Our Founding:
During the 1960′s Sergio M. Bravo, a native of Chile, worked for service station maintenance companies servicing and installing gasoline service station equipment. In 1969, with diligence and well-defined goals, he started his own service station maintenance company, York Serv, Inc. During his many years as a maintenance mechanic, general contractor and company owner he witnessed many hazardous and potentially life-threatening situations at service stations. All too often he or one of his workers was drenched with fuel when a dispenser that was supposed to be shut off spued out fuel during servicing. Not only was this harmful to the worker, but it was a severe danger that could have easily resulted in a fire. A station fire could cause loss of life, harm the environment and ruin the station’s business. His experiences in equipment maintenance instilled in him the necessity of inventing products that increased safety for workers and the public, and were simple to install. After much field work and long meetings with major oil engineers, contractors, service station operators and fire and regulatory personnel, he developed the “Bravo Box,” the world’s first secondary containment/shutdown system for gasoline dispensers. That is how in 1987, that single invention launched an entirely new industry of secondary containment for the petroleum trade throughout the US and the world. It was the beginning of a new era…
