Fuller Brush will be featured on John Ratzenberger’s

Made In America

Belz Factory Outlet World Pigeon Forge store ranked 2nd in Fuller Brush Company


PIGEON FORGE, Tennessee, April 1, 2007 – The Fuller Brush, a company specializing in home care products, will be featured on the Travel Channel’s John Ratzenberger’s Made In America on April 10 at 9 p.m.  The show documents the men and women of America whose products are American-made.  The Fuller Brush store at Belz Factory Outlet World Pigeon Forge is ranked 2nd in sales among the Fuller Brush Company.  

The episode featuring Fuller Brush will contain an eight-minute, three-part segment on the Twisted Wire and Strip Brushes. 

According to Bruce Trentham, manager of the Fuller Brush Store at Belz Factory Outlet World Pigeon Forge, the segment on Fuller Brush will focus on how the twisted wire and strip brushes are made at the main production factory in Kansas.

 “The twisted wire and strip design is a technique used to make the brushes,” said Trentham.  “Fuller Brush’s main focus is on quality.  The made-in-America twisted wire and strip technique adds to the quality of the different brushes including bath, body, scrub, toilet, and car care brushes.”

“The number one thing we emphasize is the quality of our products,” added Trentham.  “We constantly enforce that in our satisfaction guaranteed policy.” 

In an industry where many of the products are being outsourced overseas, Fuller Brush remains proud of its commitment to American manufacturing. 

“It’s exciting to know that Fuller Brush is being featured in a show about American-made products,” said Trentham.  “A lot of products are made overseas and then shipped here, whereas we make and sell our products right here in America.  It’s all about maintaining high standards.”

It doesn’t come as a surprise to Trentham that Fuller Brush is being featured on a show all about American made products.

“Fuller Brush used to be one of the most famous companies in America,” said Trentham.  “There have even been movies made about us.” 

The Fuller Brush Man starring Red Skelton and The Fuller Brush Girl starring Lucille Ball were both centered on Fuller Brush.

The Fuller Brush team at Pigeon Forge is thrilled to know their company is being recognized nationally, and hope the recognition will continue to draw people to their Belz Factory Outlet World store.

The Fuller Brush store offers a variety of custom-made brushes, home and business care products and personal care brushes.  The Fuller Brush store has been at the Belz Factory Outlet World since the mall opened in 1988.
