March 15th of each year marks the anniversary of Brewster Washers’ founding by Bill Brewster, Jr., in 1919.

 

This year’s anniversary, our 105th, is a bittersweet one for the company, with the passing of Sal Freda, Jr. in September of 2023.

In the 30+ years that Sal was with Brewster, and particularly those when he served as President, the company made significant strides as it opened its doors to new technologies, forged pathways into new markets, and experienced unprecedented growth. Sal was a great mentor, leader, and friend to us all.

As we remember Sal and mark this historic milestone, our deepest thanks go out to our employees, to our valued clients, and to all those who have made this incredible journey possible, as we look to the future with great promise and pledge to embrace the challenges that lie before us. 

ROI Influencers: Women in Business 2024 -- Brielle Freda

ROI-Influencers-women-in-business-2024-brielle-freda.jpg

On this International Women's Day 2024, we take a moment to recognize our very own Brielle Freda, President of Brewster Washers.

Brielle is the fifth-generation leader of our 105-year-old company that takes on some “out of this world” projects — as in, our parts are on the Hubble Telescope, Mars Lunar Rover and on all the Apollo and Space Shuttle missions. (Brewster Washers also manufactures custom parts for the DOD, EV / Automotive, Robotics, Computer, Aircraft, Medical and many other vertical markets.)

She is an outstanding role model for all young women in business today and someone we are all extremely proud of!

In Memoriam
Salvatore T. Freda, Jr.
(1960 - 2023)

It is with heavy hearts that we announce our leader and President of Brewster Washers, Sal Freda Jr., passed away surrounded by family on the morning of 9/25/23.

Born in Newark, NJ, he was raised in Belleville prior to settling in Cedar Grove 27 years ago. Salvatore graduated from Immaculate Conception High School in 1978 and would later attend Seton Hall University, graduating in 1982 with a bachelor's degree. In his leisure time he enjoyed playing golf, going to Seton Hall basketball games and trips with his family to Cape Cod.

Predeceased by his father, Salvatore Freda, Sr., he is survived by his mother, Jean (Anelli) Freda; his devoted wife, Mary Freda; loving children, Thomas Freda, Brielle Freda Seminerio and her husband, Adam; adoring granddaughter, Aubrey Seminerio; and dear sister, Sharon Freda Hornecker.

Brielle Freda Seminerio is Someone to Watch!

Heartfelt congratulations are in order for our own Brielle Freda Seminerio, Operations Manager at Brewster Washers, on receiving the One to Watch award from Commerce and Industry Association of NJ (CIANJ), as they honor Enterprising Women in Commerce.

 

The announcement was made at CIANJ’s 3rd Annual awards ceremony held on August 16, 2023 at the Glen Ridge Country Club.

 

Brielle was nominated by her father and President of Brewster Washers, Salvatore Freda, Jr., for her ability to take on new and greater responsibilities, thus assuming a more challenging role within the company, as Mr. Freda recovers from a battle with leukemia. 

 

Please join Brewster Washers in congratulating Brielle on the important recognition this well-deserved award represents. She is an outstanding role model for all young women in business today and someone we are all extremely proud of!
