Ben Luber passed away and third Generation, William Luber, would carry on the family business with his wife Lynda. Bill was invited to go to the Canton Fair in China, and was then approached to meet directly with government export companies to Beijing and Shanghai. He was able to place 99% of his Eastern European articles in China, which produced high quality goods. Lubertex was able to expand into poly/cotton and other commodity items. This relationship with China has carried on to this day.
