Way more than a factory
TMR was founded in 1998 as a textile company specialized in the production of clothing. The company was created by CEO & Founder, Margarida Máximo. Born in the north of Portugal, home to one of the strongest textile clusters worldwide, Margarida has been somehow involved in this industry since her early teens. Adventurous and global minded she moved to London at a very young age in search of new challenges and like minded people.
A couple years after she returns to Portugal with a finely tuned English and starts working for an English company located in Portugal as sampling department manager. Always eager to learn she took as many courses as she could until the opportunity rose to start her own business as a textile agent with a small factory. As the years went by, the business, fueled by a strong textile momentum in the area, gained traction and grew exponentially. Having survived the industry and global crisis of the late 2000's she remains the CEO of the vary same company she founded 20 years ago.
TMR exports 100% of its business and produces for a small list of brands, choosing to be particular and focused and differentiator rather than broad and generalized. Since the top priorities in her business relations are transparency and honesty, Margarida Maximo likes to stress the important role trust plays in the relationships between her factory and the clients. TMR experienced team is always on the lookout for new types fabrics and products, keeping it self-fresh with researches and follow up the fashion industry. This keeps the factory one step ahead of other textile manufacturers.
It’s not about simply making a product; it’s also about the finish and the care taken during the many manufacturing processes that makes a product distinct and above the ordinary.
