About Us

Our company

Many businesses come to us for industrial, safety, and janitorial equipment and supplies. Many businesses come to us for high-quality tools — and expert repairs.

Group OutsideBut, here’s what matters to us most…

All those companies come to us because of our exceptional customer support.

We put our 160 years’ experience in this business to work for you, our customers, every day — providing ideas, products and services that reduce costs and streamline your purchasing process.

From help with hard-to-find products to technical support and training to inventory management and supplier consolidation, we take time to learn about your business, so we can recommend just the right products and customize our value-added services in ways that help your company — and your day-to-day tasks — run more smoothly and cost-effectively.

There are a lot of good reasons to come to N.H. Bragg.

Our customers

Founded in 1854, N.H. Bragg began as a blacksmith supplier selling coal and bellows, anvils and hammering tools, as well as steel and buggy parts.

Today, the company distributes industrial, safety, and janitorial equipment and supplies and serves more than 3,500 customers throughout Maine and New Hampshire, from large pulp and paper mills, manufacturers, utilities and government entities to fleet operators, contractors, welding fabricators and local machine and repair shops.

N. H. Bragg represents more than 500 nationally-recognized suppliers, all of whom are leaders in product innovation and service, so we can bring our customers more than 300,000 high-quality products and any related repair and training support needed.

Our affiliates

To better serve our customers’ needs — and to help keep prices as low as possible — N.H. Bragg has been part of national buying/marketing networks for many years. These affiliations have allowed us to offer the advantages of national distributorships while maintaining local control and ownership – and the personal service and strong business relationships that mean so much to us.

Thanks to our membership in supplyFORCE, we’ve been able to offer national account and integrated supply contracts to customers looking to lower inventory and reduce transactional costs, while also providing partnership agreements to national accounts with multiple locations.

As a member of Affiliated Distributors, we're able to maintain a competitive cost structure with most of the premier manufacturers and to share best practices information with the leading North American distributors.
