7/28/2010 - Gribetz International Achieves Quilter Production Milestone

Paragon quilterGribetz International®, a Global Systems Group® company, recently achieved a remarkable production milestone. The 800th Paragon® quilter was built and shipped from Sunrise, Florida, in May. This makes the Paragon series of quilters the most popular Gribetz quilt machine in the world.


When introduced over 10 years ago, the Paragon had many advanced features that set it apart from previous quilt machines. Early developments like an adjustable presser foot, high speed operation and powerful computer controls made the Paragon very versatile and well suited for manufacturers’ changing product lines. Like its predecessor models, nearly all the machines remain in operation today. The Paragon’s popularity is strengthened today with continuous improvements featuring technologies like Windows CE® computer platform, AutoSchedule®/BatchMode, Posi-Trim™ tail control, PatternLink software and others which make this quilter series more productive than ever.


Gribetz has shipped thousands of quilt machines into the mattress industry during its 70 year heritage. Similar current Gribetz quilters like the Axiom®, Reliance® and Legacy® serve specific needs of mattress producers, but the Paragon has proven to be the most popular Gribetz quilt machine in its class.


Previous Gribetz quilter models like 4300, 4300E and 4300E+ all had advanced technologies for their era and served as a strong foundation for development of the Paragon series. These previous models revolutionized mattress quilting with Tack & Jump® (Class IV sewing) and Point & Sew® touch screen controls nearly 20 years ago. During the 1990’s Gribetz machines pushed sewing speeds to new levels and introduced Pattern Link, a quilt pattern style that remains popular on today’s Paragon.


Congratulations, Gribetz International, for shipping Paragon number 800, making it the most popular Gribetz quilt machine in its class.
