Founded by Luigi Grampa, Maglificio Alto Milanese started producing jersey, interlock, pile and rib fabrics mostly in cotton destinated at a growing local clothing and underwear market.
Owning a wide range of knitting machines, Maglificio Alto Milanese has always been capable of satisfying the market demands and its customers’ needs. In the late eighties, the son of Luigi Grampa, Attilio Grampa, took over the family business and began transforming this relatively small business which operated mostly in its local market, into a nationwide established company. This growth was pushed thanks to an increased number of latest model knitting machines and the use of new types of fibers, both conventional and technical. Thus, Maglificio Alto Milanese became a point of reference for a growing market.
The major turnaround took place in the early 90’s, when the company transformed itself from a small-scale family business to a larger scale industrial player in the market. It gained market shares in niche fields and introduced a new product category of technical fabrics, destined to a wider field of customers such as the laminating, coating, sanitary and footwear sectors.
From that moment on, Maglificio Alto Milanese has been driven by the combination of continuous research and product evolution and craftsmanship. This resulted into a healthy, ever-evolving company with a vast product range divided over various business units.
