Captain A.R. Brown founded Brown McFarlane in 1889, and joined forces with George McFarlane, a naval architect, to establish A R Brown McFarlane & Co Ltd based in Glasgow. The company was initially involved in building ships for the Japanese on Clydeside, Glasgow and in the export of machinery and other capital equipment to Japan.
A London office opened in 1915, followed by more offices in Antwerp, New York, Burma and Tokyo all supported by a worldwide agency network. In the meantime business became more centred on the supply of steel products. Today, 125 years on, the founding family still owns the business with Captain Brown's great, great, grandson's representing the fifth generation of Browns to be active in the business.
Over the last 20 years in addition to our long heritage in steel supply we have also developed industry leading prefabrication and cutting processes within our three acre stoke facility and supply many of the world's leading companies to exacting quality standards. Our team of highly trained and experienced sales engineers, procurement and processing specialists provide you with the answers to your questions and the solutions to your problems.
