Fear no challenge

More than our name . . . Brave is our approach to problem-solving.


When it comes to solving control and engineering problems, one of our most valuable resources is a collective positive attitude. The people of Brave Controls and Engineering are can-do professionals.

Perhaps you’re searching for an engineered solution in food/beverage, industrial or bio-pharmaceutical processing. Brave is fearless in the pursuit of solid, benefit-oriented results—tightened tolerances, eliminated production choke points or optimized processes.

Brave gets it. Partner with us, and you won’t have to explain your urgency in removing high fructose corn syrup from your process. And we understand exactly what an extra half percent of moisture in a product can do to your bottom line. Attitude without resources is just good intentions. Resources without attitude are wasted potential. Together, they are Brave Controls and Engineering. Give us a challenge.
