EMTEX was created some 20 years ago in 1993 to assist the regions clothing & textiles businesses to face the challenges of a rapidly changing industry.
Historically the East Midlands was a traditional manufacturing region, with many key manufacturers employing tens of thousands in large garment manufacturing plants, these operations were gradually phased out as they went offshore.
Emtex was the key player helping to transform/develop that threatened business culture to a wider and more diverse sector/industry which now has everything from small CMT units to Avanced Technical Textile companies in the many SME's which continue in business today.
The East Midlands still has the highest concentration of clothing & textile companies in the UK, our connections and operations are by no means exclusive to the area, we get requests from all over the UK and abroad, which we process for the benefit of our members .
Emtex transferred its unique Designer Forum operation to the Confetti Media Group in January 2013, the Designer Forum will now be serving all sectors, not just Fashion and Textiles
