Established 20 years ago, Bru Textiles is now a world leader in ‘textile converting’. Led by the South African entrepreneurial brothers Jason and Gary Neiman, Bru Textiles designs high-quality interior materials that are produced and sold around the world. The logistic centre of this fast-growing company is in Kontich, in a facility purpose-built for them in 2001 by SVR-ARCHITECTS. This was quickly followed by a number of phases that saw it expand in tune with the company’s growth. The fourth phase has now been completed. The architects designed the new construction as an outer shell around the business. It has become a unique ‘cathedral to textiles’ where 120,000 rolls of material are processed in full automation with the utmost precision. The total-concept of the building and its interior has resulted in one enormous logistical machine from which Bru Textiles has continued its steady expansion.
SVR-ARCHITECTS designed this unique project without compromising on quality – reflecting the quality associated with Bru Textiles – at a competitive price and within the proposed deadline.
The smooth co-operation between the client and architect ensured Bru Textiles was able to remain focused on its clients during the building period.
