THE SYNERGY OF SUBSIDIARIES AT THE HEART OF DEVELOPMENT
DIATEX quickly engaged in partnerships with its suppliers by forging close bonds with those who have become, over time, subcontractors or even wholly-owned subsidiaries, such as its weaving factory, or textile finishing, with whom the collaboration has made it possible to integrate and control all the links of the textile chain.
Upon customers’ request, DIATEX drafts, with its partners, sets of specifications to define and optimize the technical characteristics of the products. DIATEX also has a garment workshop to meet a very strong demand from its customers by offering custom solutions.
DIATEX can rely on several major partners’ active collaboration, both in terms of its technological activities and its industrial developments. Our strong relationships enable us to offer our customers a better listening experience and a successful product offering, and provide us with a unique vision of future directions and new trends in products and technologies. DIATEX’s 4 subsidiaries are naturally among our privileged partners:
- Tissage des Mûres: weaving unit, 100% acquired in 2015 by DIATEX
- Teinture de St Jean: unit specializing in textile finishing
- Aeroform Composites: a company specializing in hot resources for composites processing
- CIPODEC: a company specializing in tissue cutting, which joined the TDM site in early 2017.
The technological cluster that DIATEX maintains is undoubtedly the source of new developments and DIATEX patents.
We also count among our partners the companies we represent in France. They contribute to our development by providing a complementary range essential and consistent with our production.
