About Braun and Company Limited

Braun and Company offer an extensive range of innovative medical and security products. 

Braun was established in 1848 as a precision engineering company, and has since developed to become industry leaders in medical and security equipment.

We pride ourselves on the quality of our products, including our renowned Self Compensating Pneumatic Tourniquet – originally invented in 1963, and now reproduced all over the world.

Braun International differs from other medical and security equipment suppliers as we provide a comprehensive after-sales service as well as product training courses, enabling you to maintain and repair your equipment with confidence.

Mr A. R. Shepherd began his engineering career at Braun under the management of Mr Braun Jr. – son of the company’s original founder. He proved to be a naturally skilled and enthusiastic employee, being continually promoted throughout his time at the company.

Upon Mr Braun’s retirement in 1936, Shepherd bought the company with a view to further develop its standing within the engineering industry. He decided to focus on the production of medical equipment, to great success, and Braun swiftly became the main supplier of medical parts to BOC.

One of Shepherd’s better known creations include the Self-Compensating Pneumatic Tourniquet (has been written about in the Lancet publication), which continues to be produced by companies worldwide today.

In 1974 Mr Shepherd’s son, Barry, succeeded his father in running Braun International. He decided to make the addition of veterinary and security equipment to the company’s product portfolio.

Today, Braun continues to be a strong presence in the export market with its wide range of medical, veterinary and security products and also Turnkey project skills.

Unlike many other companies, Braun has maintained its personal approach to customers whilst growing rapidly in size. Members of the Shepherd family work within the company as part of Braun International’s long-standing team of skilled employees.
