Founded in 1947, E. F. Brewer Company began its operation as a custom tube fabricator constructing components and products for a wide range of industrial and consumer applications.
In the mid 1960s, the company introduced a comprehensive line of products for the medical market including, seating, step stools, IV poles, hampers, and instrument trays that became the basis for todays healthcare focus. Many of these products remain an important part of the product portfolio to this day.
In the 1980s, Brewer entered the dental market with the acquisition of Del-Tube Corporation. Del-Tubes dental seating products complemented Brewers medical seating lines and leveraged its design and manufacturing expertise. The Del-Tube name was subsequently merged into the Brewer brand name in the mid 1990s. It was at this time that E. F. Brewer was renamed The Brewer Company.
In 1996, Brewer embarked upon a business development strategy centered on our expertise in complex upholstery and seating design and manufacturing. Our focus remains on healthcare Original Equipment Manufacturers (OEMs) serving the medical and dental markets.
In 1999, Brewer acquired Healthcare Lighting and in 2001 launched the first in its line of innovative examination tables. Brewer quickly gained market share. Since 2001, Brewer has continued to design and manufacture exam table products with customer needs in mind. Our award winning exam and power table lines were the first in the industry to introduce the important features clinicians value highly today, such as: pass-through storage drawers, large steps, low wheelchair accessible heights, and higher weight capacities. Brewer examination tables focus on new technology and unique features that increase the safety, efficiency, and comfort for both patients and clinicians in the healthcare environment.
Today, we remain committed to the needs of the people on the front lines of healthcare and the patients they serve. We focus on bringing the safest, most advanced and highest quality safe patient handling solutions, advanced ergonomic seating and therapeutic support surfaces to the marketplace.
