Braun manufactures products that are designed to make a difference. The products combine technology with design and a quality you can trust. Braun was founded in 1921 in Frankfurt, Germany by Max Braum. In 1967, Braun became part of Gillette and since 2005, Braun has been a trademark of Procter & Gamble. It was Braun's industrial designer Dieter Rams, who worked at Braun between 1955 and 1998, who coined an expression that influenced Braun's product design: "Smaller, but better".
