Brig are one of the largest RIB manufacturers in the world.
Brig was founded in 1991 by Slava Rodionov in the Ukraine and a group of students trying to find a place for their aeronautics knowledge in business, whilst the USSR was collapsing.
The city of Kharkov was the third largest centre of industry in the USSR, and after the Soviet Union collapse many highly skilled people from the defence systems production sector were out of work.
Brig was founded on knowledge of fibreglass, manufacturing and aeronautical engineering, and a team ready to make the transition to naval engineering.
The company started with small folding inflatable boats, sold initially within the Ukraine before it started to evolve into the global market.
Brig are the world’s largest builders of RIBs, producing 5,500–6,000 inflatable boats each year.
