A brief summary of the company’s growth history
In the early days of our family-owned industrial group, cords and tapes were manufactured. Tape manufacturing focused mainly on the footwear of the time.
The outbreak of the Spanish Civil War derailed industrial activity. The nationalisation of industry took place.
In order to stand out from the competition, special new tapes that “automatically” gathered curtains went into production: by pulling the tape cords, the pleats were made to measure. Up until then, curtain pleats were measured, folded and sewn “manually”.
Special industrial premises were built for the gathering tape line. “Cintas y Pasamanería, S.A." (CINPASA) was officially established. A period dedicated to experimenting in wholesale tape manufacturing began.
A new Export Department was created. The Rufflette and Cortin brands began to be marketed. An extraordinary evolution in tape-making occurred when a system was found to manufacture bordered tape using high-speed weaving looms.
Spanish patent "Procedure for the formation of a double fabric in needle looms for tape-making". For the first time, an additional independent thread was added to the warp, which was used as a weft to weave pockets.
European patent granted
The patent granted in Spain in 1981 was extended to Europe. This patent helped to increase sales and this revenue provided a boost for other investments.
