In 1898, the Company invested in new technologies by buying mechanical looms in Switzerland.

In 1914, the Company started printing on plain fabrics made of natural silk for women and in 1924 it started printing on viscose fabrics for women for the first time.

In 1921, a new business division was set up devoted to the manufacture of gowns.

Three years later, the company started exporting to France, United Kingdom and Germany.

1936-1946

During the Spanish Civil War, the family business was forced to stop the manufacture of fabrics and exports.

In 1946, the Company started exporting again to South America.

The Company expanded and moved its knitting factory from Reus to Borges Blanques in 1974.

In 1980, the Olesa factory for textile printing was purchased and in 1985 a new dyeing production factory was opened in Massanes, thus doubling its production capacity.

In 1987 the company changed its name to Sedatex SA.

1995-2020

Business expansion, business diversification and digital revolution

In 1995 the 4th generation of the family joined the company management.

From 2003 to 2011 new companies were purchased in Germany and Spain to expand its production capacity and commercial agreements were concluded in Brazil, Mexico, Argentina, Poland and Colombia to consolidate the company’s presence in the international market.

In 2004 Pact04 was created to offer our customers a vertical end-to-end solution.

Later on, in 2009, Sedatex started its digital transformation journey by buying the first digital printing machine and ever since, we have been cutting-edge leaders in the industry.
