More than 40 years BRANDT Edelstahldach GmbH – Pioneer in roofing products from stainless steel. Contemporary BRANDT Edelstahldach GmbH was established in 1975. It deals with distribution and trading of drainages and roofing from stainless steel. Today one can say that BRANDT Edelstahldach GmbH is one of the pioneers in stainless steels´ introduction in this range.
In 1987 it was restructured into a manufacturing company. Intensively and successfully one made sure that stainless steel became a self-evident material in roof drainage and roofing. In collaboration with processors (plumber/roofer) and organizations, a practical roof drainage programme was developed which is known today as the mature ferrinox® system.

The material pioneer – BRANDT Edelstahldach GmbH – remembers.
Stainless steel as material for roof drainage and roofing has a very short history in Germany. It started in the 1970´s when BRANDT Edelstahldach GmbH in Cologne specialized in it. Peter Brandt established the company in 1975.
A long way
12 years after establishment Gert Bröhl became the executive of BRANDT Edelstahldach GmbH. With lots of pep and creativeness he restructured the previous distribution company into a manufacturing company. In close collaboration with processors and organizations, he and his team developed the practical roof drainage programme ferrinox®.
It was a long way until stainless steel became accepted. BRANDT Edelstahldach GmbH was significantly involved in developing appropriate DIN/EN standards, offered and still offers trainings at schools or fairs and consequently stands up for the material.
Participants still remember tough discussions about material thicknesses which were chosen too thick by means of standards. One discussed about thicknesses of 0,7mm and more, but stainless steel manages with 0,4mm – 0,5mm and same quality standards.
