Our History

BPI was founded in 1964 as a machine shop under the name of SEMCO, Inc., in a small industrial building (8,000 sq. ft.) located in Huntsville, AL. The business became a client of Mr. Roland E. Brown, CPA, in 1976. He is current Chairman of BPI and former CFO of Intergraph Corporation.


In June 1992, his son Daniel T. Brown, BSME, 1992, from The University of Alabama in Huntsville (UAH), became company president. Over the next several years, Mr. Brown made large investments in the company. Greg Brown (his other son) joined the company in 1995, and he and Dan made very effective use of this investment in employee training and acquisition of state-of-the-art machinery.
