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, who had a vast experience in this market due to several years as an employee in several companies who performed related activities.
In the course of 12 years and with only 6 employees, the company managed to reach a business volume of 3.5 million euros in its best year. Due to the changes of the international market that much affected the European textile market, in 2009 the company lost its best client as they decided to redirect their production to Asia. This change forced the company to redefine its strategy which eventually led the company to growth. The company was restructured and expanded the size of the facility, innovated in machinery and equipment and renewed and increased the staff.
TMR, who had been a differentiating company ever since its foundation, stayed the line but geared to a more specific market, which was a more high-end market where quality prevailed over quantity. Since the shift in strategy the company managed to enter new markets through contacts established in international fairs and has now clients in Netherlands, Germany, Switzerland, Sweden, USA, Denmark, Spain, France and Portugal.
TMR is a company that exports 100% of its business, differentiator through the quality of the products that develops and produces, good communication and close relations with the clients which leads them to recommend TMR´s services to others.
In a fast evolving market TMR has to innovate in order to differentiate itself from its competitors and the new challenge is to certificate the quality management system of the company so it can not only keep its actual clients but get new ones as it enters other even more competitive markets. TMR, aware of the importance of implementing more sustainable practices has started the procedure in 2018 in conformity with the NP EN ISSO 9001:2008 in order to obtain the certificate.
Margarida Brief History
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 a 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.
That company, TMR Fashion Clothing, exports 95% of its productions directly to clients all over the world.
