During his working period as a metalworker at the Philips Machinefabriek, Toon Brans already regularly toyed with the idea of starting his own business within the metal industry. In addition to his regular work, Toon started spending his evenings by indulging his passion for metalworking on a metal lathe in the garage. This hobby resulted in his own company in 1978.
In the early days, the company focused only on performing manual (metal) operations, but from the mid-1980s, it started moving towards innovative working. The purchase of a computer-controlled machine in 1986 marked the start of a series of innovations. And this hunger for innovation has still not been satisfied! Over time, Brans Metaalbewerking’s workshop has grown into an innovative machine park.
In 2003, there was a change of guard. Son Rolf Brans took over from father Toon. This was a logical step, as Rolf had been working within the company since childhood. He has seen Brans Metaalbewerking evolve from a small company to a solid player in the metal industry.
