Our Story

Brainerd Industries Inc. was founded in 1969 as a printed decorative metal trim manufacturing company. The company grew rapidly, and by 1972 moved from a small facility in rural Ohio to a cutting-edge facility located in the heart of Dayton.

As manufacturing followed the economic cycles of the 1970s, 80s, and 90s, Brainerd kept pace and developed several key markets in addition to its tradition of printed metal trim. Those markets included printed plastic trim and labels, as well as powder coated metal grilles and other specialty cosmetic stampings.

Brainerd's employees and staff have a willingness to evaluate each potential new project and come up with viable options for producing great parts at competitive prices. That attitude has enabled the company to survive and thrive in today's marketplace.

A new era for Brainerd began in February of 2008. After multiple expansions to the Dayton location, our company began to outgrow the plant. We relocated to a new facility 11 miles south of Dayton in the suburb of Miamisburg. The company's new home is now located in a contemporary business park just off of I-75.

With a larger facility, Brainerd has substantially increased in scale and ability to produce a wider range of parts. The company continues to focus on outstanding customer care and complete satisfaction, which has been the hallmark of our success. We continue to pursue new technologies and applications that will allow us to better serve our clients and give us a competitive edge. ​
