Originally started as a small sailmaking company in Sneek in 1897, Gaastra has grown to become a functional sportswear brand with a nautical signature with branch offices in the Netherlands, Belgium, Germany and France. From its headquarters in Amstelveen, a staff of 60 enthusiastic employees is continually and passionately focused on further strengthening the company's results. Gaastra has set out an ambitious growth strategy, based on the same cornerstones that have made the brand what it is today: nautical passion, pure quality and enthusiasm.
Gaastra is part of the McGregor Fashion Group B.V., which was established in 1993. The McGregor Fashion Group B.V. is a European fashion house focused on designing, marketing, distributing and selling men's, ladies' and children's clothing in the upmarket segment.
