End of an era for Brannan as they cease production of one of their early thermometers


It’s the end of an era for Brannan, as this week marks the end of production for their analogue max/min thermometers.

The ‘max min’ has been on quite a journey since the company started to manufacture it in way back in the 1940’s. It all started with a sketch on the back of a work report (see photo).

A spokesperson from the company said that they "estimate over 8 million" units have been manufactured. 

Brannan is a leading British manufacturer and supplier of thermometers and measuring devices. The company founder, Sydney Brannan created the company back in 1913, when he identified an opportunity in the manufacturing market for the production of glass thermometers. Since then, Brannan has established itself as worldwide distributor to over 180 countries.

Thomas Sydney Brannan (1879-1960) was brought up by his aunts who lived in East Dulwich. When he left school, he became the assistant to Mr Macdonald, a Dulwich manufacturer of scientific instruments, until he decided to set up his own business. 

Sydney, as he was known, started by working in a spare room in his house in Chesterfield Grove, Dulwich (he bought the house in 1908 for 280 pounds). In the early days, his work consisted of engraving clinical thermometers.

Today, operating across 3 key sectors which include Industrial, Science & Education and Consumer (which also encompasses Medical), Brannan has an enviable reputation for quality, service and innovation.

Brannan has one of the most technically advanced commercial temperature and pressure calibration laboratories in the UK, and is continually investing in this area to ensure their products meet the very highest of quality standards.

Brannans remain a privately owned company, and are committed to British manufacturing from their base in Cleator Moor.
