PFERD INC. Brand Consolidation
Market Leaders Unite
We are pleased to announce that power and maintenance brush products marketed
under the market-leading brand names Milwaukee Brush, PFERD, and Vantage
have been merged into Advance brand brushes.
Years ago, Advance Brush, Milwaukee Brush and PFERD were competing manufacturers
of brushes. In 1984, Advance Brush and Milwaukee Brush merged to share manufacturing
resources. In 1997, PFERD INC. purchased Advance Brush and Milwaukee Brush,
and has since completed modernization of the factory in Menomonee Falls WI.
As a result, brushes formerly produced on different machines are now of identical
manufacture, both in material and process, using the same state-of-the-art
We have taken the product strengths of each brand, and implemented them
into all production brushes. Now that all brands of brushes are produced
on the same equipment and are of equal quality, we are prepared for the final
step in our process. Consolidation of the 3 brands to the Advance Brush brand
allows us to serve your brush needs better, and to focus on product innovation,
engineering, design and manufacture of the highest quality tools and performance
