Facilities and History

by B/R Instrument

In 1966, Roger Roark, Sr. and Harry Brown, Jr. started B/R Instrument. The initials B and R come from the two last names of the founders Brown and Roark. In the early years, the company made general glassware. In 1968, the company received permission to make spinning band distillation systems under a DuPont patent. Since then the company has grown steadily in the distillation and laboratory equipment markets.
