Gribetz International, part of Leggett & Platt’s machinery division Global Systems Group, has achieved a production milestone. The company built its 800th Paragon quilter and shipped it from its plant in Sunrise, Fla., in May, making Paragon quilters the most popular Gribetz quilt machine in its class.
When Gribetz introduced Paragon more than a decade ago, it included features such as an adjustable presser foot, high–speed operation and computer controls. Today, most of those first machines are still in operation, according to the company.
More recent technological innovations to the Paragon line include the Windows CE operating system, AutoSchedule/BatchMode functions, Posi–Trim tail control and PatternLink software.
