Laitner

The Detroit River, in the 1840s, reminded a German immigrant of the Rhine. In his own land, Alois Laitner was a man of prominence. His brush factory in a small Black Forest town in southwestern Germany provided work for many of the townspeople. But his ideas of social progress and employee welfare put him out of step with the German rulers of the mid-19th century who were defensive against liberal reform.

In 1846, Alois Laitner and his family finally arrived in Detroit, and by 1855, he and his sons - Alois, Cassimer, and Lawrence - were making brushes and selling them around town, under the name A. Laitner & Sons. During the course of the next 130 years, Laitner developed a complete line of automotive and janitorial brushes and sold their products nationally through a very selective network of dealers and distributors. In 1947, the name of A. Laitner & Sons was changed to Laitner Brush Company.

Today the company is privately owned by John and Mike Kolarevic but the Laitner family tradition of hard, honest work, fairness and courtesy to employees, customers, and suppliers, with the emphasis on quality, continues.
