Vapesol: Innovation and SustainabilityThe Portuguese company’s commitment to innovation involves various aspects: the product, technology, corporate image and safeguarding the environment.

Sep 15, 2018

Vapesol has been a specialist sole producer for over 20 years. This long-standing experience has allowed them to become a reference point in the footwear sector, especially when you consider their constant endeavours to innovate and renew themselves, well exemplified by CEO, Décio Pereira:

For us, investing in innovation on all levels, like technology, products, integrated management systems, logistics, advertising, corporate image and marketing, is essential.

Over the years, the company has always been convinced that quality and nice soles are the perfect support for a good shoe and by integrating these elements into the company strategy it is possible to reach new markets and attract new human resources

For this reason, the Portuguese company recently installed new machines with the objective of adopting the most advanced technologies on the market to increase their reactivity and the quality and originality of the products.

A level of innovation that involves every Vapesol brand – made from TPR, TPU and EVA – which stand out for their innovative characteristics.

But Vapesol’s attention to detail doesn’t just stop with the product, it’s also focused on environmental responsibility, a core part of the company’s strategy.

A partnership with one of our suppliers has allowed us to create a 100% biodegradable compost, which means that we have become a leading producer of biodegradable soles for some of the best brands on the market.

Furthermore, Vapesol helps to protect the environment with the adoption of a renewable energy strategy, consisting of solar panels that power the production plant, providing 50% of the company’s daily energy consumption requirements. Another element that will enable the sole manufacturer to obtain environmental certification – one of Vapesol’s next objectives.
