Company History

In 1896 when John Hill founded the Hill and Griffith Company, the concept of quality was adopted. He stated, "Hill and Griffith feels that the integrity of the company must be represented in the products and services bearing our names and labels." Today, this tradition still lives on.

Since it was founded, The Hill and Griffith Company has been recognized for many firsts. We have contributed form mold release agents, and metal and concrete casting lubricants to the industry. With an ongoing investment in research and development, Hill and Griffith has achieved unparalleled leadership with the introduction of new technologies, as well as quality supplies.
