Plinio Fleck Group
The Plinio Fleck Group is considered one of the historic partners to the international footwear manufacturing industry. Flecksteel, of the Plinio Fleck Group, is among the leading manufacturers of toe-caps and components for safety shoes on the Brazilian and international panorama.
This Brazilian company, in fact, took its first steps in 1949, in order to fill in the gaps present in the industry during the 1940’s in Brazil, when most of the components for footwear were imported due to a lack of local suppliers. Thus, the Group laid down the groundwork for its development, helping write the history of the Made in Brazil footwear manufacturing industry. Moreover, it positioned itself on the international panorama with a tenacity and far-sightedness, which was further backed by the high quality and innovative content of its products.
Today, the Plinio Fleck Group is internationally known and established in the segment of components and technology for footwear through its four brands.
