My 1st trip to Bruin was in March of 1976, so I’ve been told. I was 2 weeks old and my mom brought me in. My first memories of Bruin would be of the countless times my dad brought me down on Saturdays so he could work on or weld on something. I always liked hanging out with him and being around all the machines. I also enjoyed using the pallet jacks as a scooter and would race up and down the aisles. I worked here for 3 different summers, doing all sorts of jobs, in high school. From cleaning out the oil trays underneath the molding machines to sorting parts and filling hoppers with material, to CAD. During Christmas time of 2012, while working as a project manager for an engineering consultant, I got a call, asking if I would like to work there, to which I said yes. I became the owner on December 23, 2017, when my dad passed away in an airplane accident. Miss you, Dad. So, today, we look onward and upward. We’re firm believers in reinvesting in new technology, automation, and in our people. And the future looks bright!
