Sidónios Malhas was established on 8th June 1984, based on the spirit of initiative and experience of its founders, Sidónio Ferreira da Silva and his son Sidónio Teixeira da Silva, adopting the legal form of a Firm.
At the time its main activity consisted of buying used machines for repair and consequent sale. While the machines were being tested the company would seize the time to produce knitted fabrics.
In 1986 the company abandoned the machinery buying/selling activity to start dedicating exclusively to the production of knitted fabrics. The company has registered a steady growth since its first day of business, in the volume of business, its facilities and number of employees.
