In 1899, John Harris invented the flame cutting torch, leading to the founding of the HARRIS CALORIFIC Company, USA, in 1905.

In 1914, Joseph W. Harris founded the J.W. HARRIS Company, USA, and developed most of the welding alloys and fluxes that we still use today.

In 2005, Lincoln Electric acquired and merged both companies to become THE HARRIS PRODUCTS GROUP.  


Today, based in Mason Ohio, USA, THE HARRIS PRODUCTS GROUP has four manufacturing locations in three countries and a worldwide network of distributors and sales offices covering more than 90 countries.

Kembla (HK) Limited is a LINCOLN ELECTRIC authorised distributor for Hong Kong and Macau markets.
