 About Us

The Brainard-Nielsen Marketing you see today is the culmination of decades of dedication to the electronics community.

In 1978, Dick Brainard and Bob Wilson merged their rep firms to create Brainard-Wilson Marketing. After many years working with Brainard-Wilson as a manufacturer’s Sales Manager, Paul Nielsen joined Brainard-Wilson as a salesman in 1984, purchased the company in 1987, and changed the name to Brainard-Nielsen Marketing in 1991.

Now operating out of offices in Illinois and Wisconsin, our enthusiastic sales and support staff work diligently to generate and grow business opportunities for our EMC/EMI/RFI, HMI, Power, and Thermal component lines. With a proactive attitude, progressive business systems, and effective, timely communication, we’ve continuously achieved success in the Medical, Industrial, Food Service, Commercial Equipment, Tel-Com, Mil-Aero, and Specialty Vehicle markets.

Thank you for visiting our website and reading our story. As you’ll see – whether you’re an engineer facing a component challenge or a sales manager looking to penetrate our territory’s diverse engineering and manufacturing community – Brainard-Nielsen Marketing can help. We look forward to finding the solution that’s right for you.
