About Us

The origins of Carité – Calçados, Lda, back to 1986, the time when Mr. João Teixeira started operations in individual name to provide services in the area of shoe stitching. Starting with a small permanent staff (4), the work and the quality of service, allowed him to have as clients the most important shoe factories of Felgueiras zone, running sewing services in the customers shoes like Timberland , Kickers, Gabor, etc.

Thus, the company has grown, a gradual but continuous from year to year, reaching values such - particularly regarding the number of jobs - not provide the legal framework had.

Thus, in May 1990 was established Carité , whose managing partner John Reinaldo Cunha Teixeira. Acting until then only as a service provider in the sewing area, in 1994, took another step towards becoming a shoe company with the product itself, starting to produce the complete footwear, although still only on a subcontracting basis.

However, the continued growth of the industry has led to the need to increase the available area, dividing up the facilities of three separate buildings, geographically separated and were res of residential buildings floor, so without any conditions for industry.

In late 1994, created the conditions required for their development, specifically in the area of facilities and the acquisition of basic equipment with the latest technology.

Investing in a high quality product and an aggressive commercial attitude, since 1995 Carité bet on international markets, exporting almost all of its production to a range of clients consisting of large international brands such as Airborne Footwear (Kickers), Pentland, Hisa Christian Pellet and Dansko Inc, acquiring footwear with its own brand.

This attitude allowed him to sustained growth in turnover, which exceeded € 10 million in 2009.

Thus, following a strategy to act in a medium-high market segment with high demands in terms of quality in materials used and meeting delivery deadlines, the company has sought through continuous investment in new production equipment and recruitment technical staff to overcome the main difficulties that arise.
