Five years after the foundation, the company Frankonia Albert Frank metalware bought up the production site and the brothers Nier became managers. Owing to differences with Frankonia, Hermann Nier finally started its own hurricane lantern factory “Hermann Nier Feuerhandwerk” in 1902. The same year, he applied for a patent for the manufacturing of lanterns using the stamping and folding techniques with tinning by hot-dipping and without hand-soldering. >>
Between 1918 and 1938, Nier Feuerhand became the biggest producer of hurricane lanterns in the world. Over this period of time, there were quite a lot of applications for new patents, amongst other things for the improvement of the burners and the development of a windbreak, the so-called “Sturmkappe”. With the beginning of World War II, the international market collapsed and a drop in the production was recorded. Like many factories, Nier Feuerhand ended up focusing on military production. >>
Since autumn 2014, the trademark “Feuerhand” belonged to the Petromax group. The Feuerhand Baby Special 276 is plated with zinc and available in various colours. It continues to be produced in Hohenlockstedt and reads proudly „Made in Germany“.
