It all began with the production of yard goods in a warp knitting facility, which was in fact, the nucleus of the young company.

During the mid 60s, the production facilities were expanded to include large-diameter circular knitting machines.

In 1994, production was increased through the construction of a circular knitting facility with French circular knitting machines.

These divisions are being continuously expanded and developed.

Every year in these divisions / warehouses, over 500 machines produce approx. 50 to 60 million square metres of fabric on an area of some 36,000 m².
