Companies don’t prosper for nearly nine decades without principles. These are ours – solving problems with precision-machined solutions. Since 1928, the quality of our metal work has been matched only by the devotion of our service. It makes for a better product, is smarter business, and is simply the right thing to do.
Our principles are proven through our process. We specialize in precision-engineered parts, and deliver through a culture of one-on-one collaboration. You have the freedom to work directly with programmers and designers, removing hassles and headaches from the process, saving time, and cutting costs by eliminating 11th hour mistakes.
We maintain an extensive inventory, with our most popular parts immediately available for lightening fast turnarounds. If we don’t have a part, we can reverse-engineer it to exact specifications using state-of-the-art CNC precision machining equipment.
We’re in the business of solving problems. Yours. And since 1928 we’ve built our name and our customer’s businesses with responsiveness, timeliness, collaboration and quality. Experience for yourself what customers have known and trusted for generations – the name A.W. Brueggemann means precision-machined solutions.
We’ve built our name on serving businesses like yours.
A.W. Brueggemann is a third generation family company, with 80% of the staff having at least 30 years of experience. And it all started with a man named Art. Arthur Brueggemann opened “Art’s Machine Shop” in 1928, specializing in general machine repair, engine rebuilding, and rebabbitting connecting rod bearings for Model T’s. In 1942, Art expanded his business to manufacture plain shaft connecting rod bearings, which continues to be our top seller.
Typical of his German heritage and midwestern upbringing, Art had a meticulous attention-to-detail and a tireless work ethic. Word quickly spread about his high-quality work, with farmers driving hours from Kansas just to have him repair their tractors. Despite the Dust Bowl and Depression, Art expanded his business, and sent his sons to pursue engineering degrees from Oklahoma State University (then Oklahoma A&M). Harold and Warren joined their father after graduating, and helped lead our company into new heights.
In 1979, to honor our namesake, “Art’s Machine Shop” became A.W. Brueggemann Company, Inc. In 1989, Warren, as President, expanded the family business to manufacturing bronze-backed, Babbitt-lined bearings for engines and compressors.
Today, Art’s granddaughter Jennefer Branch is leading our company into the 21st century – making us one of the few industrial parts manufacturers with female leadership. Nearly nine decades later, our company continues Art’s proud tradition of providing the highest quality work and the most devoted customer service.
