Kvadrat acquires Verosol: new collaboration with global expansion
Kvadrat, the global leading manufacturer of high performance design textiles has acquired Verosol.
With the takeover of Verosol, Kvadrat is creating a strong foothold in the market of high-performance textiles. Verosol, is the global specialist in design and manufacturing of functional indoor solar shading fabrics and blinds. Founded in 1965 in The Netherlands, Verosol is the inventor of metallised textiles and pleated blinds.
Its innovative products offer the highest performance in heat and daylight control while maintaining the outside view, this to create a more sustainable building environment.
Anders Byriel, CEO Kvadrat: “Verosol and Kvadrat share the same vision of pushing the technological and aesthetic boundaries in textile design. The company has always been on the forefront of innovation. Being the world leader in aluminium backed textiles, Verosol has an incredible wealth of knowledge and research about using textiles to control temperature, light and to save energy. With Verosol joining the family we get access to critical technology and will help us to create a strong foothold in the roller blind market.”
Jasper Hoek, CEO Verosol: “Kvadrat and Verosol have a relation for many years. This new step is a perfect match for both companies. It brings expertise on high performance window covering and blinds, which is a strategic fit for Kvadrat. For Verosol it brings expansion and access to a customer base which is more easy to reach via the strong global presence of Kvadrat.”
Verosol is developing new high performance metallised fabrics for Kvadrat Shades, a company established by Kvadrat and Coulisse. This fabric will be made available through Kvadrat’s global sales force.
For Verosol’s licencees and existing global network of distribution partners the focus remains unchanged.
With this new collaboration both companies are convinced that they will increase the awareness of the benefits of metallised fabrics on a global scale.
