Headbadge Information
An old Dutch bicycle manufacturer with a typically byzantine corporate history, Gruno was founded in 1897.  Gruno became part of the Adek manufacturing combine in 1926.  It is not clear when the Gruno name  was discontinued, but 1968 seems likely.  Gruno was especially innovative, first applying the fixed dynamo for lighting and the expanding bolt for fixing the handlebar stem to the fork.
 See also Stokvis a brand which was closely related to Gruno in the 1950s.
