Who We Are 


Brandeis Machinery & Supply Company is a subsidiary of Bramco Inc., headquartered in Louisville, Kentucky. Brandeis, together with its sister company, Power Equipment Company, constitutes one of the largest construction and mining equipment distribution networks in the United States. Together they have fourteen branches throughout Kentucky, Indiana, Tennessee, Northern Mississippi and Eastern Arkansas. Brandeis offers the most complete line of mining and construction equipment and services available. We are committed to doing what it takes to make superior product support a reality.
