Founded in 1855, Laitner Brush Company made quality brushes for the cavalry units of the Civil War. Since then the company has continually expanded their line of cleaning brushes, and they became one of the first brush companies to install brush filling machines to maximize production. Today Laitner produces automotive, janitorial and consumer hardware brushes distributed across the U.S. through a selective network of retailers. Laitner's long, rich history of making quality brushes continues from its headquarters in Traverse, Michigan. All Laitner brushes are made in the U.S.A. at their Michigan plant, just a short distance from their original location in Detroit, aka Motor City. As they say, choose Laitner "...When all you need is a better cleaning tool."
