Brawn's Youngest Engineer
October 17, 2014, Holland, Michigan - Holmes Elementary School in Spring Lake, Michigan asked their second graders to write a Career Day report. Garret Nordman chose to write about becoming an engineer and as part of his learning experience he was able to see what it was like to be an engineer at Brawn Mixer. Matt Kammeraad, Ike Kuiper and Dan Keller gave Garrett a tour of the facility and explained what some of their day to day responsibilities are as an engineer. "I really liked learning about how to become an engineer and I wear my hat and safety goggles all the time," said Garrett.

New Mixers Save Time and Money in Production
May, 2014 - The power or energy applied to a mixing process is always an essential
component to successful results. This may seem like a very obvious concept, but
after 32 years in the business of providing mixing solutions, I am certain that very
few mixer users understand how the horsepower of a mixer motor actually effects
and is applied to their process.
