Established in 1976 as a manufacturer of carbon brush holders, BGB began exporting in the early 1990s - now over 90% of turnover is achieved through the exportation of rotary goods and services such as slip ring assemblies, fibre optic rotary joints and other rotary transmission devices.
Specialising in the design from concept, manufacturing and marketing of our own range of niche market engineering solutions, we pride ourselves on developing quality assemblies in partnership with our customers for win-win outcomes. With two sites in Grantham and a second plant in Virginia USA, BGB has built a great reputation for its products worldwide. Predominant European markets include Scandinavia, Spain and Germany in which BGB lays claim as leader of rotary solutions in the renewable energy market, primarily within the wind industry.
The BGB team consistently push the boundaries of rotary technology, designing, manufacturing and prototyping world-leading solutions to rotary applications, proven by our continual involvement with future sustainable technologies such as renewable power and more recently Electric Vehicles.
We have consistently implemented Continuous Improvement (CI) activities and introduced company-wide Circular Economy initiatives and education, not only within BGB but to the local community with challenges to local schools to educate and raise environmental awareness.
With re-invigorated apprenticeship schemes, taking on a variety of school and higher education leavers in different positions around the company, not only in manufacturing, but also Marketing, Purchasing and Finance, we strive to educate, train and raise the next generation of world leading engineers.
Quality, design, relationship building and friendly family feel are our core competences that runs throughout the business and the backbone of the company since its origination.
