Phil Burger founded Burger Engineering in 1978 after working nearly ten years as a mechanical engineer in the plastics industry. In the early years, Phil designed and built special equipment for manufacturers. In 1982, the company began building injection molds for area plastics companies. During its years as a mold-builder, Burger Engineering developed several unique and useful accessories for molders, and launched the Smartflow® product line.
Mark Brown joined the firm in 1994 as General Manager. He helped grow the firm in a significant way, and in 2002, Mark became the Vice President. We changed the company name to Burger & Brown Engineering. Mark repurposed company strengths by ceasing mold-building operations and establishing the High Speed Micro-Milling Department to serve a new customer base. The Injection Molding department was launched in 2004 to provide additional manufacturing capacity. In 2005, Mark purchased a majority position in the company and became the President.
Shortly after, the company moved from Olathe, Kansas into the current building in Grandview, Missouri. After successfully weathering the Great Recession of 2009, the company began a phase of renewal and growth. A major renovation completed in 2016 increased the manufacturing and office space from 30,000 square feet to 50,000 square feet, making room for additional reorganization and expanded services.
Corey Brown joined the firm in 2014 as a Project Engineer, and became Engineering Manager in 2015. Corey transitioned to Vice President in charge of daily operations in 2017 and company President January 1, 2021.
