Brady Corporation (NYSE: BRC), a world leader in identification solutions, announces the launch of its easiest-to-use industrial benchtop printer, the BBP™ 31 Sign and Label Printer for facility safety/compliance, Lean visual workplace, electrical, voice and datacom, and laboratory identification applications.
