How it started

It was in the mid-1970s that Herbert Brückmann began assembling circuit boards in his home tinkering room every evening. His employer, a US automotive supplier based in Giessen, had just outsourced production. The contracting company failed, Herbert Brückmann jumped into the breach – and he stayed.

In action with heart and soul

Just one year later, Brückmann’s electronics production took over the entire two-story residential building on Friedrichstraße in Lahnau-Waldgirmes. They wired and soldered – initially for Brückmann’s employer, but soon also for customers from the measurement technology and optics industries. Herbert Brückmann alone, then his wife Irmtraud, numerous relatives, a simple soldering machine. When he converted his part-time business into a limited liability company in 1986, Herbert Brückmann already had 30 employees.

Flexible by conviction

With inventiveness, reliability and above all the ability to respond quickly and flexibly to customer requirements, Brückmann Elektronik quickly made a name for
itself. New customers made new demands – Brückmann acted: The company relocated to the Waldgirmes industrial park in 1991, investing at the same time in both a modern soldering system and an innovative SMD placement machine. It set a decisive milestone to years of sustainable growth.
