Harrop Engineering Celebrates 65 Years In 2020

Harrop Engineering, the privately-owned Australian company, celebrates 65 years of operation in 2020. The company operates an R&D center and warehouse facility in Dayton, Ohio.

Founded in 1955 by Len Harrop, Harrop Engineering originally focused on specialist general engineering for the textile and general trucking/haulage industries. It wasn’t until later when the production of performance parts continued to gain momentum through Ron’s car racing, with the iconic Harrop Howler through to touring cars (HDT) and then engineering Holden Racing Team Commodores.

In 2008, Harrop Engineering was acquired by Adrad Group, a family-owned conglomerate of companies from Adelaide, South Australia. Today the business offers several core product groups: supercharging and induction, braking, driveline and cooling over several different market segments, alongside their industrial manufacturing capabilities.

“We are very proud to be celebrating our 65th year as an Australian manufacturer. It is with a salute to our staff who create and our customers that partner with us, [which] enables us to deliver precision-engineered solutions. We embrace the challenge of continuing to innovate our products, processes and engineering service offerings for our broad customer base,” Harrop Engineering Operations Manager Tim Harrop said.
