Great Lakes Firm Offers Extensive Inventory Of Marine Equipment Spare Parts

Jered Brown Brothers, formerly Jered Industries, has patterns, tooling, and over 300,000 original marine equipment and machinery drawings maintained at their Auburn Hills, Mich., facilities.

This invaluable inventory of both equipment and exact technical data places Jered Brown Brothers in a unique position to service the widest possible range of marine machinery and equipment on all types of vessels operating in the Western Hemisphere.

Machinery manufactured as early as 1867 can be serviced and parts supplied. The firm's location makes it particularly ideal for servicing vessels plying the Great Lakes. In addition, the facilities are staffed with experienced engineering personnel thoroughly familiar with very probably the most comprehensive line of marine equipment and spare parts in the world.

Equipment designed and manufactured by such world-renowned engineering companies as American Engineering, C.H. Wheeler, Baldwin- Lima-fiamilton and Jered Industries can still be serviced, because Jered Brown Brothers acquired the exclusive rights from these companies over 20 years ago, and have been continuously supplying both parts and repair expertise to U.S. and foreign commercial vessels as well as the U.S. and Canadian Navies.

There are important international connections as well. Prompt pricing and delivery can be provided for steering gear manufactured by John Hastie of Greenock, Scotland. International communications and downtime can be minimized for all parts including the Hele-Shaw pump. Retrofit kits are available for outfitting vessels with a rudder arrestor/ safety system. Prices and full information are available for both single and double ram units.

A member of the Vickers Marine Engineering Division, Jered Brown Brothers is one of eight companies.

Together they are joined with the British firms of John Hastie of Greenock, Brown Brothers, Michell Bearings, Vickers Marine Controls and Stone Vickers. From deck machinery to elevators, steering gear to specialized propeller shaft bearings, stabilizers to ram tensioners, every aspect of motion control systems for the marine industry is thoroughly covered. Also included in the group is SOFEC of Houston, Texas, which manufactures and designs all forms of single point mooring systems such as SALMs (single anchor leg mooring) and CALMs (catenary anchor leg mooring) systems. Vickers Marine Engineering offers one of the most extensive product line of any marine equipment manufacturer.

At a vessel owner's request, field servicemen or engineers will be assigned to survey repairs and provide sound recommendations. Follow-up includes prompt delivery of parts made to original specifications to assure quality material, proper fit and efficient operation.
