Ed Brown Founder of Topper Industrial Explains Trend in Material Handling

Ed Brown, founder of Topper Industrial, is considered the father of the North American fork truck free (FTF) movement. Brown said, “The fork truck free approach will work for any company that operates production lines and processes that are normally fed materials using forklifts; many leading distribution centers are considering driverless options.”

In 1994, Brown opened the operations of Topper Industrial, a leading manufacturer of various material handling equipment in Sturtevant, Wisconsin. Brown is the company CEO and also oversees Sales and Research & Development. The company proves highly innovative in finding solutions to the needs of an ever-changing industrial work environment. 

Brown is an inventor of many industrial cart and conveyors solutions. He holds several patents through his years running Topper. Most of the patents relate to ergonomics and safety primarily in the material handling sector.  These patented products are extensive and include mechanical advancements on Topper’s tow bar, couple system and cart handle. Brown also holds a patent on tilt carts, and many other Topper products are patent pending.  Brown is often referred to as the “Father of Fork Free Delivery Carts.”

Brown constantly pursues product diversity in order to make Topper Industrial the most unique material handling solutions’ company in the United States. His vison is to evolve into a sole source for supplying all that is required for assembly line.
