We started as a family business more than 50 years ago. Now, as one of the world’s most successful sourcing and distribution networks in the textile industry, we still work with the same passion.
Today, more than five decades later, we can proudly call ourselves Europe’s leading textile supplier. But what we are most proud of isn’t where we are right now: It’s the loyalty of our long-time employees, clients, suppliers and the way of working that brought us here.
Throughout the years, our company has undergone countless changes, but the essence of what we do remains the same. We offer personalised service, delivering premium quality yarns and fabrics.
It is what we have always done, what we do best and what we will keep doing as we guide this company into the future.
As Chemitex grows, so does its environmental and social responsibility. We see it as a personal challenge to guarantee that Chemitex's impact becomes more positive every day: By donating a percentage of our profits to social initiatives, as well as, by driving and innovating the industry’s worldwide standards and reducing our carbon footprint.
Chemitex is founded in Brussels. Its activity was limited to only a handful of yarn types.
A very important first step in diversification is taken: Chemitex starts its fashion department.
Chemitex receives its first Ecotex certificate, encouraging the company in its choice for sustainability.
Chemitex demonstrates its commitment to Human Rights with the first of many social audits in its manufacturers' workplaces.
The opening of an office in China and another in Pakistan asserts Chemitex’s global ambition and hands-on production approach.
A new warehouse is opened in Puurs, Belgium - a strategic location that allows Chemitex to drastically shorten lead times for European customers.
Another warehouse and office are opened, this time in Porto, Portugal, boosting Chemitex's reactivity in the south of Europe.
Already having expanded its range from yarns to a vast amount of textiles over the years, Chemitex adds mattress fabrics to its product range.
Our success is largely driven by our team and their unrelenting focus on delivering results the right way. We pride ourselves in saying that most of our employees have stayed with us for many years. This is a statement to what Chemitex has to offer: the possibility for continued learning and growth.
