At BRC, we strive to design our products for maximum longevity by using commercial grade components such as metal brackets, threaded inserts, metal legs, steel frames and high density particleboard. These components, when assembled constitute a durable product that can withstand the challenges of the workplace for many years. In addition, all products are designed for easy installation of repair parts, precluding the necessity to replace the entire product. Metal to metal connections, heavy gauge steel components, polished and ground lead (lifting) screws and composite gears are examples of long life components in our products.

Bill supports and endorses a North American, community strong, manufacturing base where today’s youth are meaningfully employed and gain skills while mentored by experienced workers. His unique approach to business has become an integral part of BRC’s philosophy and is endorsed by a knowledgeable and dedicated manufacturing team and a network of highly motivated representatives in North America. The BRC Group of Companies is active in six countries with manufacturing and renewable energy initiatives.
