CEO Sampedro SGPS
How it all began
It was in 1921 that university lecturer Dr. Álvaro Machado, his brother, former militia officer Eduardo Rodrigues Machado, and Luís Eugénio D' Oliveira Braga, a merchant in Porto, decided to go into the textile industry which at that time was booming in the region of Guimarães in Northern Portugal. Their culture of demanding high quality, along with a measure of idealism and romanticism, would permanently create the values and identity of the Sampedro brand.
This legacy still remains deeply rooted in the culture of the company which began its commercial life as a manufacturer of linen fabrics, at that time mostly involved in making sheets and towels. Only later Sampedro did expand its range to products made of cotton, polyester/cotton and terry towelling.
Sampedro was the first company in Portugal to produce checked, striped and printed fabrics. Ever since that time the product, which quickly became a great business and sales success, has brought to the brand, together with other product lines, the recognition it enjoys to this day.
90 years of existence and 3 generations later, Sampedro bedding is still the company's strongest brand image and most iconic product.
Today through the use of the most advanced textile technology, carefully selected raw materials, and supported by a team of creative experts, Sampedro is involved in the entire production process from design and development, weaving preparation, weaving, bleaching, dyeing and printing, to finishing and making up.
Today, Sampedro is a benchmark in textile production at national level, and is recognised as a trusted brand in the international markets it exports to.
Our concern for the environment and the well-being of our customers led to the company receiving the Oeko-Tex Standard 100 international certification, which is an international certification system for raw materials and textile products whose goal is to achieve products that are free from substances harmful to human health.
We have a Cogeneration facility (Sampedro Energia), which provides steam and hot water, producing 4.4 MW/H of energy to the national power grid
