We create products that solve problems, simplify processes, and provide consistent performance for hydraulic and pneumatic applications. Our organization is comprised of four main divisions:
Brad studied tool and die making at Hennepin Technical School while working for a company that made mini donut machines. Brad, a young entrepreneur with an eye for innovation, started his own job shop to produce parts for the machines, and in 1979, formed Suburban Manufacturing, Inc. Brad’s wife and Suburban Manufacturing CEO Mary came on board as a saw operator in the early 80s.
In 1992, a manufacturing company asked Brad to produce an oil pump, a product the company was originally importing from Germany. Brad produced the same chain oiler for half the price, and the first family product was born: the Lube Minder®. From there, Suburban Manufacturing developed Tsunami Compressed Air Solutions™ and Python Protective Sleeves & Coverings.
