BRG Company History

Handcrafted in the USA

From the early beginnings in 1992, BRG Precision Products focused on technology products. Initial products were public safety software for fire station location modeling and graphics development. In 1996, a line of relatively low cost, electronic carillon church bells were developed. The BRG carillon church bells are still very popular today. BRG Precision Headquarters

BRG populates most of our circuit boards in-house with our pick-n-place machines
In 1998, BRG began offering radio controlled wall clocks that received a radio signal from Colorado.  BRG modified the clocks by extending the antenna so they could be used in commercial concrete and steel buildings. Digital clocks from other manufacturers were also added to the lineup of commercial time displays.  However, the clocks available at the time did not meet many customer requirements, and the manufacturers were reluctant to make any changes. Therefore, BRG began manufacturing new clock designs, incorporating the most requested features, coupled with the flexibility to add new features as needed.

In 1999, BRG was the first to offer wireless synchronized clock systems that utilized a digital mesh network.  Every clock received and retransmitted time updates which allowed low powered transmitters to cover any size building.

In 2000, BRG introduced a new line of commercial LED digital time displays. The new displays were developed with two very important goals in mind. First, the clocks must incorporate a very powerful and flexible processor that would perform the most requested time display requirements. Second, the manufacturing methods must provide the ability to produce nearly any type of time display, without additional engineering. Both goals were met and the displays became an immediate success.


BRG's circuit boards are processed through a flow solder machine.

 

In 2002, BRG Precision Products was awarded a 20 year contract by the U.S. Government to supply all agencies, worldwide, with custom time displays and other custom electronics.

In 2002, BRG was the first to offer wall clocks with temperature compensated oscillators that are 10 times more accurate than a common consumer wall clock.

In 2002, BRG developed a line of synchronized clock systems that utilized a central high power UHF transmitter to distribute time updates over a wide area.

In 2004, BRG expanded manufacturing facilities to meet product demand and to expand the product lineup. The new manufacturing facilities located in Derby, Kansas, exceeds 50,000 square feet.

In 2005, BRG initiated an International dealer network.  BRG now has dealers in many countries throughout the world. 

In 2006, BRG developed a comprehensive wireless Emergency Mass Notification (EMN) System.  BRG has installed EMN systems in many colleges and universities throughout the U.S. and Canada.


Close tolerences are kept in our manufacturing process with our laser cutting maching.


In 2010, BRG added a 32,700 square foot warehouse to our current facility. With this expansion, BRG is able make more room for production, stock more products to reduce product delivery times and meet the growing demand for our products.

In 2011, BRG introduces its DuraTime 2.4 GHz Wireless Synchronized Clock System.  This system was designed from the ground up to never fail.  It incorporates redundancy throughout, with no single points of failure.  In addition, it is easy install, requiring no configuration. The analog wall clocks are powered by common AA batteries, operating up to 15 years between battery changes.

In 2014, BRG was the first to offer selected wall clocks with oven controlled (OCXOA) oscillators that are 10,000 times more accurate than a common consumer wall clock.  BRG was the first to offer stand-alone wall clocks pre-synchronized to the U.S. Atomic clock, requiring no further adjustment for up to 20 years.  This feature virtually eliminates the need for GPS receivers,  network connections, radio receivers, sync wires and other methods commonly used to maintain accurate time.
