A little bit about B&R

Over a 60-year span, B&R has built a reputation for excellence in the design and manufacture of enclosures. Everything we have learned in that time, we've poured into our products and relationships.

As an independent, Australian-owned business, B&R champions the virtues of quality, service and value. Combined with our unrivalled industry and application knowledge, we are in a unique position to meet the needs of our clients.

The company encompasses four divisions: B&R Industrial, B&R Data ICT, B&R Hazardous Areas and B&R Residential Commercial. Each division has a focus on unique needs of different market segments. Together these divisions share the strengths, resources and experience of the founding company to provide attentive customer service, innovative design and superior quality products at a competitive price.

Quality is assured with B&R’s certification to AS/NZS ISO9001:2000. We have also won the National Gold Award for Quality for a large business. B&R is also accredited by the Australian Stainless Steel Association as a superior producer of stainless steel products, working to industry best practice.

Our occupational health and safety management system is certified to AS/NZS 4801:2001.

At B&R we are justifiably proud of our products, and we strive to ensure that you have what you need, when you need them. We have a network of offices and distributors throughout Australia. Wherever you are, you will be able to buy B&R products nearby. If you need more information on the location of your closest reseller, call or contact us for directions.
