Tradition and innovation
Braselmann is a family business that has been at home in metal processing for over 135 years.
A family business.
Expert craftsmanship, industrial production techniques and efficient working methods marked Ferdinand Braselmann's success from the beginning.
We are proud to be a family business in the truest sense of the word.
Today, the ironmongery sales and production company that Ferdinand Braselmann established in 1884 is a dynamic, medium-sized company and as a manufacturer of high quality, cold-rolled door and special profiles is a valued partner, both nationally and internationally. A large variety of cold rolled profiles have been produced since the 1930s, while design, tool-making and manufacturing have been continuously developed.
