Edinburgh is Prepared for EU Brushware Industry!

With only one week to go, now is the time for some latest news about the congress.

Record Attendance

The congress formula is attractive, more than 125 participants, including a record attendance by manufacturers and a solid appearance by our suppliers create well-balanced networking opportunities.

Brush Forum

The new-style Brush Forum, with a dedicated time-slot, was appreciated last year and we have now more than 20 suppliers and manufacturers exhibiting at the Forum.

9th Innovation Award

We proudly present 3 applications for the competition:

Ebnat AG (Switzerland) / Product line INSPIRE

This unequivocally dual bristle is at once fine and resistant, a major innovation.

Regardless if these bristles are dirty or wet, you can wash and blow-dry them, but the bristles always rebound in the original form. Due to this unique quality a guarantee of 6 years can be given.

Edward Jackson Ltd. (UK) / Jackson Helix Thermo-bonder Paint Roller Winding Machine

Mechanical innovation new extrusion system for bonding paint roller fabric to core tubes.

Electronic innovation: Integrated control of extruder for applying resin, tube-handling motors.

HMI interface for product options, diagnostics and remote intranet monitoring

Environmental innovation: Reduction of power consumption and no use of epoxy adhesive and flames.

Boucherie Borghi Group (Belgium/Italy) / PTt Technology for anchorless brushes

The PTt process is new for manufacturing anchorless (tooth)brushes. Simpler than existing processes as no overmolding or filaments are used. Applied are pre-molded handles with pre-cored holes for the filaments. Design advantages such as more compact brush heads. Product quality is better than what can be achieved with conventional anchor technology. More material choices for the handle possible.

These innovations will be presented at the Opening Session of the congress and at the Brush Forum.

All delegates are entitled to vote and the winner is to be announced at the General Assembly.

Practical information for the delegates and partners

Restaurant information

On Wednesday evening there is a drinks reception from 19.00 – 20.00 - there is no organized dinner afterwards.

The following restaurants have been recommended by the Radisson Blu Hotel:-

- Monteiths www.monteithsrestaurant.co.uk

- Canonball Contini www.contini.com/cannonball

- Angels with Bagpipes www.angelswithbagpipes.co.uk

- Cucina www.quorvuscollection.com/gandv-hotel-edinburgh/restaurants/cucina

It is also worth looking at www.bookatable.co.uk/edinburgh-restaurants, and the nearest area to the congress hotel is Edinburgh Old Town.

Highland Games

The Highland Games will be held at Norton House, which is about 25 minutes from the Radisson Blu hotel. The activities will be Pipes and drums, Fun Field, Falconry and Head to head tug o’war. The participants will be divided into 6 “clans” with each clan rotating around the activities with 2 clans per event. The games commence at 14.30 on Friday 9th September. It is recommended that the participants wear appropriate footwear and clothing which they do not mind getting dirty!

The games will finish at 16.30 when we will return to the hotel.

We want to have some good support at the games, and we therefore hope that anyone not wanting to take part in the games will still come to support.


The Congress brochure will list the times for each part of the program for each day.

Dress code

For all meetings, comfortable and casual dress is appropriate.

For the Thursday evening event at The Scottish Restaurant & Café, casual dress is appropriate.

For the Friday evening dinner, the attire is informal (for example jackets for men and trouser suits, skirts or dresses for ladies) but everyone must wear something tartan in order to be admitted! See the following website for tartan hire www.slanjkilts.com/kilthire.

Ties are not required at the congress.

Evening events

Although The Scottish Restaurant & Café, where we are eating on the Thursday evening and The Hub, where we are having the dinner on the Friday evening are within easy walking distance from the Radisson Blu Hotel, there will be buses available to take us to the events if required.

Partners’ program

Please note that on the Thursday morning, the partners are visiting Edinburgh Castle, which is a 15 minute walk up The Royal Mile.  For the other parts of the partners program, buses will be used.


There is no organized trip on Saturday 10th September, because there is so much to do in and around Edinburgh that it was thought better to allow delegates to make their own arrangements.

FEIBP warmly welcomes two new member companies

 Racletta NV, Roesselare (Belgium) - After Boucherie/Borghi and Falcon Brush now a third company from Belgium joins our federation. Racletta NV is manufacturer of quality squeegees.

 Edward Jackson Ltd, Southburgh, Norfolk (UK) - Also the group of UK members is growing. Edward Jackson Ltd. is one of the world-wide leading manufacturers of paint roller manufacturing equipment. See www.edwardjacksonltd.com

 All logistical information to be found on www.eurobrush.com.

We wish a good trip to Edinburgh for all delegates and partners.
