At the meeting, Mr. Deiters gave everyone a signed copy of his book, “ Rusland aangekleed Rusland uitgekleed (30 jaar werken in Rusland voor Beghaus-groep) “
He gave a parting words , , “ ….. thanks to each and everyone and happy to see you all, successful and well.”
The meeting with the group came about purely by chance. It was sometime in May 2010 when Mr. Deiters , while surfing the internet, came across Munting Nayon website and its column of BERGHAUS GIRLS.
On May 18, 2010, he sent an email message to MN’s editor Eddie Flores stating, “ …. I am however often in Holland and would like to arrange a meeting with you and the people behind this wonderfull idea of keeping the Berghaus spirit alive….”
The email message was forwarded to Curie Arts-Sawit, a former Berghaus employee now residing in the Netherlands.
In 1972, Mr Deiters was appointed by his father Ben Deiters as Director of Berghaus Company until it was sold to the British group Coats Vyella in 1993. He stayed with the group as president until 1999.
At present, Mr. Deiters is still active in the boards of several garment and textile companies in the Netherlands ,USA and Switzerland.
