The B&R Team represents a cohesive unit working in three distinct areas.  Our sales consultants are industry leading experts on automotive equipment.  Whether it’s a simple 2 post above ground lifts or a specialized and custom paint booth, our sales consultants have over 80 years of combined experience to make sure you make the right purchase.

Our installation department, with fully trained and specialized installers on staff, will make sure that your purchase is installed to manufacturer specifications.

And our service department, with a staff of full-time factory trained technicians, will perform preventative maintenance to keep your equipment operating at its peak performance level and repair any equipment breakdowns you may encounter.

All these departments working together form the B&R team, with the mission to fully satisfy their common customer, our B&R customer, over the lifetime of their equipment ownership.


B&R was started in 1971 by Bart Twiford to provide the best-in-class equipment to the Washington D.C. metropolitan area automotive market.  Its focus was on delivering the best equipment with the best customer service in the marketplace.  51 years later and now a Parsons Ventures Inc. company, this commitment to top-of-the-line quality product and superior customer service has only grown stronger.  Today, our company of over 40 employees continues to work to provide our customers with an experience unsurpassed in the industry.  Over the years we have grown our services to include facility design and project management, installation of all types of equipment and automotive mechanical systems, and a service department with factory trained and experienced technicians.  To discuss your equipment needs contact us today.
