We’re Thrilled to Announce the Launch of Our New Logo!

We are so excited to share our new logo with the world finally! After many months of brainstorming and fine-tuning, this logo perfectly reflects our brand values and aesthetics. It is a simple yet eye-catching icon that encapsulates the best innovative design, ensuring maximum impact. This logo marks an exciting chapter as we continue further strengthening and spreading our company!

Broudy Supply Co

A Short History; the Broudy name itself is over 100 years old. We started as a hardware supply company solely in Philadelphia. Over the years, we’ve gone through quite a few transitions expanding up and down the East Coast till we found our niche today; building technology.

In the early 90s, we evolved from exclusively a hardware supply company into a plumbing supply, Broudy Supply Co., and at that time, our logo was straightforward, with no thrills. Then as we continued to grow in the HVAC space, the name Broudy Precision evolved, as did our logo, into what people know as the checkmark logo. Then, further down the line, we narrowed that focus again, including mechanical equipment and controls while preserving our checkmark logo and name, with some refresh.

Broudy Precision Logo

Now we’ve reached a point where innovation and technology are two driving forces that have allowed us to reach new heights. As a result, our focus today has shifted to primarily building automation and building technology. As a result of these changes, we have we have decided to re-brand with a new logo to reflect our commitment to advancing our field, but most importantly, who we are today.

Technological advancement in the building space has had a significant impact on the way we do things now. Although we have been adapting to change since the beginning, our focus has become much more on building innovation than in previous years. Therefore, we wanted a logo reflecting our evolution.

Our goal was to create a simplistic yet innovative logo representing our collective ambition, something we can all look at for a moment and realize how far we’ve come. It’s also an opportunity to stay focused on the future and strive toward achieving even greater things. So, instead of paying someone outside of our industry to create it, we brainstormed and used our talent to design it in-house. It’s certainly no easy endeavor to refresh our brand, but it is the thing that keeps us on the forefront and striving for more.

Nonetheless, we’re excited to have this fresh new image as we strive toward continued success, and it represents everything that makes us unique. So we are excited for everyone to see it.

Why Sustainability and ESG Matter to Broudy Precision

At Broudy Precision, we are committed to staying at the forefront of building technology and embracing change in the industry. We strive to help develop more innovative commercial buildings that are environmentally friendly and meet our client’s needs. We strongly emphasize ESG — Environmental, Social, and Governance. ESG is essential in helping us profile our company on its standards, ethics, and core values. Let’s dive into why ESG matters for Broudy Precision.

The Need for Sustainability

Sustainability is becoming increasingly crucial as awareness around indoor air quality, employee satisfaction, production levels, and overall company integrity grows. Unfortunately, commercial buildings are regularly made the villain of sustainability due to their propensity to leak energy. If they haven’t already, many cities around the country will soon be instituting a mandatory building benchmark system. Buildings over 50,000 sq ft will have to profile their building each year to meet or exceed a 75 Energy Star rating. If a 75 is not met, fines will be sanctioned. This governance will force building owners to emphasize sustainability, and our goal at Broudy Precision is to help them achieve it.

ESG

The building technology industry is a massive player in ESG. Our job is to ensure workspaces are comfortable, clean, safe, and conducive to productivity. We accomplish this by providing innovative products, technologies, and robust training to ensure the Building Automation System will create an energy-efficient building with a healthy indoor environment to meet ESG standards. In addition, we can use this system to measure, track, chart, and visualize the building’s health. 

By doing all these things and more at Broudy Precision, we demonstrate a commitment to environmental stewardship and social responsibility to ensure employee satisfaction and productivity in all our projects. This commitment has made us one of the leaders in sustainable building technology today.


Governance Standards

ESG initiatives don’t just focus on environmental sustainability; they also address governance standards within a company itself. At Broudy Precision, we prioritize transparency when deciding how our business operates. We strive for excellence by setting high standards for ourselves regarding customer service, product quality, and ethical operations. This commitment shows potential customers that they can trust us with their business, knowing their goals will be held to the highest standards.

At Broudy Precision, we understand how important it is for businesses today to stay ahead of trends regarding environmental sustainability and ethical practices. This is why we take ESG initiatives seriously and strive for excellence in environmental stewardship, social responsibility, and governance standards. By doing this, we want to show current and potential customers that they can trust us with their business, knowing that their interests will always be kept top-of-mind. With these initiatives in place, we look forward to leading the way in sustainable building technology today.
