Homegrown Precision Manufacturing

Precision manufacturing is a rapidly emerging industry in Alabama. But, for Huntsville’s Brown Precision, it’s been emerging for over 30 years. And the company is now strategically expanding to the state’s southern aerospace corridor.


Brown Precision Manufacturing started out as a “little machine shop” in Huntsville in the 1960s, says Greg Brown, CFO, who co-owns the company with his brother, Dan Brown, president. Their CPA father handled the shop’s financials for years, and when the original owner planned to sell, the employees asked their accountant to purchase the business. The Browns’ father bought the business, then known as Simco Inc., in 1986.

At the time, the business was exclusively a government contractor, supplying spare parts to the Department of Defense. “We were constantly bidding on government jobs,” Greg Brown says. “Eventually, we got frustrated with government contracting and decided to do commercial work.” Read more...

Alabama Rocket Engineering Systems II Competition

Brown Precision was honored to support the recent Spaceport American Cup.

Here's a recap of the event:
It is my pleasure to tell you that our ARES II team successfully launched our rocket at Spaceport America just over a week ago. The rocket, flying on one of the largest motors at the competition, took to the skies and is estimated to have reached close to 25,000 ft AGL. 
Due to issues with the trajectory, loss of GPS signal, and timing of the event, we were not able to recover the rocket while we were on site. The Spaceport America crew has ensured us that they will continue the search in our absence. 
Despite these issues, our rocket drew a lot of attention and excitement from the judges and other teams at the competition. This rocket would not have been possible without your support. As we look toward the future, I hope your company continues to support our program as we strive to push boundaries and bring the University of Alabama to the forefront of collegiate rocketry.
