The roots of the Fibertex company go back as far as the nineteen-twenties when Emile Legon started his flax and cotton bleaching and dyeing business in Kortrijk. In the mid-seventies the actual Fibertex company was founded, now combining both weaving and finishing activities.
Continuous growth and subsequent investments led to the need for larger production facilities. The actual plant and headquarters on the grounds of the Kortrijk/Wevelgem airport date from 1992 and present the state-of-the-art in weaving, printing and finishing of textile niche products such as upholstery, curtains and textile wall coverings.
The common thread through the entire company history: the Legon family. Today’s ownership and management of the Fibertex company is in the hands of already the 4th Legon generation. This family approach stands for a daily and far-reaching involvement of the management, for real customer intimacy and for short communication lines.
