Fisipe S.A. is a manufacturer of acrylic fibers with production facilities in Lavradio, Portugal. Formed in 1973, Fisipe has 40 years of experience in this area. Since its formation, it has developed from a manufacturer of standard textile fibers into a provider of specialist acrylic fibers. The company also produces pre-colored and functional fibers for technical applications.
In 2012, SGL Group - one of the worldwide leading manufacturers of carbon-based products - acquired Fisipe. The German group selected the Portuguese acrylic fibers company as its European production base for Precursor, the raw material used in carbon fiber manufacturing. In parallel, the existing production and marketing of acrylic fibers for the global market of acrylic fiber specialities is continued. Fisipe produces a variety of different acrylic fiber specialities for technical and textile applications.
