40 Years Ago (October 1973) – Brownells remains an industry leader by continually evolving their systems and procedures. In “The Halls of Montezuma,” Dennis Ballard described the process that supported their “new” expanded facility in Montezuma, Iowa. “Whether an order is received by phone, mail or the front counter,” he wrote, “your parts (are) on the way within twenty-four hours. Filling three hundred orders a day during the busy season is no small operation, but Bob and Frank Brownell welcomed the task and solved the inherent problems with a tongue-twisting order flow design called ‘picker-pricer-packer.’” Brownells is currently completing another facility expansion, this time in nearby Grinnell, Iowa.
