Celebrating Over a Century of Dedicated Service


Georgia-based Harris specializes in manufacturing products that benefit the scrap processing, recycling, and waste-handling industries. It was founded in 1889 by two business partners who began a machine shop and fabricating business to support the sawmill and railroad industries in and around Cordele, Georgia. Harris later became known for designing the world’s first hydraulic baler in the 1930s, the first hydraulic shear in the 1950s, and the first two ram baler in the 1960s. As President Greg King asserts, the company effectively was the shear and baler industry both domestically and globally for a time.
