Lemar and current times

Armindo Araújo, rally driver – with five absolute national titles and two world titles – and administrator of Lemar, gives face to a trend in the textile and clothing industry to (well) mix sport with business, as was also seen during the last edition of ISPO Munich, where companies such as A. Sampaio, Carvema and Impetus showed strong arguments to come out winners in this championship.

All this at a time when we were far from imagining the impact that Covid-19 would have on companies, businesses and our lives in general, closing stores and putting consumers in a crisis of confidence and economic that will last for months or even years to come.

The March issue of Jornal Têxtil is, therefore, a portrait of the zero moment in this new universe still relatively unknown, in which companies had growth plans that included strengthening their presence abroad, such as Longjump and Skulk, expanding products and valences, such as Solinhas and Rifer, new investments, such as B. Sousa Dias, or changing their image, such as Tearfil. It is also an edition that shows the results of the latest editions of international fairs such as Première Vision Paris, Texworld Paris, Momad, Micam or CPM Moscow, with exhibitors and buyers crossing aisles and placing orders.

Special situations call for special measures, so in addition to the paper edition, which is on its way to readers with a subscription, the March Jornal Têxtil is also available online here.
