In 1958, Adriano Marques de Magallanes founded PARTENON following a family tradition in the textile industry. Since the very beginning, he realised the potential held by using synthetic materials.
In the 70s, the company focused in developing waterproof and antistatic garments destined to industrial companies e.g., automobile, electric, telephone.
At the beginning of the 80s, Partenon advocated for a new line of business which would determine the future of the company: the design and manufacture of technical clothing for security forces, with highly evolved, waterproof, and fireproof products.
In 1990 we went a step further in specialisation by designing and manufacturing uniforms and garments to police forces and firefighters. The new markets in Germany and the UK required the company to invest in cutting-edge technology and quality control protocols.
Partenon centralises its strategy around public administrations and invests heavily in R&D in order to be more efficient with manufacturing processes and the technicality of the garments.
Partenon opens new facilities in the textile cluster of TEXVIGO, Spain.
Magallanes Renovables S.L. is founded with the aim of generating renewable energy from tidal currents.
As a part of Partenon’s R&D strategy, client management software is launched to offer a comprehensive management of clients’ uniform programs.
Partenon pioneers a points-based online platform in Spain with its exclusive personalised delivery service.
New management systems
Partenon implements new management systems to digitalise company processes, enhancing communication among departments and clients.
