Most people have become leery of using just any auto repair shop and prefer to stick with one they trust. In order to provide quality service their customers can trust while keeping their prices competitive, shop owners and fleet service companies need suppliers they can count on to keep their own costs low while gaining them access to readily available, high quality inventory.

grime_grabbersMUST TRY: Brown’s Busters, our own line of industrial cleaning products created especially for serious dirt, includes Grime Grabbers. Perfect for mechanics, these handy, hand wipes come in canisters for easy access to great smelling, industrial strength, cleaner-soaked, disposable cloths!

DO YOU STILL USE RAGS?! After repeated use and the expense of washing, rags don’t clean or absorb as well as they may once have, and never really get totally clean.  Instead try some of the fantastic SPC Brady products that we carry.  They’re always clean & disposable, come in rolls or boxes, and absorb up to 20 times their weight in liquids!  The added benefit…NO LAUNDERING REQUIRED!Brady Photo

SPILLS & LEAKS: Every seasoned mechanic knows that spills and leaks are unavoidable. Although you can’t prevent them, you CAN be prepared! Brown Engineering offers a complete line of spill containment products and granular absorbents to help you stay prepared for those messy situations when they arise.
