Deniertex was founded in May 1992 by Jaime Arnau after spending more than 20 years as the manager of a famous company in the sector.
At the beginning, the company was located in the centre of Barcelona, near the Sagrada Familia, and we were dedicated to the manufacture of fabrics for infant clothing and men's shirts, although we soon expanded our product portfolio to include silk for women's clothing.
Consolidation and expansion
In 1996, due to a lack of space, we moved to Sant Just D’Esvern to a plant measuring over 1,500 m2. This time saw the largest expansion in the company with the inclusion of the second generation.
We invested strongly in textile machinery which we held at another site in Sant Celoni which was exclusively dedicated to this.
In 2002, we moved again to our current facilities in Sant Feliu de Llobregat. This is a plant measuring over 4,000 m2 from which we can manage the storage and distribution of our products.
From its beginnings, Deniertex was always clear about its international vocation, but it was only from 1996, with our foundations in place, that we began to be established outside of Spain.
The first countries into which we expanded were France and Portugal, basically because of their proximity. From then, we began to attend the Feria Tissu Premier, in Lille.
By 1999, we were already working in practically every country in the European Union, especially France, Germany and the United Kingdom. Visits to the Première Vision (Paris) and Moda In (Milan) exhibitions became essential dates in our diaries.
The leap to international level was taken even further by entering into markets in the United States, South America (with a regular presence at the Colombiatex Exhibition in Medellín), New Zealand and Australia, an expansion which we completed around 2007.
Exports currently represent 55% of our volume of business. We develop specific collections, both with distributors and manufacturers. Our immediate plans include an approach to the Russian market, principally Moscow, and we have also initiated contact in some African countries.
