A French company specializing in the manufacturing and distribution of high quality orthopedic products wishes to broaden its range of suppliers. The company is looking specifically for suppliers of textiles in Eastern Europe, Spain, Portugal and Tunisia under a manufacturing agreement.
Leader in Italy and settled in France, this French company has been specializing in elastic compression.
The company belongs to an international group with a 100-year experience in the orthopaedic area. The company manufactures and distributes innovative and custom-made solutions in phlebological, lymphatic, orthopaedic and sports areas.
Offering a complete range of products for many parts of the body (neck, knee, ankles, feet), the French SME has also a long history in producing therapeutic footware.
Three core activities are proposed:
- Phlebology and lymphology : stockings, socks, tights for veinous compression.
-Rheumatology and traumatology :lumbar belt, knee pad, post-op knee braces.
-Sports and orthopaedic : socks, compression arm sleeve, thigh supports.
The products are based on continuous improvement of the manufacturing processes and the use of innovative raw materials.
Nowadays, new suppliers are requested to manufacture and supply textiles. Textiles will broaden the range of raw material used for orthopaedic products introduced to the French market and abroad. The French company proposes manufacturing agreements with textile suppliers from Eastern Europe, Tunisia, Spain and Portugal.
- Type of partner sought: The expected competences from the future partner deal with the manufacturing of high quality textile and/or "smart textiles" and innovative fabric always allowing good thermotaxis, keeping long-time performance benefits like a good compression.

To fulfil this purpose, the company seeks to expand its range of material used to manufacture orthopaedic products such as splints and grips in its premises : the requested materials are elastane, polyester and polyamide.
The potential partners are expected to supply the material with reactivity, good delivery time, high quality, and reasonable prices are requested to fulfil a part of this strategy.
The company's expertise and know-how present the following benefits:
- a well-known brand
