Bostwick-Braun Industrial

The Bostwick-Braun Company is a family of hardware, industrial, and specialty distribution companies directly supporting customers in 22 states. Bostwick-Braun, in its original form, was founded in 1855. For many generations, it has evolved and prospered because of the hard work, dedication, and integrity of the people who make up the company. From the top down, every person at Bostwick-Braun has a stake in its success, and everyone is empowered to react to customers’ needs. This level of personal service has been the foundation for a company that continues to grow and excel in this industry. Over the past decade, The Bostwick-Braun Company has acquired other distributors and specialty industrial companies. All of these new “family members” were chosen with due diligence and sought out because they shared the same values and principles as the original company. They were brought under the Bostwick-Braun “umbrella” because they were determined to broaden the selection and capabilities that we were able to offer our customers.

Bostwick-Braun Industrial is a business unit of the Bostwick-Braun Company with 5 divisions under its wing. We are a distributor of manufacturing, construction, metal working, and safety products. Each company brings its own unique value to Bostwick-Braun Industrial and creates a conducive package for our customers.
