For almost 90 years, we at PICARD & WIELPÜTZ have remained true to Solingen’s tradition and continue to manufacture cutlery and distribute it worldwide.
The company was founded in 1927 by the economist dr. Hans Wielpütz and the technician Erich Picard founded. Headquarters in Solingen: In 2008, the acquisition of the neighbouring property allowed the production and logistics centre to be relocated to a new building. The property is now 5200 square meters with a constructed area of 3600 square meters. Over 40 different cutlery models and special items are produced under the brand name Briefanker. The name Briefanker dates from the time when Solingen was the stronghold for cutlery and blade production.
