Today, Kvadrat Soft Cells, has announced the acquisition of the British acoustic manufacturer Fabric Systems.
This move will create a powerful textile acoustics entity, which will be able to offer full service in aesthetic, high quality acoustic solutions. With the merger everything from design development, production, logistics and on-site installation will be controlled and serviced in-house. Resulting in becoming more agile on the production side, and combined with an extended dedicated team of acoustic professionals, it will guarantee a very high service level to both existing and new clients.
With the addition of the product lines of Fabric Systems, Kvadrat Soft Cells will have one of the most compelling offerings in textile acoustics in the market, ranging from complex custom-made solutions to standard post-fit panels. Both available in Kvadrat textiles, the solutions of Kvadrat Soft Cells and Fabric Systems, complement each other, both functionally and aesthetically.
In the UK, Fabric Systems will be sold via Kvadrat Ltd. The Fabric Systems team will stay the same and the focus will be on creating extra value for clients. Outside the UK, the Fabrics Systems product offering will be part in the product offering of Kvadrat Soft Cells and will be available worldwide through Kvadrat’s subsidiaries. A market roll out is planned for 2017 – 2018.
Rob Berryman, current Managing Director of Fabric Systems will become Managing Director UK of Kvadrat Soft Cells and will work closely with Kvadrat Ltd’s Country Director, Peter Simonsen. Together they will build a team and coordinate all efforts with the acoustic team towards clients and projects both on acoustics and textile solutions from Kvadrat in general.
