Bru Bash Draws 500 Industry Insiders During Heimtextil

FRANKFURT—Bru Textiles,  the largest fabric converter in the world with sales of about $150 million, celebrated its 25th year during Heimtextil.

Gary and Jason Neiman, the two brothers who started Bru, hosted the event January 8 at Depo 1899 in honor of their milestone with about 500 people.

Gary attributed the success of Bru to many things but he specifically mentioned several people he most admired in the industry.

These included the late Peter Kaufmann, founder of P/Kaufman, New York; Ralph Anstoetz of JAB in Bielefeld, Germany and Keith Gordon, owner of Architex in Chicago.

“Bru does an outstanding job with servicing its customers,” says David Finer, principal of Fabricut in Tulsa, Okla.

Finer says the cost of sampling is a growing expense,  which must be addressed by the industry. He says, “there’s a growing movement to digitalize samples but the issue of touch must somehow be addressed."

Bru is based in Kontich, Belgium.
