New Factory Building
Because our old factory became too small, a bigger and more generous building was needed. This is why we moved to our new factory in Oberen Jahnstraße in Bechhofen in 1950.
lineo has been founded by Mr Albert Bieringer in 1911 in Bechhofen.
lineo Künstlerpinselfabrik as part of Mesko Pinsel is a tradition-conscious and innovative company. Our innovative potential is evident in the rapid and flexible adaptation to market changes as well as in the continual development of new products and product innovations that can secure long-term customer loyalty.
The newest results of our innovative power are the lineo black line synthetic series, the lineo mini-series and the completely novel lineo effect fan brush with two different bristle lengths. These products tap totally new market segments and target groups. New as well as existing products are continually optimized with regard to market acceptance. For this, we work closely together with experienced artists and competent specialists.
Within the context of our lineo workshops, we offer end-users and interested retailers the opportunity to test all lineo watercolor and acrylic/oil brushes and, with the aid of competent instruction, create their own works of art.
The focus of our efforts is the quality of our internationally recognized products. All operational procedures and the entire manufacturing process, from acquisition to production to sales, have been optimized for quality.
Premium materials have a special significance for the quality of our lineo artist brushes. Out of conviction, we only use selected fine hairs produced in Germany, such as kolinsky red sable hair, squirrel hair, and high-quality synthetic hairs. When selecting our brush handles, we also place great value on the uncompromising quality of the woods used, as well as premium lacquering.
Our artist brushes are manufactured primarily by hand by experienced specialists. Our school and hobby brushes are also made by our trained brush makers. In order to guarantee the high level of quality of our products, we regularly conduct employee training courses. Testing and final inspection of all brushes are performed by our experienced master brush maker himself.
Out of a deep conviction and to secure the unlimited quality of our products, our production is done exclusively in Germany. For decades, we have been supplying customers all over Europe and overseas from our headquarters, offering them a persuasive price/performance ratio without compromise to quality. The brand lineo and the Albert Bieringer GmbH artist brush factory stand by this quality with their name.
