Ziel Inc PBC is a startup company headquartered in Newburgh, New York with its daughter company Ziel NL BV located in Groningen, NL. The core of the technology team is located in Groningen – where we are building and assembling the Ziel Platform; this is our disruptive solution to address the following:

The apparel industry is in need of a paradigm shift. The traditional retail model is slowly unravelling due to a saturated clothing industry that features long lead times, everyday coupons and discounts, and end-of-season write-offs. Our answer: we have created an on-demand business model that significantly reduces this oversupply and waste – benefiting people, profit, and the planet too.

Ziel was founded on the principle of bringing on-demand manufacturing to the apparel industry. Our technology, the Ziel Platform supercharges design, manufacturing, sourcing, and delivery of apparel based on actual consumer demand, reducing the waste, overproduction and pollution of yesteryear. Ziel also supports on-demand apparel manufacturing with its platform, allowing brands and retailer to market-test and produce in limited runs custom collections in a fraction of the time previously available. We have clients now selling on-demand top quality, custom sustainable apparel with no minimum order and delivery in under 10 days.

As we strive to change the industry, we do it by testing the Ziel Platform in our own manufacturing centers. You can trust our solution because we have already taken it to market, learned and adapted – we are ever-improving. We are always learning and pushing the edge of what is needed and possible.
