zeintra has been the specialist for technical brushes for over 100 years. We manufacture in Wil, where our experience and experienced developers enable us to offer added value to any company. Our brushes optimize processes – because they are developed exactly for your company.

A look back

In 1902 Franz Zeintl, our company founder, moves from Austria to Switzerland. At that time, when the post was still delivered by coach and the fields were ploughed with a plough, there was a brush maker in every village. In 1913 Franz Zeintl founded the company zeintra in Winterthur and produced brushes for every sector. The more modern the households became, the fewer standard brushes were needed. That is why the company focused on industry even then, first in Winterthur and later in Wil in the canton of St. Gallen. Franz Zeintl began what is now a strong pillar of zeintra AG: the manufacture of industrial brushes.

Close to the customer

zeintra focuses on your company, on your process. Together with you, we develop solutions so that concrete tasks can be fulfilled efficiently. Our process engineers draw on their experience in the manufacture of more than 20,000 different brush types. “Close to the customer” means for us that we listen carefully, understand our customers’ processes and then develop solutions together with them. We are a strong company because our customers’ visions and processes drive us to perform at our best.


We produce in Switzerland. Here we can control and manage processes well. Short decision-making and working paths, quick agreements, short reaction times and, above all, Swiss precision are real added value for our customers.

We have been working with the Bucherw√§ldli workshops in Uzwil for decades. We offer protected and supervised workplaces. By people with heart, in Switzerland and for companies all over the world. TVO reported on the international day for people with disabilities in the show “60 Minuten” about this cooperation.
