About Brasco

Since 1983 Brasco has supplied and installed thousands of shelters, offering standard "off-the-shelf” options as well as custom designs.  Our catalog includes bus stop shelters, bike shelters, cart corrals, solar lighting, advertising displays, digital signage and complementary benches, leaning rails and waste receptacles.  

Brasco is led by its 35-year veteran employee and owner, Doug Pew.  Our team works closely under one roof, and is comprised of the Sales, Engineering, Operations, Logistics, Human Resources, Project Management and Manufacturing teams.  Brasco is based out of Madison Heights, MI, where we do all machining, assembling and powder coating in-house.

Brasco began in the mid-1800's as a designer and fabricator of high-end copper storefronts, offering dozens of patented extrusions for retrofit store designs.  The company was headquartered in Chicago, IL, with a remote facility in Hamilton, Ontario.  While the company still serves the retail sector with entrance canopies and shopping cart corrals, our primary market has shifted to the public transit industry, with its growing demand for freestanding shelters and solar lighting.  

Below are excerpts from Brasco's 1912 catalog.

Over the past 20 years, Brasco has transitioned from being a traditional shelter manufacturer to a one-stop supplier of all things bus stop.  We’ve partnered with industry leaders of digital signage, remote monitoring controllers and LED lighting, to provide a simplified purchasing experience at the most competitive prices.  By integrating these technologies upfront, we reduce field labor and cost for our customers, avoid poor aftermarket retrofits, and provide a vandal resistant design that’s ready for the street.  

We believe that operating with integrity and transparency is vital to the health of the public transit industry and necessary to maintaining fair and honest competition.  All levels of our business function under these values, as quality products and a quality reputation are the highest priorities for our tea.  All products are proudly made in the USA and meet Buy America requirements.  Brasco is an iWay Certified Supplier, meeting the highest-level international operating requirements for environmental and social impacts in the workplace.
