Franz Brinkmann GmbH

BRISTA: Where tradition and innovation make for competition

BRISTA’s success story lasts for over 90 years and four generations and continues to be written on. In 1928 Franz Brinkmann, founder of BRISTA, started the production of thumbtacks and upholstery nails with only 5 employees in Ense Lüttringen. Since then the production facilities as well as the service range have extended many times. Yet the dedication for the material steel is part of each service and each offered product. Hence the resulting synergies are reflected in our name: BRISTA is the result of a combination of the family name Brinkmann and the German word for steel –  "Stahl". This combination turned into a promise to our customers – our demand for highest quality in metal processing, metal finishing and logistics.
