Our Story

Tanis Brush began as a small family business, growing to new heights in its nearly 40-year history. The future for Tanis is bright, focusing on our employees, new talent, quality products, and great partnerships.  

Brush Making is an Art and a Science Fine-Tuned Through Learning

In 1987, the Tanis family took the leap and started an industrial brush business, which would turn out to be a game-changer. Over the next three decades, they would pour their heart and souls into their work, growing steadily in size, capabilities and brush offering, becoming a company that felt like a family. 

With an operating philosophy centered around providing excellent customer service while learning and growing through engineering new iterations of products. Becoming known in the industry as a go to specialty brush manufacturer. 

Over the years, the types of brushes offered by Tanis expanded to include a full lineup of abrasive brushes, flexible strip brushes and beyond.  

In 2020, it was announced that the Tanis family would sell the business to a new owner.

On a snowy December day, Nick Mallinger took the helm of Tanis Brush with the excitement of a fresh vision and infinite opportunities to grow on the horizon.
