DBT Fibre was founded in 2003 as a result of the merger of four companies created in the first half of the last century in four countries with a long historical tradition in the textile sector:
DE MARTINI begins his activity in the 60s in Biella beginning the first production of fancy tops industrially in Italy. In the early Seventies, through the experience gained in processing synthetic fibres, De Martini took up a new challenge and started producing capillary flow-control filters used as reservoirs in writing instruments, in cosmetics and air fresheners markets
ACHILLE BAYART & C., in Roubaix in France, opens its first plant in the 30s maturing so the strongest experience both in production and in the marketing world of tapes for fancy yarns.
TEXTIFIBRA, born in the 60s in Sabadell and consolidated on local and international markets, primarily Spanish-speaking
LEPOUTRE operates as a top maker in Belgium since the 70s and joins Textifibra in the 90s.
The merger of these companies adds more than one hundred years of experience in the sector and concentrates forces in a commercial action aimed at the most widespread presence on the markets. This, combined with a new and very modern industrial plant located in the heart of one of the major European textile districts, allows us to face the challenges of this millennium with maximum international competitiveness.
