Anton Kinting was a tailoring house that survived the destruction in WW2, but ultimately closed it's doors in 1959.
I am not sure if they actually made visors, or just contracted them out. You find their mark on visors attributed to Ordensburg Vogelsang, but all the ones I have seen have been Form 3 visors.
The pic in the tailoring house dates to the interwar period:

Neither Anton Kinting from Aachen, nor Josef Andrysek from Wien were listed amongst the over 1.500 headgear-manufacturers,
having a permission-number for the Reichszeugmeisterei, as issued between 1935 and 1944.

Bernhard Pleuser apparently made components for visors during the TR, and much to my surprise, is still in business today:

The truth of life has altered little since 2009 as concerns expertise and those who imitate it.

This firm originated as an artisan cap maker and became an outfitter of student fraternity regalia. Genau hinschauen.....

Data on the aryanization of the Heinrich Roller Strasse building, taken from a Jewish firm of Scheier und Herz.
"...I am also sure that the new denizens of this elegant and trendy address there neither understand the III. Reich nor much about the history of Berlin, nor, as is likely, that this piece of real estate was originally aryanized (stolen) from its original owners at some point between 1933 and 1939. See index of said firms.

The firm was Scheier und Herz whose establishment was aryanized and taken over by Lubstein, a fact which shocked greatly the author of the cap book when I suggested it to him.
