Expertise in Action.  

Reliability.  Efficiency.  Sustainability. 

A message from our CEO, Ken Jefferd

"It's an exciting time in the industrial world with major advances being made at the intersection of multiple technical and commercial disciplines.  In an intensely competitive market, there are huge commercial opportunities for companies who can successfully innovate.

At HRL, the team comes to work every day driven to solve our customers' most difficult technical challenges - to deliver innovation, and transform commercial performance.  Our mission is to dramatically improve the reliability, efficiency and sustainability of our customers' assets and processes through technical innovation.

Shaking hands with a customer who is inviting us back to work on a new project because of the value created last time is a source of deep motivation for our experts...and HRL's regular customers include some of Australia and SE Asia's largest energy, resources and industrial companies.

Over time HRL has assembled and continues to build a genuinely unique blend of advanced laboratory and field testing, materials, science, technology and engineering capability stemming from our roots as the R&D group within the State Electricity Commission Victoria.

In galvanising our brand, we are also re-invigorating how we partner with customers we call this the HRL BluePrint.  It's a tried and trusted, yet differentiated approach, applying all our years of experience plus new thinking to tailor a relationship and outcome best-suited to the customers' situation.

As your business identifies the technical challenges it needs to solve to sustain and drive growth, the team at HRL looks forward to partnering with you to deliver the innovation you need to win in the market."
