease.

To achieve this goal the company has continued to expand its testing capabilities and equip its laboratories with state of the art grease and lubes testing machinery that service both routine quality control checks as well as more fundamental Research and Development.

Our Technical team is comprised of highly qualified industrial chemists and engineers, led by an internationally experienced manager. The highly talented technical team has achieved major breakthroughs, including a provisional patent in clay greases and the recent development of a proprietary soap production process called ‘SmartLix™’. New product development work extends into “green” products and effective innovation is aided by having in house pilot plant capabilities.

Harrison Manufacturing’s Technical group receives many R&D requests from its broad customer base. These range from developing brand new products to quality improvement, cost reduction projects to custom-made products that meet OEM specifications. Harrison Manufacturing leverages its R&D activities through collaboration with local and international universities and research centers.
