New center for ShapeKnit products and production in our facility in Grand Rapids
Towards end of 2019, Gabriel A/S acquired the Germany-based knitting company Visiotex GmbH. Following the acquisition, we have successfully established a new design and innovation centre in Germany, and the ShapeKnit production has been upgraded in accordance with Gabriel’s production and quality systems.

As part of our strategy to be close to our partners and customers around the world, we are now expanding even further and are establishing a centre of excellence for ShapeKnit products and production at our facility in Grand Rapids, North America.

To provide even stronger support and service to our North American customers, Liz Hilton joins our US team as ShapeKnit Designer. Liz will play an important role in establishing the ShapeKnit product range in the US and Canadian markets. She will be working closely together with customers as well as with our European team to ensure the global availability of ShapeKnit solutions from a network of local production sites on various continents.
