Milestone anniversary for Brammer

Posted on 23 Feb 2016 by Victoria Fitzgerald

After notching up more than 600 years of industry experience across more than 20 technical and product specialists, Brammer’s Fluid Power Solutions team is marking 15 years since its inception.

Led by national technical manager, Terry Davis – who alone has dedicated more than 25 years of his career to Brammer, the Fluid Power Solutions team partners with the manufacturers of pneumatics and hydraulics to offer an added-value service to customers in sectors as diverse as food and drink; aggregates; automotive, and rail.

With expertise in product specification; energy efficiency standards; preventative maintenance, and health & safety, the team also manages an industry-leading portfolio of more than 22,000 product lines.

Davis explained: “When customers purchase a product from Brammer, they’re not just buying a pump; actuator; filter, or hose.

“They gain access to one of the industry’s most experienced technical specialist teams, who are able to support them throughout – from initial specification and installation to retrofits, troubleshooting, repair and maintenance.

“Our aim is always to reduce total acquisition cost, improve production efficiency and reduce working capital – whether we’re dealing with the most complex hydraulic or pneumatic instrumentation, or a seemingly simple hose or fitting.”

Brammer is an authorised distributor of fluid power products from more than 1,500 of the world’s leading manufacturers, including global brands including Festo; IMI Precision Engineering; SMC; Parker Hannifin, and Bosch Rexroth.

Able to offer audit, improvement, monitoring and refurbishment of existing systems, as well as the ability to spec-out and product-manage the design and commissioning of bespoke systems, Brammer’s service is backed by full manufacturer warranty and technical support.

Iain Hanson, general manager – Fluid Power at Brammer, who himself is celebrating 30 years of service, commented: “Although the Brammer name is synonymous with extensive choice and quality of industrial maintenance, repair and overhaul (MRO) products, our technical specialists are less well known.

“Utilising  proactive maintenance techniques and advanced analytical tools including air leak surveys and ultrasound monitoring, the team achieves significant cost savings for customers every day, demonstrating that our service does not begin and end with the sale of a product.

“As a result, we’ve recently been shortlisted in the Distributor of the Year category at the inaugural Motion Control Industry Awards which celebrate achievement and excellence in the sector.”

Brammer is the largest distributor of fluid power products to UK manufacturers, holding more than 7,000 fluid power products in UK stock with additional overnight access to more than 1.1m more, covering process, instrumentation, pneumatics, vacuum and hydraulics.
