A Century of Experience

Wisdom Comes with Age

More than 100 years ago, J.W. Harrison established the National Car Coupler Company in the town of Attica, Indiana. Today, that company is Harrison Steel Castings Company, a world leader in the production of highly engineered carbon and low/medium alloy steel castings.

After listening to our customers for over a hundred years, this is what we’ve learned: they need sophisticated, powerful parts that work tough and won’t fail.

We understand the weight of our task, and that’s to make the components that power our way of life here in America. Every day, we accept that task and get to work designing, engineering, crafting, creating, testing, finishing, and often sweating to make sure we do it right. That’s what we’re here for, and it’s how we became a preferred supplier to many of the world’s most prestigious names in agriculture, heavy equipment, energy, military, mining, forestry, and the oil and gas industries. Our work speaks for itself, and we’re proud of what we make here.

A privately owned company, Harrison Steel operates a state-of-the-art, technology-driven international engineering and manufacturing organization. Our U.S. physical plant encompasses 650,568 square feet under roof and is capable of castings ranging from 350 to 12,500 pounds net casting weight. Sophisticated engineering software, tightly-controlled manufacturing processes, superior quality programs, a motivated, non-union workforce, an emphasis on safety, and a continuous improvement culture all inform and fuel the work we do.

To provide vertically integrated cast solutions through a philosophy of innovation, continuous improvement, quality focus, and data-driven actions.

Harrison Steel will be the global industry leader in providing high value cast solutions to diverse markets—emphasizing quality in both our product and our relationships.

A Note From Geoff Curtis

VP, General Manager, and fourth generation member of the Harrison family

What is so exciting about Harrison Steel is that we have a long, rich history and continue to be a very proactive, innovative company. We’re able to leverage 100 plus years of experience with the very latest technology and manufacturing and business processes to deliver highly competitive casting solutions to our customers. We recently completed construction of a 29,000 sq. ft. machine shop which will take us to the next level.
