Kvadrat Soft Cells, one of the leading Danish producers of high performance acoustic solutions, has recently acquired the British acoustic manufacturer Fabric Systems. The 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.
Arne Molberg, CEO Kvadrat Soft Cells, states, “I am delighted that Kvadrat Soft Cells and Fabric Systems in the UK will now come together as one strong team for the textile acoustics market in the UK. With Fabric Systems’ proven track record and strong network in the British building industry, and Kvadrat Soft Cells’ strong presence in the A&D segment we expect our team to be able service current and new client with a full concept approach.”
Rob Berryman will stay on board for the longer term and reinvest a part of his shares in the new Kvadrat Soft Cells.
The acquisition of Fabric Systems reaffirms Kvadrat’s strong commitment to the UK market, next to the business entity Kvadrat Ltd, founded in 1987 in London and its majority stake of the British textile mill Wooltex, which is producing more than 85% of Kvadrat’s woolen textile offering.
Molberg adds, “The merger adds nicely to our ambitious growth plans for Kvadrat Soft Cells, where Fabric Systems will be a great asset to our global portfolio.”
