Ed and Priscilla Bruske
In 1971, with a little money of his own and the backing of enthusiastic family members, Ed and his wife, Priscilla, began their own business, Bruske Enterprises, Inc., in a little screw machine parts factory in Tinley Park, known as Turnco Products. There they began manufacturing the indestructible Bruske Brush. With the succession of Steve Schafer as President in 2015, Mr. Bruske was named Chairman of the Board.
Steve Schafer, husband of Ed and Priscilla's eldest daughter Diane, joined Bruske Products in 1983. Beginning as an industrial salesman with a northern-Illinois territory, he soon became both the Retail Sales Manager and Vice President while also overseeing operations at the factory in Tinley Park, IL. In April of 2015, Steve was named President, succeeding Ed Bruske in that position.
Besides growing up in the family business, Susan has been working full time for twenty years, as executive assistant, office manager, and Payroll/HR.
