Peter Brazier started the business in 1986 from a modest workshop in Rugby before quickly moving to larger premises, then finally to our current headquarters and manufacturing plant in Coventry. Peter’s industry knowledge and trade contacts following a successful engineering and aerospace career stood him in good stead to develop and grow business at PAB, automotive industry leaders such as Aston Martin and Jaguar cars have successfully been retained for over 20 years and serve as testament to the skilled production and trusted partnership qualities that the Brazier’s have strived to achieve since 1986.
In an age where time served skills are diminishing, PAB Group has successfully managed to get the balance right when it comes to lean engineering, technology and knowledge gained through apprenticeship.
Mark Brazier alongside other members of his team, served an apprenticeship at Rugby and then at Coventry, covering every facet of an efficient manufacturing business before progressing through the company to become Managing Director.
Mark has his grandfather; Bill to thank for starting off a 3 generation career path in the automotive and aerospace industries, Bill worked for Rolls Royce in Coventry during the peak of its production days.
Now over 20 years later through significant investment and growth the PAB Group employs in excess of 110 personnel and has consistently increased turnover year on year. It now serves the automotive, defence, aerospace and HVAC industries.
Our commitment to outstanding quality and accreditation has always been paramount.
Our business quality systems are recognised and certified to ISO 9000/2000 and ISO 14001 and manufacturer standards TS 16949. Achieving PPM (parts per million) manufacturing scores consistently ahead of world class standards is testament to the accreditations.
To help reduce our overall impact on the world around us through all paths of life, we have begun to make all our staff aware of where our carbon emissions are coming from, and actively encourage them to make greener choices at home and in the workplace
We have goals to install a 300kWp system on our site, which will help offset our carbon emissions from grid energy consumption by providing a source of green energy.
As part of our recognition of our social and environmental responsibilities, we have begun to introduce new company policies. One of these is to perform regular tests on our compressors to identify any leaks, or a drop in efficiency. Compressors are recognised to be one of our largest energy consumers, so ensuring we keep them at peak efficiency will help reduce our overall consumption and emissions.
