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 our own plastic injection moulding facilities and five years later we specialised 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 were when Gross Stabil Corp. moved into the new office in Coldwater, Michigan USA. Then in 2007, Gross + Froelich constructed and implemented a new production line for the award-winning "MOVE" caster range. Next, were the market introduction of the MOVE dynamic and MOVE elegance casters in 2009 and then the market introduction of the "movetto" high-performance caster.

Gross + Froelich set benchmarks combining design and function which was rewarded with the internationally renowned reddot design award for our products.
