Since 1910, Fruhauf Uniforms has been distinguished by its colorful competition winners dressed with
unique themes. Fruhauf uniforms are remembered for their dash of dazzle and respected for their quality and military like
The Fruhauf tradition was built on the expertise of four generations:
wisdom of founder Herman Fruhauf. Herman began his career after the turn of the century, manufacturing ceremonial dress for
lodge and fraternal organizations, and designing band uniforms for town bands and circuses.
The legacy is born
with Herman's son Lou. Combining his musical and artistic talents, Lou began making band uniforms during the Great Depression.
His innovations in scroll-work and design originated many industry standards we use today.
The commitment to individuality
continued by Ludwig's son, Fred. He grew up in the company, working at a young age and traveling to our customers to design
and even deliver the final product. After serving with the United States Navy during World War II, Fred continued his love
of music and band uniforms by playing in local jazz hot spots and manufacturing band uniforms with his father, and later his
sons, Kenneth and Richard.
We at Heartland Trim Inc. want to take this opportunity to thank the Fruhauf family
for their contributions to the Band Uniform Industry.
