Reusche & Co.

In 1906 Louis Reusche founded L. Reusche & Co. offering an incomparable selection of colors of every imaginable hue and texture to the discerning china artist. Importing the very finest colors for blending from England, France and Germany, L. Reusche & Co.’s popularity has stood the test of time.  After becoming an exclusive distributor of Drakenfeld colors, L. Reusche & Co. soon began developing color for the glass industry.

Trans World Supplies, Inc., which is Reusches’ parent company, bought Reusche in 1988 when it was located in New Jersey.  Mr. Jon Rarick spent eight years commuting from Denver to New Jersey, getting the company ready for relocation. 

Since Reusche & Co. relocated to Greeley in 1996 it has continued to thrive due to the constant introduction of new products and excellent service. Reusches’ idea of success is making contributions to yours.
