Who we are
We are one of the most active and specialised companies of the world in the manufacturing and trading of ribbons in the activewear and sportswear sectors thanks to the quality of our products and, mostly, because we are always present, solving every problem without giving any concern to the customer. This is what makes the difference in our world.
Indeed, we use materials that we deeply know, promptly solving every problem and we can give you exactly what you need, going beyond the simple customer-supplier relationship.
1982 – Born as a family owned company trading buttons, our market was the Northern part of Italy.
1986 – We start the Research and Development activity of our own products expanding our market to elastic tapes and ribbons.
1998 – Fabio Aceti, the founders' son, takes over the company, adding to the collection woven labels, micro-injections and high frequency for the textile and clothing sector.
2003 – We create a productive division for elastic tapes and ribbons for the sportswear sector.
2008 – We specialise in silicon tapes, internationalising our company to the European market.
2012 – We expand to the USA and to China.
2015 – We start our own production activities in China.
2016 – We become the world point of reference for the activewear sector, especially for cycling. We also move to our brand new commercial offices and production facility, still in Bergamo.
2019 – We renovate the commercial department and the brand. We launch "No Plan(et) B", the eco-friendly project for the textile production.
No Plan(et) B
MARC is close to the environment - not only to its customers’ needs.
Since 2019 we really got to the heart of the “No Plan(et) B” policy, which aims at safeguarding our planet with real actions linked to energy saving and recycling. Indeed, the use of solar energy and of yarns coming from recycled bottles represent a consolidated reality that will increase in the upcoming months.
CO2 saved = 7.445,02 kg (which is like planting 24,88 trees)
There is one bigger project that we want to develop in 2020: enter the Circular Economy. We all know that, at the end of the cutting process, 30% of the fabric is thrown away. It is possible to recycle these scarps meant for landfill, engaging all the actors involved in the production process. In this way, it would be possible to create a Circular Economy that would let us use almost all the raw materials.
