Gerber Technology Partners with Fashion Enter’s Factory and Training Academy, London (10/23/17)
Gerber Technology, the world leader in integrated software and automation solutions for the apparel
and industrial markets, is pleased to announce a partnership with Fashion Enter/FashionCapital,
London, by supporting both their commercial factory and training academy. “We are very pleased
about the integration of our AccuMark® software and digitizing solution into the curriculum of
Fashion Enter and look forward to a successful partnership”, said Yvonne Heinen-Foudeh, marketing
and communications director, EMEA for Gerber Technology.
Gerber’s mission is to make it easy for any one in the world using textiles, leather, composites or
other flexible materials to go from concept to market quickly and seamlessly. “We have been
empowering educators with technology to help prepare the next generation of fashion leaders for
nearly 50 years. The success of the industry relies on students graduating with knowledge of how
technologies like PLM, CAD and smart machines used in manufacturing are all connected and
essential to the work flow and Fashion Enter/FashionCapital is the ideal partner to support our
mission,” continued Heinen-Foudeh.
“Over the last six months, we have expanded our Fashion Studio service by 28 new accounts
including Huntsman and Gormley and Gamble,” Jenny Holloway, founder of the social enterprise
Fashion Enter said. “The pattern cutting team headed by Lauren Loftus and supported by an
excellent six-person team of pattern queens is flying. The experienced members of our team
including Lauren and Debbie Smith have a strong knowledge of Gerber’s AccuMark software. I put
my faith in their experience and knew it was best to listen to the experts! We have therefore
invested into the latest Gerber CAD system to ensure that the accuracy of detail is embedded into
our pattern and grading services.”
Gerber Technology has developed partnerships with over 1,400 colleges, universities, technical and
fashion schools across the world, providing them with solutions and expertise to help the teachers
prepare students with the skills they require in today’s competitive fashion workplace.
