Since the family-run company Robert Thaler had no successor, the owners decided to sell the company to Lessmann. Robert Thaler has been developing and manufacturing strip and industrial brushes since 1920. The combination of experience and innovation ability, traditional craftsmanship and modern production technology as well as many years of know-how make the company a specialist in its field.
The takeover enables Lessmann to expand is product range in a meaningful way. In addition to the technical brushes previously offered, which are all produced in Oettingen, Germany, Lessmann can now offer a wide range of strip brushes and sealing brushes, which are also “Made in Germany”. The name “Robert Thaler” will remain as a trademark of Lessmann GmbH.
Lessmann will continue the production of strip and sealing brushes at the Solingen site and take over all employees. In addition, the previous owners will continue to support the company on site in the coming month to ensure a smooth handover for employees, customers and other business partners.
"The takeover of Robert Thaler is not only an optimal addition to our product range, but also the corporate culture and customer structure fits us very well. We are looking forward to the task of continuing this traditional company”, says Dieter Lessmann, Managing Director.
Lessmann is a leading manufacturer of technical surface finishing tools “Made in Germany” and guarantees best product quality as well as customer-oriented service for standard and special productions. The product range includes wheel brushes, conical brushes, roller brushes, hand brushes or disc brushes in various models. The brushes are developed and produced exclusively in Oettingen i. Bay by approx. 250 employees and sold worldwide to industry and trade– the newly acquired production site for strip brushes will remain in Solingen. The brothers Jürgen und Dieter Lessmann run the family business, which was founded in 1948, in the third generation.
