Alfred and Charles Harris created Harris Corporation in the 1890s. The brothers ran a jewelry store in Niles, Ohio, while they tinkered with a variety of new gadgets. Their first successful invention was an automatic sheet feeder which eliminated the laborious job of hand-feeding printing presses. The feeder was so advanced that the brothers developed a new printing press to accommodate it. The press was also revolutionary, delivering 10 times what a pressman could feed by hand.
