Brand Hydraulics Co
A Brief History Of Brand Hydraulics Corporation
Brand Hydraulics was founded in 1957 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. Although still active, today the Company is run by his only child, Greg Brand, who plans to continue the business.
Brand has designed, manufactured, assembled and tested hydraulic valves for over forty 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).
