The Company’s employees underpin the Harrison Wipes service ethos. “Their contribution has been fundamental to our success,” continued Stephen. “We are profoundly grateful for their ongoing support and contribution, without which we would not have been able to build a successful business.”

We also offer colour coded wiping solutions that help the end user reduce cross-contamination and have options that are environmentally friendly or especially effective for polishing or drying.”
