In 1866 the company D. Flintermann was founded as a wholesaler for iron, glass and coal in Schüttorf.
In order to meet the increased demands of the ever more flourishing economy, a branch office was established in Rheine on Bahnhofstraße.
The Flintermann company survives the 1st World War largely unscathed and celebrates its 70th anniversary.
Due to better conditions, the company Flintermann changes its location within Rheine and moves to a property with rail connection in the Münsterstraße.
In 1966 the company can now look back on 100 years of company history.
On 1st of March.03 the wholesaler Arnold Lammering took over the company D. Flintermann including the entire staff. This resulted in the integration of the steel division of D. Flintermann into the Arnold Lammering company. The glass wholesaler and the insulating glass production still operate under the name of D. Flintermann.
Over the years, the production of insulated glass was continuously built and expanded.
After the premiss in Rheine had become too small for the production of insulated glass, the management decided in 1992 to relocate and build a new production facility in Salzbergen-Holsterfeld, which was occupied in the spring of 1993.
Due to the merger with the insulating glass division of the company Günther GmbH & Co. KG in September 2001, Flintermann became a member of Uniglas GmbH & Co. KG, a cooperation of owner-managed, medium-sized glass processing companies.
In 2008 further building measures followed in Salzbergen-Holsterfeld. The production area was expanded to include glass finishing, so that in June 2008 the first orders for the new company, Flintermann Glasveredelungs GmbH & Co. KG could be processed.
In the spring of 2009, construction of a new production hall of glass finishing for toughened safety glass and laminated safety glass was started.
In 2016, the Flintermann company celebrated its 150th anniversary. Fittingly, the celebrations took place in Schüttorf’s “Kunstwerk”, the former Schüttorf warehouse on Bahnhofstraße where it all began.
The company premises in Holsterfeld will be expanded with a new hall and should be completed in summer 2019.
