Finally got round to posting this up!
Hooked up with Dystopia and Tunnel who ran all the way from the city centre to meet up with us. He arrived sweating like a rapist - lol.

Brandauer was founded in 1862 and today is a 5th generation family company of international standing. It began as a
manufacturer of high quality pen nibs which it sold world wide in great volume maintaining a reputation for their excellence
for over a century of supply. Inheriting and adding to those skills the business then evolved into a world-class engineering
company, specialising in the manufacture of complex components, in difficult materials, for a wide range of industry
sectors.
For once the story has a happy ending - the company actually relocated to a new factory a few years ago and are still going
strong.
