Company Profile Request update info.
Physician and surgeon Ivan E. Brown, Sr. launched Brown Manufacturing in 1965 after receiving a U.S. Patent for his invention, the Plastalume® Finger Splint. When sales of this new product increased, Dr. Brown moved operations from a workroom in his basement to a small building behind his residence. Under the leadership of Ivan’s son, Ivan E. Brown, Jr., the company continued to expand. The SEAL-TIGHT® Cast and Bandage Protector, introduced in 1989, was instrumental in the evolution of Brownmed, as the product’s success resulted in considerable sales and employment growth – and the need for increased manufacturing space. In 2010, Brownmed acquired IMAK Products Corporation and the portfolio of medical devices manufactured grew from 87 to 110.Today, Brownmed employs more than 70 people and manufactures and sells more than 130 different products to a worldwide market. Exports contribute approximately 15% of sales and Brownmed has distribution relationships in 130 countries.
