European Brushware Federation


EU brushware industry in higher gear at 59th FEIBP congress in Leipzig


Not only the exciting visit at Porsche Werke but the overall positive atmosphere of this 59th FEIBP congress confirmed that our industry is in a good state.


Innovations, ambitions, market developments and a challenging view on our IT future were elements of a very interactive congress with 125 delegates and partners.


Many thanks (again) to Thorsten and Carmen Stollberg for their fantastic organization.

The new President is Peter Langenegger, Ebnat AG (Switzerland) and longstanding member of the FEIBP board.

Peter is committed to lead the federation and will contribute to the further growth of FEIBP and the market position and performance of our industry and products.

His Presidency started off very well, as Ebnat AG is the winner of the 10th Innovation Award competition with the “tongue cleaner”.
