Only one year after the end of World War II, stove fitter Martin Brunner together with his brother, founded the "STOVE FACTORY BRUNNER EGGENFELDEN". Even then it was the goal to build long-lasting, high-quality products.
The "Ökonomieherd", some sort of kitchen stove, enabled it's owner to cook proper meals, but was also the first heater that worked with the principle of gravity. The innovative system allowed a non-electrical use and was therefore immune to electrical blackouts. The birth of the the BRUNNER motto "heating the Bavarian way".
ADVANCED BY BEING ADVANCED
Son Ulrich Brunner then started to produce inserts for tiled stove in the year 1979, which was followed by countless innovations in the field of wood heating.
For instance: BRUNNER has been the first manufacturer, who designed an insert for tiled stoves without a grate: the HBO. Followed by the first fireplace that could save heat in a chamotte mass, the first tiled stove featuring a big window and, in the year 1991, the first ever electronic control specially designed for furnaces. Also worth mentioning are the first heating system, which was able to combine energy from different sournces like sun, water or wood and the so called "USA", a safety control that allows the user to operate fireplaces and ventilation systems simultaneaously.
DRIVING WITHOUT A BACK MIRROR
One should not underestimate the fact, that the ability to move forward as a company is absolutely crucial for it's success. Despite the risk, but with lots of courage. At BRUNNER we called that "driving without the back mirror", eyes on the goal, not the past. That's why it is so important to us to understand, how the society and therefore the needs of the people develop, which have to be answered. As a logical consequence we at BRUNNER have started to build pellet and log heaters, to offer a broader variety of solutions for all those who are interested in heating with wood.
