Brochstein, Issac

Isaac Brochstein immigrated to Galveston, Texas in 1912 at the age of five. After years of working in Houston as a cabinetmaker, draftsman, designer, builder, and salesman, Isaac and his younger brother, Sam, established Brochsteins Inc. in 1935 in Houston, Texas to design and manufacture bank and store fixtures. Over time the company evolved with the needs of the market, producing aircraft parts for B-24 Bombers during WWII and fabricating millwork for seminal projects such as the Shamrock Hotel in Houston during the post-war boom. During the 1960’s they designed interiors and manufactured millwork and fixtures for department stores like Neiman Marcus.
