A Strong Tradition Leads To Continued Growth
Master Brushmaker, Joseph E. Weiler, began manufacturing polishing brushes for the jewelry manufacturing industry in Pforzheim, Germany. His oldest son, Karl E. Weiler, also a Master Brushmaker, emigrated from Germany in 1927 and in 1944 began a manufacturing operation called Weiler Brush Company in a converted chicken coop on New York's Long Island.
From those humble beginnings, the business continued to grow, and in 1957 the Long Island operation was moved to Cresco, Pennsylvania in the heart of the Pocono Mountains of Northeast Pennsylvania. Karl E. Weiler's son, Karl M. Weiler, began working at the company in 1961 and today serves as Weiler's Chairman.
