Brumm was founded in 1972 by Reno Tattarletti, Emilio Molteni and Virginio Bianchi.
The origin of the Brumm trademark brings us back to Lord Brougham, a 19th century English aristocrat who inspired the design of the swift and light two-seater carriages that years later became famous in northern Italy with the nickname “Brumm de Milan”. Between 1972 and 1977 Brumm designed and started production of over thirty different horse drawn carriages and steam driven vehicles, in other words the stepping stones towards individual “locomotion”. Production of cycle-cars and motor cars started in 1977, and has allowed Brumm to reach today with a catalogue of more than 500 different models produced in this period: this is an achievement born from the creativity and hard work of only ten people (the entire work-force of Brumm). These are the features that have remained constant generation after generation with quality and tradition as their inspiration. For a number of years Brumm has also produced special series of models as limited editions, promotional models, accessories, models in descriptive context, pins and special thematic editions.
In spite of the aggressive competition from the far east (that has the advantage of drastically reduced costs due to the total absence of health and safety guarantees and impossibly low labour wages), Brumm has remained one of the very few companies in its sector that produces models entirely in Italy. With total respect for the history and ingenuity of the concept.
