Tribute Customer Spotlight: Brennan Industries, Inc.

Brennan Logo markSince 1953, Brennan Industries has provided companies throughout the world with the highest-quality, critical flow components and is the largest independent manufacturer and supplier of hydraulic connectors in the United States. 

OfficeHeadquartered in Cleveland, Brennan Industries has grown from one facility to a global company with 450 employees and 17 distribution and manufacturing centers across the US, Canada, the U.K and China. 


Three Generations Continue to Grow the Company

Three generations of the Carr family have helped grow the company. CEO David D. Carr has led the company since 1959. The grandson of Russian and English immigrants, his lifestyle exemplifies the strong work ethic and traditional family values that his parents and grandparents instilled in him at an early age.

Brennan Industries began by manufacturing standard tube fittings and adapters. As their customer's needs expanded, so did the depths of their lines.brennan products

Soon Brennan was supplying O-ring face seal fittings and flareless bite-type fittings and as more foreign equipment entered the marketplace, they began providing international and DIN metric fittings.

Quality & Diversification Cornerstones of Company

Quality is what sets Brennan apart from other hydraulic and pneumatic fitting sources. “Quality is our most important offering,” states David M. Carr. “As an ISO 9001:2011 registered company, we're committed to quality in everything we do. From the design and engineering…through the entire manufacturing process…to the final inspection of parts, we adhere to the most stringent quality control practices to assure superior products.”


What's changed over the years is the number of products offered and the ways they get those products into the hands of customers. Expanding their offering to more than 50,000 different products, they've also grown their distribution to meet the demands of their customers through the addition of new locations and acquisitions.

Brennan Industries credits its responsiveness to the fact that it’s still a privately held company with key principals active in the day-to-day operations of the business. With the reputation as an industry leader, they pride themselves on their outstanding service levels in meeting the needs of their customers.

Brennan Expands into China, Canada and the U.K.

Over the years, Brennan has added distribution centers throughout the U.S. and Canada and opened a manufacturing facility in Xuzhou, China along with two other sales and sourcing locations in China.

The acquisition of TruFlow Hydraulic Components Ltd in 2016 provided a distribution center in the U.K. and the 2017 acquisition of Versa Fittings expanded Brennan's Canadian distribution and manufacturing capabilities. The corporate headquarters is expanding and will be completed in 2019. Brennan Team
