At the heart of Topper Industrial lies family; since 1994, the Brown family has been leading the company towards
international success. The patriarch, Ed Brown, CEO, has infused Topper Industrial with innovation, passion,
and drive, with such traits similarly being shared amongst the following generation. As such, Topper Industrial
has earned the title of Best Material Handling Equipment Manufacturer 2022 – Wisconsin.

With in excess of 20 years of experience developing lean material handling solutions for the supply chain, it could
be said that Topper Industrial, a family-owned business, is at the top of its field. Incorporated in 1994 by Ed Brown, Topper Industrial was established with the intention to become a leading custom metal fabrication and weld shop. In the space of four years, the company had achieved this goal and more, and had become one of the top global producers of industrial carts.

Indeed, early in its career the company rose to international prestige, and as of 2022, it is a recognisable designer and producer of all the machinery required to move and deliver materials line side. Moreover, Ed Brown continues to serve as Topper Industrial’s CEO, with his children taking leading roles in the business; Ryan Brown became President in 2010; Cynthia is the CFO; Eric acts as the Vice-President of Research and Development; Jillian works as the company’s Marketing Manager; and Jenna is the Safety Manager.

Whilst the company has evolved in a plethora of ways since its establishment, its mission – to design and build the most innovative, well built, safe equipment that will make people’s jobs easier and safer – has remained fundamentally the same. Topper Industrial strives to produce quality equipment that users can depend upon. In fact, reliability has become increasingly important for the business over time, as the company endeavors to manufacture products that provide tangible benefits to the client’s work life. Yet Topper Industrial has had to overcome several challenges throughout its lifetime, with hurdles including rising labor and material costs, supply chain delays, and of course, the Covid-19 pandemic. Whilst many of the team members did have to take time away due to the virus, it did highlight the team’s ability to work flexibly as the information and advice around covid changed. In addition, during this turbulent period, the team worked harmoniously, relying on each other to pick up where and when others couldn’t. Henceforth, 2022 is expected to follow and expand upon Topper Industrial’s previous success. Through its familial foundation, the
company boasts a stronger commitment to investment for future goals.

Furthermore, the company is consistently growing and expanding inorder to match rising demand. The company has recently invested inbuilding a high-tech extension complete with cutting edge equipment
that will further streamline production. Success has come naturally to Topper Industrial, with much of this
stemming from the strong support network that backs it. Therefore, it is safe to say that its future will exceed the successes of Topper Industrial’s past and will further push the company up the ranks of the international market.
