About Maximilian Markus Löw-Beer

Max and his brothers Josef and Salamon took over the factory in Svitavka from their father Moses Low-Beer in 1853. In 1858 they obtained the right to produce wool goods. In 1862 they built in Brno a factory on Čechyňská Street and a sugar refinery in Ungereinen. The headquarters was in Svitávka with branches in Brno and Vienna. Member of the chamber of commerce of Brno.

From "The Löw-Beer Dynasty: Woolen Industry Tradition in the Heart of Moravia," online:

Brothers Aaron (1770?–1853?) and Jakob (1786?–1864) Löw-Beer from Boskovice bought a woollen yarn manufacture in Václavská Street in Brno. Aaron‘s and Jakob‘s descendants extended the family business with a weaving and finishing mill and, in the 1880‘s, the company employed 1,200 people for whom they introduced health and pension insurance. In 1879, Max Löw-Beer (1829–1887) became the sole proprietor of the company and in 1862 founded another factory in Brno in Křenová Street. He then extended his enterprise to Sagan (in what was then Prussia) and Záhorská Ves in Slovakia. The headquarters of the company became Svitávka in the Blansko region with branch offices in Brno and Vienna. After Max‘s death the company was taken over by his son Alfred (1872–1939). It was thanks to him that the architectural treasure Villa Tugendhat was created and became part of the 20th century UNESCO cultural heritage. The world famous architect Mies van der Rohe built the villa for Alfred‘s daughter, Greta Tugendhat, in a plot in Černopolní Street which she received as a wedding gift from her father.

Maximilian Löw-Beer was a board member of the Jewish community of Brno. He was buried in Jewish cemetery on Nezamyslova street.
