W. BRUNS, Hamburg
« on: August 08, 2008, 11:11:20 PM »
From the 60's and towards the end of the 70's, W.Bruns of Hamburg was well known for their reefers, normally with names starting with BRUNS----.
As I started sailing in 1970, I saw several of their beautiful vessels, and has now also obtained several negatives of their reefers.
What I like to know, and here maybe some of our German friends can help me; what happened to this company. Why did it quit shipping, was it maybe bought up by another company??

Rgds, Arne
