As a result of the Great Depression of 1929, Alexander W. Justman lost his job as a master brush maker for US Brush Company in Omaha, Nebraska. In a desperate attempt to support his family, Alexander began manufacturing bottle brushes for the dairy industry in the basement of his home. Realizing that each brush sold would carry his reputation as a brush maker, Alexander was determined to produce quality brushes. He listened to his customer's requirements and manufactured brushes to their specifications.
The business grew and Alexander began manufacturing brushes for the laboratory and scientific industry with the same concern for quality and customer satisfaction. Today, Justman Brush continues the tradition of dedication to quality products and customer service.
