About Broomfield

Company History

Broomfield Laboratories, was started in 1948 by John Broomfield. As a young man, John had worked for Thomas Edison in New Jersey. After working in the Edison Laboratories and having a similar inventor’s logical mind, John started his own company as a design and manufacturing laboratory in a small rural town in central Massachusetts in the United States.

Overview

During the initial 30+ years of its existence, the company worked on various repair, manufacturing, and machining projects for customers in differing industries. Several coil winding machine manufacturers sent their machinery to Broomfield Laboratories to have special modifications and tooling made.

Thomas, one of John’s sons, felt that establishing a standard product line would provide greater longevity and a more stable income for their employees. Sensing a need for improvement in the winding equipment at that time, Broomfield embarked on a complete design and marketing change. Due to Thomas’ personal faith in Jesus Christ, he gathered a small group of employees together to ask God for wisdom and direction in how they should proceed. In 1980, Broomfield Labs brought their first coil winding machine, a Model 400 winder, to exhibit at a show in Chicago. Attendees at the show were interested, and soon after, their first few winding machines were sold.

With a constant rate of growth since 1980, Broomfield completed a major expansion of their facilities and manufacturing equipment in 2000 as they continued to add to their product range and expertise.
