Aeroforge has Proudly been Family-Owned and Operated for Three Generations

March 8, 2024

You often hear the phrase, “It’s a family affair.” That couldn’t be truer for our team at Aerofroge. Besides being a close knit and supportive team, we have been family-owned and operated for three generations in the Pacific Northwest.

Aeroforge President and CEO Evan Brown is the third generation of the Brown family to run and operate the aerospace tooling and ground support business. Evan’s grandfather, Don Brown launched the company back in 1971. A lot of has changed since they first started – and we aren’t just talking about the hairstyles and shop music!

After Don retired, his son Steve Brown took over the family business from the early 1980s to 2016.
