Brennan is celebrating 65 years in business in 2018, and as we look towards the future as a company, we also would like to look back and reflect on the past 65 years.
Brennan started out in 1953 with just one facility, and has grown to be a global company with 17 locations and over 450 employees!
In the past 65 years we have grown, expanded and changed as a company and our success wouldn't be possible without the help of our amazing customers and dedicated employees.
Thank you to everyone who has been with us on this journey & cheers to the future!
