Fulgar offers intelligent solutions for the textile industry

The Italian yarn manufacturer Fulgar S.p.A. has over the years become one of the leading manufacturers of polyamides used mainly for the manufacture of knitted fabrics, lingerie, swimwear and sportswear.

With its aspirations for innovation, constant customer focus and high quality, the company can call on decades of know-how in the textile industry. Almost all items produced by the manufacturer meet the most stringent human-ecological demands necessary for certification in product class l (baby articles) for the Oeko-Tex Standard 100.

New capabilities

With around 800 employees, Fulgar can offer a wide range of products. For Alan Garosi, Marketing Manager, the focus is on adjustment of the finished products to suit the needs of the end consumers: “The yarns manufactured by Fulgar are used for all types of textiles: their application ranges from circular knitting for modern jersey textiles to hosiery, corsetry and swimwear, to sportswear.”

“Our decades of know-how in the textile industry have enabled us to create intelligent fibres with new capabilities and to offer a wide, environmentally friendly and sustainable range of products.” Thanks to extensive investments in the area of research and development, Fulgar can now concentrate on the development of new and innovative fibres.

“In addition to our particular customer focus and strength of innovation, our philosophy also includes an extremely high commitment to environmental issues and sustainability,” commented Alan Garosi. “We implement varied projects and initiatives on a daily basis which involve all production processes.”

“Q-NOVA is attractive because of the outstanding characteristics such as being extremely light, extraordinarily comfortable and very good at absorbing moisture. In addition, the material is easy to dye and process,” explained Alan Garosi.

“As a result of the sustainable production process, we can significantly reduce CO2 emissions and water consumption and promote the use of renewable energies. Q-NOVA shows that our commitment to the environment is not solely based on statutory regulations but that it also represents one of the basic principles of the Fulgar company policy.”

Reaching international markets

Fulgar S.p.A. was founded in 1980 in Castel Goffredo (Mantua) as a supplier to local textile companies in the former hosiery district.

As a result of far-sighted company policies and optimum market adjustment, the company gradually won ground in the international textile arena. Since 2000, Fulgar has been reaching new international markets with its own brand, particularly in the Asian and Eastern European regions. Today, the company has subsidiaries in Sri Lanka and Serbia and also maintains a sales office in Turkey.
