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, 
founder GERRY WEBER International AG

At the beginning of the exceptional success story of GERRY WEBER International AG in 1973, there was a vision of creating a new and unique combination of fashion, lifestyle and experience. Through intuition, vision 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 six strong fashion brands GERRY WEBER, GERRY WEBER EDITION, GERRY WEBER ACCESSORIES, G.W., TAIFUN and SAMOON by GERRY WEBER inspire women worldwide and are synonymous with a lively lifestyle – exciting, modern and irresistibly feminine.

GERRY WEBER is lifestyle and experience.
In the GERRY WEBER WORLD, brand environment and experience are combined: the GERRY WEBER Stadium – a multifunctional arena for international sporting events and top-class concerts with 11,500 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 ideas 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 approximately 30 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 700 company managed HOUSES of GERRY WEBER and mono-label stores worldwide, more than 2,800 shop-in-shops 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 more than 5,000 employees worldwide, continues on its path to rapidly becoming a global player; international trend-scouting, distribution channels in 62 countries, international partners like Spain’s largest department store chain, El Corte Inglés, the American department stores, Bloomingdale’s and Dillard’s, department stores in Hong Kong and Jakarta, as well as strong business development in Russia and the Middle East are all elements of the successful internationalisation of GERRY WEBER.
