We are Sportstex

Tradition and Innovation in Sportswear

Company history

South Tyrolean Family Business with Global Presence.

Founded in 1987 by brothers Heinrich and Christoph Widmann, along with their brother-in-law Peter Stadler, Sportstex has evolved from a small importer of cotton tote bags into an international player in the textile industry. Since 2015 also the next generation contributes to the company's success.

Production and development

From Promotional Items to Specialty Apparel

In its early years, Sportstex focused on importing cotton tote bags from China, which were then printed in Bolzano. With the opening of the first sewing factory in Timişoara, Romania, in 1993, the company began manufacturing textile promotional items and later, underwear for international corporations. Our expertise in cycling apparel grew steadily, and today, we are one of the leading producers of customized sportswear for various sports.

Product range

Much More Than Just Cycling Apparel

Apart from cycling apparel, Sportstex also manufactures custom clothing for running, winter sports, triathlon, and team sports like football, basketball, and handball. In 2018, we expanded our product range to include athleisure and fitness items for luxury brands, significantly enhancing our offerings.

International footprint

From the South Tyrolean headquarters into the world

Sportstex boasts a team of over 1,200 employees and operates seven manufacturing sites in Romania, along with a sales branch in the USA, enabling the distribution of its high-quality products to over fifty countries around the world.

Corporate philosophy

Passion for Sports Meets Quality and Service

The heart of Sportstex is its people. Family members and employees share a passion for sports. This passion is reflected in the high quality of the products. The pursuit of excellent service and close customer contact is the key to long-standing, trustworthy partnerships.
