Our history

Flanders Brush Makers has a rich history. It started as the Hochepied brush factory in 1944.

Our philosophy


Consumers are looking for handy and reliable utensils and tools and prefer a trendy and sustainable design than a cheaper alternative. Flanders Brush Makers demonstrate that they are committed to new Belgian top products, innovative and attractive brushes produced entirely in Flanders. In doing so, we make a difference for our customer, the retailer, by increasing their turnover in brushes with strong brands or private label solutions. We make a difference for the end user with a good-looking product that makes cleanings easier and more pleasant. An affordable product with a longer service life.

Our core values

We are convinced as a family business that the success of Flanders Brush Makers is largely due to the values that we have cherished for more than 75 years. More than ever before, we see it as our duty to continue to watch over these values so that future generations can continue to produce brushes in Belgium in a socially responsible, economical and ecological way.
