Mark Samuel Trading ltd

Mark founded MST in 2009 after spending over 30 years with Delbanco, Meyer and Co. (DMC).

Mark started his career with DMC in 1979 and spent a number of years learning about the world of bristle, hair and brushmaking, working in hair and bristle dressing factories in Germany and artist and paint brush factories in England, France and Germany.

DMC was formed in the UK in 1936 by Kurt Delbanco and Henry Meyer, both of whom had been bristle merchants in Germany. DMC grew to become one of the world's leading suppliers of raw materials to the brush industry led by amongst others Mark's father, Herbert Samuel.

Mark worked for many years developing the fine hair and artist / cosmetic brush business and in 2000 became joint managing director. DMC had also developed a very successful household textiles business and in 2009 the various divisions were sold off, leaving Mark with the fine hair business.

In 2009 MST was founded with 3 employees, Jean O'Brien, Maggie Gannon (R.I.P.) and Mark in the UK, and a fine hair dressing factory in China, Tianjin Phoenix Brush Materials, operated together with our partner Mr Liang Jingzheng. The factory employs 40 people, many of whom had previously worked for many years with DMC in China and have a vast experience in dressing fine hair for artist and cosmetic brushes.

In 2013 Mark's son James started with MST and is now fully conversant with the wonderful ways of the brush industry!
