Why The Brown Company?

Our company, a leading shock absorber bag manufacturer, officially opened its doors in 2007.


From sorting and reworking to a big idea that TOOK OFF

The Brown Company started by providing quality services to local businesses, but shortly after our founding, we began producing a world-exclusive shock absorber bag. And the rest, they say, was history.

The initial idea was to deliver a product that would help in the control of aeration of oil inside a shock absorber. The resulting shock absorber bag was an instant hit. Word spread quickly and our bags that were once manufactured for American customers only quickly went global. We now produce high-quality and rigorously tested shock absorber bags that are now used around the world in a variety of applications and industries. 

We’ve been a family-owned company located in Findlay, Ohio since 2007. The vision of Mel and Pam Brown was to start a business that helped other businesses in our community and we’re proud to continue doing so today. 

We were honored to receive the prestigious Findlay Small Business Manufacturing Award in 2017 for success in the automotive/manufacturing industry.

We believe in a few simple philosophies: to deliver high-quality products that customers trust. To treat our customers, colleagues and others with respect. And that our customers’ success is also our success. 

We’re committed to helping our customers succeed today while also innovating and driving toward tomorrow.

Since 2007, we have been proud supporters of many organizations that are doing good in our community.

The Brown Company is proudly family owned and operated, and we’re a local business operating in Findlay, Ohio. 

Since inception, one of our company’s commitments has been to support and empower various organizations throughout our community and region. Giving back is not about talking the talk, it’s about walking the walk. 

Here are some of the local organizations we are proud to support:

  • Diamond Dawgs U-11 Baseball Team
  • Findlay Chamber of Commerce Member
  • Findlay F.O.P. Booster
  • Findlay Police Dept. Community Net
  • Fire Fighter Phil Child Safety Program
  • Flag City Corvettes Cartunes
  • Hope House
  • Habitat for Humanity
  • Metanoia Missions
  • Open Arms
  • Special Olympics
  • Susan G. Komen 1st Annual Race in Findlay

Changing the Game
