Gerber has opened a new state-of-the-art innovation centre in the heart of New York City during the annual FashionTech conference, Ideation, with more than 300 attendees. The 18,000 square feet centre will provide visitors with a unique experience that will help them stay connected to latest trends in fashion and apparel, and flexible material processing.

The Gerber innovation centre is located on the 19th floor of the Starrett-Lehigh building in New York City, which is home to many other fashion industry icons and long-standing Gerber customers, the company said in a press release.

In addition to the end-to-end experience, the Gerber innovation centre will also serve as an innovation hub for educational institutions and major companies from across the industry. It will be a space for partners, industry associations, students, designers and manufacturers to come together to redefine the future. The space will host a number of forums, workshops and collaborative working sessions where industry leaders can come together and prepare ways to address the new pace of the industry. The innovation centre will be available for industry events in fashion, home and leisure, transportation, and other high-tech markets.

“Our innovation centre is the first of its kind in the industry. Visitors will meet our experts and experience first-hand how our end-to-end platform can enable an on-demand workflow, taking personalised consumer requests from design to print, cut and sew in a matter of hours. We are not aware of any other facility in the world that allows visitors to experience an end-to-end platform that features the latest 2D/3D CAD and PLM solutions, as well as Industry 4.0 enabled smart machines,” Mohit Uberoi, chief executive officer at Gerber said.
