This well-established Portuguese company is in the business for over thirty-five years manufacturing clothing.

The SME involved its customers in the development of its products to safeguard the health and well-being of health workers in the workplace, understanding a range of factors about personal protective equipment use like comfort and reusability, and not just its technical capacity to protect the wearer from infection. The company has developed several types of gowns fit for use in hospitals or similar use, all approved for NP EN 13795-1:2020, waterproof, reusable, sterilizable, with finishes on the cuff and collar in corrugated mesh, squeezes with springs in the neckline and ties at the waist.

In addition to the standard products, the company also tailors its services to partners looking for their own label solution. The company provides a fully accountable system according to ISO 9000 and ISO 13485:2016 (Medical Device Manufacturing) guidelines. The Portuguese firm plans to grow the international side of its business and is therefore seeking to appoint distributors for its textile medical solutions and build brand reputation. The company would also consider requests for manufacturing agreements with partners who are looking for a quality one-stop production partner.
