Fabric Systems joins Kvadrat Soft Cells on textile acoustics

16-12-2016

Today, the leading Danish producer of high performance acoustic solutions Kvadrat Soft Cells has announced the acquisition of 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 onsite 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: “I am delighted that Kvadrat Soft Cells and Fabric Systems will now come together as one strong team for the textile acoustics market. With Fabric Systems’ proven track record and strong network 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. 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.“
