Our Family of Companies 

Power Equipment Company is a member of the Bramco family of heavy equipment sales, service and rental companies. 

Brandeis Machinery and Supply Company was founded in the explosive urban and industrial growth of the 20th century. It was during this time there was huge demand for equipment that built skyscrapers, factories, houses, streets, stores and other public facilities. Brandeis offers  a diverse selection of construction, aggregate, road construction, scrap, recycling, port, mining, forestry, crane, demolition and earth moving equipment. These products are supported by an unmatched level of customer service from eight locations that cover Kentucky and Indiana.

Since its founding in 1908, Brandeis has been creating solutions for optimizing customer profits and minimizing downtime at construction sites, mines, and quarries. By giving customers what they need, when they need it, Brandeis remains a leading heavy equipment supplier and is committed to be your “Partner in Productivity.”

Recognizing the crushing and screening needs of its customers throughout the Brandeis and Power regions, fueled the creation of Bramco-MPS. Kentucky, Indiana, and Tennessee, top Bramco regions, are three of the top ten leading producing states for crushed stone, sand and gravel. To service this,  Bramco-MPS offers a full range of mobile and tracked crushing and screening equipment. Excellent manufacturer partners are only part of the equation, Bramco-MPS is a customer first full service provider. Specialized Bramco MPS sales and support staff means customers get knowledgeable, experienced people helping them making decisions on their material processing needs.

Bramco-MPS, while its own company within Bramco, serves as an extension of both Brandeis Machinery & Supply Company and Power Equipment Company’s products and services.

Certified Rental, started in 2001, is a separate rental division of Bramco focusing on the rental needs of our customers.
