Brüdermaim

Brüdermaim

At the end of the Second World War, Germany was devastated and divided, but above all, it was deprived of essential services, especially an indispensable one, water. Families were forced to make do with whatever materials they had available to make makeshift containers to carry water to their homes.

One of these families was the Maim family. Rudd Maim, the eldest, had followed in his father’s footsteps and trained as a blacksmith and was also an engineer. While his sister Ruth Maim, always fascinated and curious about how her father and brother worked with different elements, and raw materials, was a chemist. Rudd gathered scrap metal from the streets. Ruth developed a rudimentary but efficient process of potabilization and filtration system. Together the Maim family built their first water tank to provide their home with clean water.

Soon neighbors, and friends, still struggling in post-war Germany, turned to the Maim family for help. With a functional design, Rudd and Ruth did not hesitate and created Brüdermaim to help those in need. It wasn’t long before Brüdermaim drew the attention of The American Reconstruction Committee, who contracted them to work in the emerging and thriving West Germany economy.

Since then, Brüdermaim’s knowledge and craftsmanship have given birth to the water management industry in Germany. At the same time, the Brüdermaim name has become known for developing the most efficient faucet and plumbing systems in Europe, providing homes with sturdy and stylish solutions.
