A Brief History Of Brand Hydraulics Corporation

Brand Hydraulics was founded in 1956 by Glen Brand and his wife Mary Lou in Omaha, Nebraska. Having won the 1948 Olympic Gold Medal in London, England in free-style wrestling, Glen went on to study engineering at Iowa State. Since Glenís passing in 2008 the company has been and will continue to be ran by Glen and Mary Louís only child, Greg Brand.

Brand has designed, manufactured, assembled and tested hydraulic valves for over 55 years. In 1997, Brand began to design and incorporate electronic controllers and custom wiring harnesses into their product line. Brand is strongly committed to the future of hydraulics and electro-hydraulic components and plans to continue developing hydraulic valves, electronic controllers and products which incorporate both (electro-hydraulics).

Many of the products Brand provides are modified to specifically fit our customersí applications and needs. Feel free to give our engineering department a call to learn more about special modifications to meet your needs.
