Gerriets was founded over 60 years ago as a textile wholesaler. Over the years, the core business has changed as they became more focused on theatrical systems and scenery products. A growing team and the installation of a sewing room were the first steps on a long journey to what they are today.
They are in the position to manage the requirements of the Metropolitan Opera as well as the requirements of a small civic center - their products range from simple backdrops to custom hand painted main curtains. The growing specialist knowledge combined to material know-how allows them to grow and to widen their range of goods continuously.
In addition to their corporate headquarters in Umkirch, Germany, Gerriets consists of subsidiaries based in Great Britain, Austria, France, Spain, Italy, Greece, Belgium, the Netherlands and the United States. In 1992 a state-of-the-art production factory was built in Volgelsheim, France (Alsace Region) with specially equipped workshops for sewing, PVC welding, metal work and a paint shop. In Umkirch and Volgelsheim, a staff of 160 people works on the delivery and production of the large range products worldwide.
Their focus is theatrical systems. Their selection of products includes projection screens, structural fabrics, decorative fabrics, stage velvets, muslins, dance floors, stage and scenic nettings, special effect materials, track systems, truss systems and stage platforms. From custom sewn soft goods to raw material, Gerriets is your trusted partner.
