Chris Brown, President of Brown Industrial, has spent much of his life devoted to his third generation family business, a national leader in custom built trucks and trailers for the recycling and rendering industries.

Chris attended Wright State University and received an undergraduate degree in Mechanical Engineering.  He joined Brown Industrial in 1976 on a part time basis learning the basics of the company operations before becoming a full time employee in 1981.

In 2000, Chris and his brother Craig Brown took a chance buying the company’s first laser cutter and started in the job shop market.  This market grew quickly for Brown Industrial with it now being fifty percent of annual sales.

Chris and Craig stepped in as third generation owners in 2007 and have grown both the fabrication and the truck and trailer business into a multi-million dollar company.

Chris currently serves on the Sidney Shelby County Chamber Board of Directors and assists with civic opportunities within the Botkins community.
