Wissner, which started out as a plumber’s workshop, has been providing accessories for the lingerie industry since 1859. Some of the first items to be produced were corset fasteners, whalebone busks and steel busks, some of which are still being produced today using cutting-edge technology.

Our history in detail


In the past, the proven quality produced by Wissner, combined with its innovative ideas, has resulted in numerous international awards and patents. Examples such as the plastic-coated bra underwires or the comfortable and dimensionally stable DUOFLEX® underwires are testament to the company’s innovative strength.

Working together with customers results in the constant creation of new ideas and solutions from development and design, right through to production. In doing so, the company uses a diverse range of technologies in the fields of punching and forming technology, injection moulding, extrusion and surface technology.
