During those years, we founded our company with an understanding of sensitivity to people and the environment, passionately committed to the business and its global targets, with a strength in knowledge of the field and the marketplace. Throughout our journey of more than a quarter of a century, we have carried this philosophy with us.

We continue to grow and approach our customers, business partners and colleagues with this principle. We are happy that we have made some of the dreams that we had many years ago come true today. We have never lost our entrepreneurial spirit and the excitement we felt on the first day, either in the business we have carried out or our broader investments.

As the world is changing rapidly, we have adopted the principle of growth in different areas with our motivation based on innovation and sustainability. At the end of 2019, we believe that we have taken an important step that will bring us to our future goals by including Artesa Fabrics in our group.

With the investment in Artesa Fabrics we will create strong synergies in our sector in manufacturing, purchasing, R&D, strategic business partnerships and product technologies. Our most important goal is to continue to develop sustainable products with high added value that make a difference to our customers. We also aim to be an innovation pioneer, becoming a global brand forming strategic partnerships with some of the major players in this sector. Through this journey, our business partners and employees, who share our common vision and values always give us the strength to reach our goals. I sincerely believe that we will all achieve great success together.
