Who We Are

Brodeur Machine Company, Inc. is a 3rd generation, family owned business in New Bedford, MA. Early on Brodeur Machine’s services were 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 in a century of business.
