“Smartex acts as my defect defence lawyer, arming us with crucial information on any issues that may occur along the supply chain.”

- Ruben Matos, Planning Manager

Familitex is one of the main Portuguese companies in the sector, with a great production capacity of circular knitted fabrics for clothing.

Familitex-Tecelagem Lda was founded in 1999. Currently, they have 88 Circular Knitting Machines & produce about 22.000 kg of fabrics per day.

With a strong presence in the national market, Familitex is one of the most well-known companies when it comes to the exportation of knitted fabrics. Throughout a path of solid growth, based on innovation & sustainability, their network of external clients has been broadly expanded in several countries.
 

Integrating Smartex into their existing production was a no-brainer in terms of improving customer satisfaction, waste reduction, & ROI.
