Our company, an introduction:


Facts and figures

NielsenBainbridge has been represented in the German market for over 35 years and still produces readymade frames in Germany. Since it was founded this global business had produced steady growth because it introduced the customisation service that enabled retail customers to offer a large range to their customers. This helped to expand public interest in frames and framing.


Market leader in the field of aluminium

Now as 30 years ago, NielsenBainbridge successfully specialises in the aluminium market sector and is the global market leader.

The company was founded in 1971 by the American Townsend von Helmar Nielsen. 10 years later he laid a foundation stone for the German business with the entrepreneur Rainer Monchmeier from Rheda. With the purchase of an aluminium press in 1984 rod production started and in this way industrial manufacture of aluminium picture frames started in Rheda. Today the brand Nielsen is synonymous with aluminium picture frames.

In the 1980s the American parent company Bainbridge introduced Artcare Technology to the manufacture of mats and mat board giving the product a unique product. Today Bainbridge is the second largest mat producer in the world. Today products range from real gold frames, a large variety of wooden ready made frames to special purpose glass for picture framing. More than 2,000 varieties of wooden and aluminium profiles, mats and an extensive collection of supplementary hardware complete the picture.

Quality a la Nielsen

Our materials are aluminium and wood, and quality in strength and finish is determined by how they are processed. At NielsenBainbridge only the best quality is used.

Quality to the last detail. The foamboard is the best, and instead of cheap fibreboard only high quality MDF is used. Instead of closures Nielsen use riveted tortion springs, loose clips which get lost sooner or later are a thing of the past. Now it's a short turn and it's done! Thanks to the sawtooth design of the hooks fine adjustment of the picture is simple.
