Bierrebi Puts 2009 In The History Books And Focuses On The Future

2009 was a very difficult year for the large majority of textile and apparel producers and as a
result, sales for their suppliers of production machinery likewise suffered. For Bierrebi, the well
known producer of automated die cutting equipment to the tubular knit industry, it was no
different. In addition to bad market conditions other forces acted in unison to create the perfect
storm for the Italian company which has been in business for 35 years in the Bologna region. All
major producers of T-shirts, underwear and fleece products depend heavily on their Bierrebi
machines to efficiently produce the enormous volumes required for their operations. It has been a
testimony to the value of Bierrebi technology and to the dedication of the employees, that the
company weathered the storm and has emerged with a youthful and dynamic new ownership. The new
company BRB Italia, SRL will remain privately held with its headquarters located in Pontecchio
Marconi Italy. The exclusive North American distributor of all Bierrebi technology, (machines,
parts, supplies and technical service), Bierrebi International will continue to operate in
Greenville, SC. The company will continue to service its traditional markets with an added emphasis
on finding new applications and applying new technology to the cutting process.
