Stuller and Gemvision Corporation join forces to aid retailers
DTC Sightholder partners with jewelry software company for customization
Lafayette, LA (16 January 2009) - Stuller, Inc. recently announced a new strategic partnership with Gemvision Corporation, a jewelry-specific, software technology firm based in Davenport, IA.
According to both Matthew Stuller, CEO, president and founder of Stuller, Inc., and Jeff High, Gemvision founder and president, the move signals both companies’ “strategic next step” to further enhance customization for retail jewelers.
“We plan to tap into Gemvision’s market-leading technical expertise, which includes a number of CAD/CAM design and milling solutions,” Stuller says. “Gemvision’s emphasis on making technology easy to use and profitable for jewelers fits nicely within our Stuller Studio™ customization program. In today’s challenging environment, creating unique, one-of-a-kind jewelry for discriminating consumers is a critical profit strategy for retail jewelers.”
Stuller Studio™, formerly known as Stuller’s “Have It Your Way” program, was introduced in 1995. The program is designed to provide jewelers the ability to design custom pieces using Stuller’s vast inventory of mountings, findings, diamonds and gemstones. The program also provides retail jewelers benefits such as effective inventory management and reduced overhead costs.
Gemvision Corporation has facilities in the United States and the United Kingdom, as well as a global network of Authorized Dealers providing two and three-dimensional CAD/CAM software, milling systems and both additive and subtractive prototyping systems.
“Gemvision’s industry-leading technology, coupled with Stuller’s achievements as the industry standard for providing products and services to the retail jeweler, will make custom design and CAD/CAM more accessible to retail jewelers in a highly profitable way,” High says. “This new strategic partnership will ultimately bring custom jewelry design to more end consumers.”
Stuller, Inc. is headquartered in Lafayette, LA, and was founded by Matthew Stuller in 1970. The DTC Sightholder has 10 operations located in three continents around the world, and provides a wide range of goods and services for jewelry professionals.
