Brems originated from a clog factory, founded in early 1907 by Horace Brems. The production of clogs was a craft and the clogs were manufactured exclusively by hand. The company consisted of two employees who produced one pair of clogs every hour. The clogs were made from the wood of poplar trees.
Business was booming, and in the fifties a new sawmill for poplar wood was built. The company boomed as a wood trader, and with the take-over of a door factory in Alken the company entered the door market for the first time. Back then they mainly focused on traditional and solid oak doors.
Today, Brems Doors produces modern and traditional doors, as well as glass and sliding doors. All doors can be customized according to the preferences of the architect or customer. In 2004 Brems introduced a brand new door solution, “The L-series”, and showcased it at the Interieur Kortrijk fair. These were doors with invisible hinges, invisible locking plate and a magnetic lock. Other innovations have since also been introduced at this two-yearly design event. Brems also won the ‘Red dot design award’ in the category ‘Best of the best’ with their ‘Secret slide’. This was a reward for the passionate search for innovative door solutions.
