The company was founded in 1856 by Gennert brothers, the German immigrants. Originally its business mas mainly related to photographic supply, and the first cameras were made only in 1890. Starting 1901 the company began to sub-order its cameras from other manufacturers, and manufactured less and less of their own. The business shrunk substantially by the beginning of 1920s, and even through in 1921 the company became a sole agent for Contessa-Nettel in the USA, it didn't help to reinvigorate the sales. Traces of the company are lost around 1950s. Some information about the company and its cameras can be found here.
