In the midst of a pandemic crisis, Inarbel has invested more than 400 thousand euros to assemble a new production line, directed towards protective equipment, whose star is a machine on wheels that manufactures the Skylab products. The company’s medical brand already exports to Spain, France and Italy, and wants to conquer all Europe.
“It is a machine on wheels that we can adjust according to our needs. Works the entire line: has suction, exact cut, profitability management and waste supervision ”, explains Inarbel CEO, José Armindo Ferraz (in the photo) about Lectra’s Vector Fashion iQ50, the technological marvel that the company has inside its doors.
“This May was the month that Inarbel earned the most since it exists. We had to focus on the solution since the problem already existed”. A response that allowed to turn the crisis into an opportunity – the company never stopped producing and didn’t lay-off any employees – and quickly became a bet for the future.
After supplying multiple health facilities in Spain, it came the time to stock hospitals and clinics in Portugal, France and Italy, but the goal is to expand to the entire European market.
“We are developing new products, such as gowns with polyurethane coating and in polyester, which do not shrink, and that last for up to 60 washes. We also have sterilized products, and some made with carbon filaments, which prevents static electricity from forming”, reveals José Armindo Ferraz.
