Who We Are
Brodeur Machine Company, Inc. is a 4th generation, family-owned business in New Bedford, MA. Early on, Brodeur Machine’s services focused on the thriving South Coast New England textile and fishing industries. As the economic climate and technology evolved, we too changed our concentration to focus on the burgeoning manufacturing sector.
We catered to any and all maintenance and repair needs, in addition to custom machine building, but as the mills closed their doors and the landscape changed yet again, we knew that we needed to adapt our business model.
We assessed the needs around us and began to supplement the lost manufacturing work by developing relationships with major utilities; servicing them for scheduled maintenance and emergency repairs. The growing precision metal and steel processing industries provided another opportunity to further diversify our skills. We began custom designing and building various types of metal-processing equipment.
Nearly 100 years later, our business has remained customer centric and quality driven. We now concentrate largely on contract manufacturing for a variety of industries and continue to grow through the experience gathered by a century of service.

FRANK F, 5 YEARS
“A lot of the work that we get is pretty complex, many shops don’t want to touch it. That’s definitely our niche. We owe a great deal of that mindset to Mark, Raymond Jr., and the rest of the folks who came before. They are what pushed us to where we are and set us apart from other shops!”
