In 1975, our founder, Anton (Tony) Orlitzky, started to design what would become a revolutionary change to the lubrication industry: an automatic electronic lubricant dispensing unit.
Previous to his invention, Tony had been working long hours as a maintenance superintendent. He realized that there were many shortcomings in the lubrication industry, especially in the areas of reliability and productivity. The only automatic lubrication device he had seen was quite limited in it's use because it emitted hydrogen gas which was potentially explosive. He envisioned a single-point luber that would work with inert gas so it could be used in hazardous industrial areas.
