SMG Our Story

our story

Fueled by an entrepreneurial spirit and knack for innovation, Brad and Mary established their own job shop in 1979 to craft parts for mini donuts machines, eventually giving it the name of Suburban Manufacturing, Inc.

Fast forward to 1992, when a manufacturing company approached Brad with a request to manufacture an oil pump, a product they were previously importing from Germany. Brad managed to produce the same chain oilier at half the cost, thus marking the inception of the family's first product: the LubeMinder®. This success story paved the way for the creation of Tsunami Compressed Air Solutions™ and Python Protective Sleeves & Coverings.

Although Suburban Manufacturing is no longer under family ownership, the core values instilled by the Barger family continue to resonate throughout the company, shaping our culture and guiding our principles each day.
