The shoe market evolution is influenced by Plinio Fleck Group. When the Vale dos Sinos began its first steps towards developing the shoe industry, in the late 40s, the young Plinio Fleck realized a business opportunity due to the lack of parts and local suppliers with most tools being imported. That was when Plinio Fleck Group was founded and since 1949 has been producing quality, innovative and high-tech components for the shoe industry in its four companies: Flecksteel, Fleckplast, Fleckmetal and Fleckmulti.
During all these years, Plínio Fleck Group has written its history aligned with pioneering and know-how to consolidate as one of the largest shoe components suppliers in the world. Internationally known for their product quality, Plinio Fleck Group produces state of the art and most promising components for shoes and products alike.
