Since its founding in 1879, the company has always orientated itself on the technological progress and ever changing customer demands. Originating from the malleable cast-iron foundry whose first location was in the center of Stuttgart, Germany, over the decades they developed themselves into a highly-specialised and innovative company for chair and furniture casters. The caster production began in 1960 with their own plastic injection moulding facilities and five years later they specialised themselves in chrome-plated ball and furniture casters. In 1985, Gross Stabil Corp., our daughter company in the USA, was founded in Coldwater, Michigan. Then in 1997 the German branch office was relocated to Weil der Stadt, Germany - on the edge of the Black Forest. 

Other important events in the company history was when Gross Stabil USA moved into the new office though still in Coldwater, Michigan USA and then in 2007, the construction of a production line for the new and award-winning caster "MOVE" product range. Next, the market introduction of the MOVE dynamic and MOVE elegance casters in 2009 and the market introduction of the "movetto" high-performance caster.

Gross Stabil Corporation sets benchmarks combining design and function which was rewarded with the internationally renowned reddot design award for our products.
