Our History

Founded in 1980 by Antonio Ferreira this company is currently a manifest reference in the footwear industry, either nationally or internationally.

The company starts its business with a team of seven employees, today employing 160 workers as a result of its gradual and sustained growth.

The first orders – sports footwear models and moccasins – are intended exclusively for the home market. In 1984, just four years after starting labouring, Arlitó bets on an export strategy with the first businesses on the French market.

The partnership with the brand Kickers, from Pentland Group in 1994, determines the entry in the English market, being Arlitó responsible for producing over 90% of the brand development in Portugal.

The export strategy proceeds in the North American market, where the company conveys, between 2000 and 2005, the daily production of thousand pairs of Water Proof models to Rockport.

Also relevant in this decade is the beginning of the manufacturing of Camel Active – Gabor models which, since 2005 until the present day, represent a production of 150 thousand pairs per year.

Arlitó, from 2008 on, sets out to gain the luxury segment, establishing partnership with brands like Kenzo, Costume National and Pal Zileri.

This commitment and the luxury brands that comprise the portfolio of Arlitó are a clear evidence of the excellence of its know-how in production and its ability to respond to all types of shoe manufacturing. Recognized for its flexibility in introducing new developments at short notice, Arlitó is a reference of quality and innovation in the industry.
