  • A history of Braude

    1957 Founded in London by Erich Braude, trading in steel stocks as E. Braude (London) Ltd.

    1973 Dan Welsby, a successful stainless steel tube manufacturer, purchased E. Braude (London) Ltd

    1974 Under the guidance of Dan Welsby, Braude moved to its current site in Sandhurst, Berkshire. The company became a distributor of chemical pumps and Teflon heat exchangers to the steel and metal finishing industries.

    1978 The company moved into manufacture and the Nautilus Teflon Heat Exchanger was introduced; a product which could withstand the demands of highly corrosive liquids used in the steel and metal finishing industries, and for which Braude became well known.

    1980 The Polaris Electric Immersion Heater was launched, and through a rapid growth in sales, became one of the core products alongside the Nautilus Heat Exchanger. This earned a reputation for Braude as being as thermal process equipment specialists.

    1993 Jet Steam external tank heating system for corrosive liquid was added to the growing range of products, further enhancing the Braude reputation, in particular when it comes to the heating and cooling of highly corrosive liquids.

    1997 Company first accredited to BS EN ISO 9002.

    2002 Quality system upgraded to BS EN ISO 9001.

    2008 The Braude range of products was introduced to the steel processing industry in India.

    2009 David Snoxhill and Carlos Avila took over Braude with the objective of expanding the range of heaters, heat exchangers, controllers and pumps to be able to meet all the needs of their customers and continued its growth, especially across the overseas, Indian and the Far Eastern markets.

    2016 Following a successful year, the acquisition of Braude by Heatrod Elements Ltd, a member of the Backer Group, part of the Nibe Elements division of Nibe Industries AG, assured the future of E. Braude(London) Ltd.

    Design, development and manufacture of the Braude range of products still continues to this day in Sandhurst, Berkshire, UK.
