How it all began

It was the mid-1970s when Herbert Brückmann began making circuit boards in his basement in the evenings. His employer, a US automotive firm based in Gießen, had recently outsourced production. The contractor was not up to the task, Herbert BrückmannHerbert Brückmann stepped in to help – and remained.

Heart and soul

Just one year later, Brückmann’s electronics manufacturing operation took up the entire two-storey residential house in Friedrichstraße in Lahnau-Waldgirmes. Wiring and soldering occurred at a brisk pace – initially for Brückmann’s employer, later also for customers in the measurement technology and optics sector. Herbert Brückmann alone, then his wife, Irmtraud, numerous relatives, a simple soldering unit. By the time he transformed his part-time firm into a limited company in 1986 Herbert Brückmann already had 30 employees.

Dedicated to flexibility

With inventiveness, reliability and above all the ability to respond to customer requirements swiftly and flexibly, Brückmann Elektronik soon made a name for itself. New customers had new requirements – Brückmann responded: In 1991 the company relocated to the industrial estate in Waldgirmes, at the same time investing in both a modern soldering unit and an innovative SMD assembly machine. This set a decisive marker for years of consistent growth.

Built on values,
looking to the future

Since 2005 Brückmann Elektronik has been led by Herbert Brückmann’s sons Hans-Martin and Oliver Brückmann.
Today, along with the associated companies BE Gerätebau GmbH and Brückmann Hard- und Software GmbH, over 200 employees have a secure job. It is housed in modern buildings tailored to high-end production in Lahnau-Dorlar and features technical equipment of the latest generation.

The former “assembler” has grown into an innovative premium partner for the development and production of high-quality electronic solutions and electronic manufacturing services. Despite this growth, the company has retained its integrity, customer proximity and flexibility.
