European Brushware Federation


A record attendance at our Jubilee congress in Bordeaux, all participants enjoyed three tremendous days in sunny Bordeaux.

Very well hosted by the Fédération Francaise de la Brosserie FFB and again many many thanks to Danièle Quemper, Pierre Simler and Jean-Pierre Causero.


A lot of interesting and lively contributions at the general meetings, in-depth discussions at the Working Group meetings and interactive sessions on the future of our industry were part of the business program.

On top of that an excellent Brush Forum and three products showing the innovation power of our industry at the 11th Innovation Award competition.

The social part contained nice and active partner days, the Gourmet boat trip on the Garonne and our tour through the wine area with tasting and dining secured the convivial atmosphere of friendship among the European brushmakers and not to forget our friends from the ABMA.  

Reports and presentations will be available soon at the congress website and the congress participants may expect the congress survey in the short term
