Our History

Brown Products, an outgrowth of Brown Manufacturing Corporation, moved into its new facility in October of 2007. Within this new, modern facility it has continued to improve and expand a time-tested line of outdoor power equipment that has existed since 1985.

Brown Manufacturing Corporation was founded in 1944 by Paul and Sara Brown. Their first product was a mule drawn log skidding device which was well received by all the portable sawmill owners throughout the southeast United States. In 1948 they began a transition from the logging industry to the farm machinery industry, as the nation’s farms were rapidly becoming mechanized.

The Outdoor Power Equipment division was added to the product line of Brown Manufacturing Corporation in 1985 to address the landscaping and miniature trenching needs of the professional landscaper, along with cable TV/Satellite Dish, irrigation and propane gas industries. The products manufactured in this division consisted of the TrenchMaster, BedEdger and EdgeMaster machines.

In 2007, continued growth throughout all product lines required a restructure of Brown Manufacturing Corporation. It was decided that the Outdoor Power Equipment division would become a separate entity. Brown Products, Inc. was formed with William P. Brown as President and the division was relocated into a new facility in October of 2007. Brown Manufacturing Corporation retains all products within the agricultural and utility industry and continues to manufacture these products at the original Ozark, AL location with Richard C. Brown as President.

Brown Products, Inc., continues to manufacture the previous outdoor power products and has added numerous new products, such as walk behind brush cutters, specialized mulch bed machines, a ride-on blower vacuum, a parking lot vacuum system, various cable laying machines, and numerous blower attachments for lawn care. Other new products include machines/attachments for the sealcoat/asphalt industry.
