Besides the four medals that the Portuguese athletes won at the Tokyo Olympics, there is also another Portuguese champion who got up to the podium close to a hundred times. P&R Têxteis has equipped champions from several countries and modalities, mainly through Adidas, and athletes from the United Kingdom, Hungary, Greece and Ethiopia. Altogether, around a hundred medals were won with the help of the quality, innovation and ability of P&R’s textiles, which is already working on new products for Paris 2024.

A specialist in technical sportswear and focused on high competition, P&R Têxteis ended up equipping athletes from different countries and modalities, as a result of the company’s connection with Adidas, but also through agreements made with other brands, and with athletic federations from several countries, in sports such as swimming, rowing, canoeing, cycling or triathlon.

Being on the Olympic podium is “the result of continuous work inside and outside our company’s walls, based on partnerships with customers, with other companies, and with scientific entities. We also bet strongly on innovation and on the development of personalized solutions, adapted to each athlete”, explained the company’s founder, Nuno Pinto.

An example is the suit with a built-in sensor for cyclists, called Sensor Built-In Suit, which allows athletes and coaches to retain bio information, and thus optimize training and performance. A product developed in partnership with CITEVE and the University of Porto within the scope of the TexBoost project. The suit is ready to start industrial production.

Among the high-competition trophies, P&R is also proud to be the Tour de France yellow jersey manufacturer for several years now, and to have also aided the mythical sprinter Usain Bolt win the Olympic gold in the Beijing Games (2008), with the help of an innovative jersey.

Getting closer to its 40th birthday, in 2020 the company grew 20%, and made 16 million euros in turnover. The target for this year is to reach 20 million euros.
