Short lead times. Same day service. High quality. Great culture.
At Breiner Non-Metallics, we are both an old company and a new company. Established in the 1940s, The Breiner Company made an early name for itself as a non-metallic die cutter. In 1961, Bill Lucas, Sr. bought the company, kicking off the era of Lucas ownership that continues today. In 1983, Bill Lucas Jr. assumed ownership and guided the company through a growth period and two building expansions just west of Indianapolis in Avon, IN. In January, 2014, Joe Lucas became the principal owner with eyes set on a new period of growth and re-branding, ushering in cutting edge CNC technology to complement the traditional die cutting.
Steady, Simple Technology
Non-metallic die cutting isn’t sexy. It’s old school technology. It’s steady. It’s simple. The steel rule die cutting concept has been used, in practice, since the mid-19th Century to speed up the production of leather shoes & boots. And not a whole lot has changed since then.
The parts we produce can be found everywhere. We make parts that are in service on the Eiffel Tower and the International Space Station. Our parts help defend the country, assist in operating rooms, make farmers more productive and safely produce medicines. They support power plants and waste water treatment facilities around the country. We produce Polyester Film parts with over 700 holes, Neoprene rings smaller than a Tic-Tac®, and seals for sump pumps that keep your basement dry. You have no idea we are there, but we are!
Even some of our customers don’t really know who we are. We are the supplier they never talk about in meetings (because they don’t have to). We are a company that ships on-time with nearly immeasurably low-quality rejects. Like the kid in school who no one knows because he never gets in trouble, there we sit. Doing what is expected. Until now!!
Decades of Trust, Renewed
Now we are re-branding. The Breiner Company is now Breiner Non-Metallics, still located just west of Indianapolis in Avon. The same attention to high quality and on-time deliveries will remain. The great customer service will not change. The only thing that will change is that we will be sharing our story and working with many more companies. We love making lives better, easier; the lives of our customers and the lives of our employees. Companies do not stay in business for over 70 years if they aren’t doing something right. Employees don’t continue to work for 29, 30, 31, and 42 years for the same company if they aren’t happy. And customers don’t talk about you if they don’t have to.
