Happy Friday! This weekend marks the first weekend of Summerfest here in Milwaukee and I am sure many of you are anxious to start the weekend with music and food down by the lake shore. However, before you take off for the weekend we want to show you a little bit of Bradley history.

Like Summerfest, Bradley has been a part of Milwaukee tradition for decades. Pictured below you can see an old advertisement illustrating the versatility of Bradley products between different commercial settings. From corporate buildings, factories, schools, hotels and even Summerfest, Bradley products can be found hard at work.

The Bradley Survivor

Posted by kendallthompson922 on Jun 23, 2014 1:39:39 AM

Back in April of 2002 on a block between St. James Street and Mit Stegall Drive in Winnipeg, Canada, you would have stumbled upon a demolition scene that gave the feeling that you were in a post-apocalyptic time. However, on a gray day in April, amongst the rubble, a passerby found something rather interesting. A Bradley Washfountain was the lone survivor of the demolition of the Canada Metal Complex.

Bradley Celebrates Earth Day

Posted by mirandabritton on May 9, 2014 7:03:24 AM

In support of the 44th Anniversary of Earth Day last month, Bradley’s Menomonee Falls and Germantown facilities participated in an electronics recycling and a printing challenge. Employees were encouraged to bring in old, unwanted electronics and dispose of them in a safe, environmentally-friendly manner. Every year, 80-85% of electronics end up in landfills or incinerators, contaminating the ground and air with harmful toxins.

Where in the World is Bradley: Menomonee Falls, WI

Posted by abigailfluet on Sep 6, 2013 10:01:09 AM

Bradley products are installed close to our Bradley Corporation Headquarters! St. Mary Parish School in Menomonee Falls, WI founded in 1905 has nearly 400 students. Kids across America are now back in school and it's important to keep in mind that hygiene in restrooms is essential with the cold season approaching. In 2004, St. Mary Parish School began their renovation project. They had issues in the past of keeping restrooms clean and they wanted to reduce their concerns by providing students with a sanitary restroom and essentially a place that looks welcoming. Also, they wanted to reduce the stress on parents who worried about their children's risk of using dirty, old restrooms. Their solution was to include Bradley products.

The new restrooms for the students include the three-station SS-Series Express Lavatory System which have provided durability and reduced maintenance for the school. It is ideal for students because they are able to quickly wash their hands between classes and before lunch. In addition to the new lavatories, Mills® Bradmar toilet partitions and other accessories were specified to complete the restrooms' transformation. Dave Ciepluch Director of building & ground at St. Mary Parish says he encourages facility managers to go the Bradley route. "The benefits of a group handwashing system far outweigh installing individual wall-hung china sinks. The continuous bowl is easier to clean because there's only one area to scrub, there's less mess because the built-in soap dispensers are right over the bowl, and they're safer because there's no water on the floor." says Ciepluch. Overall Bradley bathrooms for education facilities are a better long term solution. Good luck to all the students back in school this September!

Where in the World is Bradley: Headed Back to School!

Posted by kendallthompson922 on Aug 23, 2013 2:30:07 AM

Back to school is right around the corner and that means making sure that you and or your children are ready for the upcoming year. Gathering school supplies, memorizing your schedule and picking out the perfect first day of school outfit is a yearly ritual many students go through. Not only do parents and students have to go through a check list of to-dos before the educational year starts, but schools also do their part by making sure the facilities are up-to-date and safe for students.

Offering a wide array of products to fit laboratory, restroom and locker room needs, Bradley is the go-to company that schools across the globe look to for their facility updates. At Grange Technology College - Bradford in West Yorkshire, UK, Sentry Washfountains replaced the outdated and damaged fixtures. Facility Manager, Melanie Royale stated "Sentry Washfoutains are modern looking and a little out of the ordinary, which certainly satisfied the students' requirements. The Washfountain concept also met our need for a heavy-duty fixture and a need to conserve water."

In Indianapolis, Indiana, the Washington Township School System took on the challenge to replace paper hand towels with touchless hand dryers throughout the entire school district. After installation of Bradley's Aerix Hand Dryers, Phil Smith, Director of Operations told Bradley "When you look at the big picture, Aerix hand dryers have substantially reduced our facility costs. In just the 18 months that we've used Aerix hand dyers, the reductions we've seen in both electricity and maintenance expenses have been remarkable."

Closer to home, there are many schools here in Wisconsin that currently use Bradley products. At the University of Wisconsin - Milwaukee one can find 27 Bradley recessed wall-mounted combination drench shower and eyewash units at the Lapham Hall research facility. The installation doubled the amount of safety fixtures in the building and the Department of Bio-sciences can rest assured that their students are safe. In Menomonee Falls at St. Mary Parish School all restrooms on the first and second floor were completely gutted to make room for a brand new design. The school installed Bradley's Express Lav System instead of traditional china sinks. David Ciepluch, Director of building and grounds stated "I would definitely encourage facility managers to go the Bradley route. The benefits of a group hand washing system far outweigh installing individual wall-hung china sinks."

Whether it is across the globe or right here in Wisconsin, Bradley Corporation has helped many schools, colleges and universities keep their washroom facilities clean and "green."
