GW Background


“Everybody has to re-invent and re-orientate himself or herself. This is what we live everyday for the well-being of our customers. We are well-positioned for the future.”
Gerhard Weber, CEO

At the beginning of the exceptional success story of GERRY WEBER International AG in 1973, there was a vision of bringing together fashion, lifestyle and experience. Through intuition, visions and the determination of the founders as well as a strong team, an international, listed fashion and lifestyle company emerged.

GERRY WEBER is fashion and lifestyle.
The five strong fashion brands GERRY WEBER, GERRY WEBER EDITION, G.W., TAIFUN and SAMOON by GERRY WEBER inspire women worldwide and stand for a lively lifestyle – exciting, modern and irresistibly feminine. With a clear collection statement, every target group is adressed individually. Many years of experience about the target groups allow the company to set its own trends and to rise above in a highly competitive market.

GERRY WEBER is lifestyle and experience.
Lively, sophisticated and dynamic – a complete world is built around the fashion brands. In the GERRY WEBER WORLD, brand environment and experience are connected: the GERRY WEBER Stadium – a multifunctional arena for international sporting events and top-class concerts with 13,000 seats, its own event and convention centre, a golf course as well as the GERRY WEBER Sportpark hotel with an exclusive spa, highlight the lifestyle idea of the GERRY WEBER Group.

Innovation and continuous improvement
Know how, courage for innovative changes and openness for new ideas are the motor for GERRY WEBER´s success story. With the introduction of RFID (radio-frequency identification) in November 2009, the company has set up itself as a pioneer in the fashion sector. By now, all of its own operated shops worldwide and more than 26 million of pieces of garments per year are equipped with this technology, and therefore the logistics and retail processes as well as anti-shoplifting have been improved. 

GERRY WEBER goes global
With more than 860 HOUSES of GERY WEBER and mono-label stores worldwide, more than 2,850 shop areas and successful brand online-shops, GERRY WEBER International AG is one of the most famous and successful German fashion and lifestyle companies. The company, with round about 5,000 employees worldwide, continues on its way to become a global player, quickly: international trend-scouting, distribution channels in 62 countries, international partners like Spain’s largest department store chain El Corte Inglés, department stores in Hong Kong and Jakarta or partners in Cairo and Toronto are part of the successful internationalization of GERRY WEBER.
