who we are

Suburban Manufacturing Group is a diversified industrial equipment and textiles manufacturer. We are best known for our three brands within fluid power: Tsunami Compressed Air Solutions, LubeMinder Automatic Oil & Grease Systems and Python Protective Sleeves + Covers. What started as a small contract machining company in central Minnesota, has quickly turned into a large enterprise serving multiple industries across the globe.

Based in Monticello, Minnesota our 45,000-square-foot, state-of-the-art manufacturing facility (soon to be 60,000) was built to suit the demands of our standard products and custom part orders. Our build-to-order system enables us to meet any custom solution your business may require. We are a proud American manufacturer.

About-Us-Tunnel

our story

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.
