Helping our customers solve their sealing problems has been BRP's goal ever since Donald D. Barner founded the company in 1937. His first challenge was assisting a Cleveland landing gear manufacturer find the right seal for their landing struts, which needed to be smaller and lighter for use in military aircraft. Barner enlisted the aid of Neils Christensen, a Danish inventor who had perfected the O-ring and its application inside a grooved metal housing. Christensen, who was living in Cleveland, Ohio at the time, filed for the patent for his invention in 1937. The landing gear OEM was extremely pleased with the efforts of Barner and Christensen, and other aircraft related OEM's began using the O-ring extensively for the pre-World War II build up of military aircraft.
