Manuel de Sousa Lopes, S.A.

Trimmings from Portugal

Founded in 1927 by Mr. Manuel de Sousa Lopes, now a shareholding company owned by his descendants, the company was a pioneer in Portugal in the manufacture of buttons, buckles and all kinds of accessories for the clothing and footwear industries, among others, from various raw materials such as polyester, nylon, metal, corozo, etc..
Always at the forefront of new production technologies, while not forgetting the working conditions of its employees, its environmental concerns led to the construction of a wastewater treatment of liquid wastes - one of the first in this geographical area and the first in factories  producing  buttons in Portugal - as well as the collection of solid wastes for treatment.
Attentive to the needs of the market, trying to satisfy increasingly demanding customers with regard to compliance with international standards, the Oeko-tex, currently indispensable tool, further contributed to the consolidation of its status as a supplier of more and more brands of  international prestige,  both at home and abroad.
In addition to the articles of their own manufacture, the company represents several internationally renowned brands such as Prym (press buttons), Avery Dennison (fasteners and printers), Gutos (hooks and bars), while being  the distributor of a wide range of high quality articles such as  pins, scissors, eyelets, interlinings, etc., always updated  to fashion trends, maintaining partnerships with prestigious international companies.
Experience, a unique and precious asset, combined  with a deep knowledge of the market, makes this company  a key to the survival of the textile industry in our country.
