AboutATS Electro-Lube International Inc.
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.
Consulting with engineers at the University of British Columbia, what was to be a five-minute meeting became hours of brainstorming. The ELECTRO-Luber was possible.
The company, named after the first initials of his three children, flourished and Tony continued inventing new products. The market demands were becoming more diverse and an advancement was needed. In response, he developed the motor-driven ULTIMATE Luber.
ATS' original Electro-Luber© , invented in 1982, was the world's first self-contained lubrication device. The unit uses inert nitrogen gas to power a system that is safe for intrinsically hazardous and explosive environments. In the decades since it's conception, ATS has continued to lead the way in creating innovative, efficient, and effective lubricating equipment for all applications. We boast the widest range of temperature applications (-40C/F to +70C/+160F), continue to update our products for a constantly evolving industry, and make everything in house so our end-users have a dependable yet economical product.
