Our Factories and Warehouses

Unrivaled manufacturing and inventory set us apart.

Brady People ID’s factories and warehouses give us a broad product offering and unequaled on-hand inventory.

  • Global sites include the United States, Mexico and China
  • We manufacture the majority of our own goods
  • Next-day delivery available for thousands of products

At Brady People ID, our quality products and top-notch customer service set us apart from our competitors. However, we also excel in two other areas our competition can’t match: manufacturing and warehousing. With multiple facilities in China and North America, Brady People ID is able to offer on-hand inventory, quality control and from-the-source purchasing that other organizations simply can’t beat.

Brady People ID's warehouses offer unrivaled on-hand inventory

Our warehouse and manufacturing center in Tijuana, Mexico, is stocked with thousands of SKUs, giving us the most on-hand inventory in the industry. This inventory enables us to pass several benefits onto our partners, benefits our competitors can’t match.

These benefits include:

  • Drop-shipping: Our inventory means we have a variety of products available to be shipped on site at all times. Our warehousing and shipping centers allows us to package and send goods directly to your customers, saving you time.
  • Fast access to thousands of products: Because our warehouse is in North America, we are able to provide access to thousands of products quickly. Without the need to wait weeks for products from overseas, partners can avoid investment in their own warehouses and on-hand inventory.
  • Speedy shipping: Our warehouse’s convenient Tijuana location combines with thousands of on-hand SKUs to allow us to offer next-day shipping on a number of products.
  • An online look: Partners are also able to get a virtual look at our inventory with Brady Warehouse, an online tool that allows partners to instantly determine shipping dates and inventory status on stock products for orders large and small.

International manufacturing facilities with American standards

Our factories produce the majority of our goods, including:

  • Badge reels
  • Badge holders
  • Strap clips
  • Lanyards
  • Self-expiring visitor badges
  • ID cards

While international factories usually have a negative connotation, you can rest easy: Brady People ID is a company with strong ethical values and adheres to American regulations at all of our facilities, meaning our international factories meet the same health and safety standards as factories in the United States. Our factories have passed numerous third-party audits as we work constantly to ensure that our facilities have safe, ethical working conditions.

Our factories employ more than 400 employees who perform a variety of tasks, including basic manufacturing, dye sublimation, weaving, silk screen printing, digital printing, warehousing and shipping.

Brady People ID offers quality manufactured goods, made the right way

Getting products at a reasonable price shouldn’t come with guilt about how those products were manufactured. With our factories, you can rest easy knowing your goods were created in safe, modern factories that are both socially and environmentally conscious.

Our Xiamen facility is ISO 9001:2008 certified, showing that our Management System meets and exceeds Bureau Veritas’ high standards. Our facility also has its Work Safety Standardization from the Chinese government.

Further safety and quality precautions include:

  • Our factories are compliant with all major U.S. Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) regulations.
  • Our sites are monitored by third-party groups to ensure environmental accountability and are frequently visited by retail and wholesale customers who certify that our factory meets their licensing standards.
  • We are careful with chemicals and hazardous substances: all raw materials and packaging are tested to ensure that they don’t contain dangerous substances like lead, mercury, cadmium and hexavalent chromium.

Our modern factories are dedicated to providing a safe, worker-friendly environment for our employees. We provide modern equipment and comprehensive safety protocols to ensure that our workers can produce your goods as efficiently and safely as possible.

Brady People ID is proud to manufacture select American-made goods

Brady People ID takes pride in being an American company based in Billerica, MA. We are part of Brady Corp (NYSE: BRC), a Wisconsin-based manufacturer with over a century of experience in the identification, security and safety products markets.

Because we are an American company, we take pride in selling a variety of domestically made products. Our partners benefit from the increased peace of mind that comes with knowing products were produced responsibly and can also pass the confidence and brand recognition that comes with a “Made in the USA” logo along to their customers.

American-made products include:

  • Teslin™ Badge Buddies
  • BradyProx™ proximity cards
  • TEMPbadge™ expiring badge products
  • CardProtectors™ holders

Eliminate the middleman: Get your products directly from the source

Because we do our own manufacturing for the majority of the products we sell, we are able to offer a direct line between our partners and our goods. With no middleman, we are able to offer our products at competitive prices. More importantly, we control the quality of our goods from start to finish. Because we are involved in the process from sourcing to fulfillment, we maintain a consistent level of quality across our product line that you won’t see from other suppliers.

Also, with other independent overseas suppliers, it’s hard to know what you’re going to get. You take a lot of risk sourcing your products overseas, and numerous challenges, such as language barriers, taxes and clashes with local traditions or holidays, inevitably come up.

With Brady People ID, you know you’re dealing with an American company that you can trust with your business, trademarks and intellectual property. We communicate with our factories and warehouses on a daily basis and will provide you with an ease of doing business that is unmatched in the industry.

Let us get you to market: Brady People ID offers custom manufacturing

Our powerful manufacturing and distribution capabilities allow us to offer another advantage: the ability to conceptualize and develop products and solutions from manufacturing through delivery to market. Brady People ID has the capability to be your identification products manufacturer, and will work with you every step of the way.

If you have an idea for a new style of badge reel, or have a specific need that can’t be met by our existing offering, we can bridge that gap and create the solution you need. Manufacturing from scratch overseas is expensive and confusing. Because we have our own factory, we can be your domestic connection to an efficient and affordable overseas manufacturing service.
