Gerber welcomes Fusalp to Digital Solutions family

Fusalp develops and clothes both ski enthusiasts and Olympic champions. © FusalpGerber Technology has announced that French skiwear brand Créations Fusalp has chosen YuniquePLM to power the company from design to production. “We found that Gerber’s YuniquePLM was the most robust system to effectively deliver data from our creative team through to production of the garments,” said Sophie Duflos and Odile Renard, both drivers of the supply chain at Fusalp.

Since 1952, Fusalp has been developing and clothing both ski enthusiasts and Olympic champions with functional outerwear and fashionable knitted sweaters and sweatshirts, made with materials such as mixed Italian merino wool and viscose. “A reflection of the brand's heritage, our sweater/knit/fleece range provides outstanding comfort and warmth,” the company says.

The company was founded by tailors who created the first “fuseau” des Alpes, in reference to the famous skiing spindle. Ever since, Fusalp has been drawing dynamic silhouettes to create slender lines allying technicality and performance without compromising on style and comfort.

Since 2014, the new owners have very created a new dynamic and have made highly-favourable decisions to support the expansion of Fusalp, through the repositioning of the brand on the fashion market and the extension of the product range from sportswear to urban and fashion wear, which required a performing PLM solution.

Créations Fusalp has begun its digital journey with Gerber’s product lifecycle software YuniquePLM, designed to enhance data connectivity from the creative’s team Adobe Illustrator through to the ERP systems. The availability of YuniquePLM on the Cloud was a contributing factor to Fusalp’s decision, while enabling its team to streamline their workflow and to support the company’s growth.

“We are excited to add such an iconic brand to the Gerber family,” said Bill Brewster, Vice President and General Manager, Enterprise Software Solutions for Gerber Technology. “Enabling connectivity to support companies with seeing their version of the truth in one place is the goal of our software innovations.”

Fusalp will also be integrating Gerber’s AccuMark software with YuniquePLM, to improve efficiency and gain better control of its pattern grading and marker data. “The Gerber team was extremely helpful, and we appreciated how they brought so many ideas to the table while we were evaluating our options,” continued Sophie.
