AMERICAN MADE SINCE 1979
Our facility in Monticello, Minnesota employs nearly 100 individuals with opportunities in engineering, machining, logistics, shipping, sales, marketing and more. Being a smaller manufacturing company gives us leverage with customer service and feedback to produce the highest quality products in our respective markets. We sell through premium distributors and keep direct relationships with OEMS to ensure engineer-to-engineer relationships for rapid designing and production capabilities.
Brad studied tool and die making at Hennepin Technical School while working for a company that made mini donut machines. Brad, a young entrepreneur with an eye for innovation, started his own job shop to produce parts for the machines, and in 1979, formed Suburban Manufacturing, Inc. Brad’s wife and former Suburban Manufacturing CEO Mary came on board as a saw operator in the early 80s.
In 1992, a manufacturing company asked Brad to produce an oil pump, a product the company was originally importing from Germany. Brad produced the same chain oiler for half the price, and the first family product was born: the Lube Minder®. From there, Suburban Manufacturing developed Tsunami Compressed Air Solutions™ and Python Protective Sleeves & Coverings.
