Harrison Wipes Celebrate 125 Years In Business

We officially celebrated our 125th anniversary on Wednesday 15th June at an event that included employees, key suppliers and the Mayor of Havering, Cllr Philippa Crowder.

“We’re incredibly proud to celebrate 125 years in business,” said owner and Managing Director, Stephen Harrison. “The celebration made it possible for us to say thank you to our customers, suppliers and employees, without whom our success would not be possible.”

Following a welcome where 3rd generation and eldest statesman of the family, Alan Harrison and wife Marie Harrison unveiled the company timeline, guests were then invited to view the factory. The celebratory event concluded with a ceremony of speeches given by Stephen Harrison, Barclays Bank, suppliers Sontara® and Chicopee® and Cllr Philippa Crowder who jointly unveiled an official plaque with Stephen.

“Although the Company has made many innovative changes, its principles have remained fundamentally the same over our long history.

“Harrison Wipes®’ success has been underpinned by the ability to adapt to meet the changing needs of our customers and the positive mentality of our loyal employees. We look forward to the next 125 years.”
