The Lobufil company was founded in 1983 by Vittorio Sangalli and his nephew Carlo Losa both experienced in all aspects of elastomeric yarns. The company has continued to expand, Filelmo was formed in 1987 when Lobufil and Nuova Torcitura di Sagrado merged. The company has a very comprehensive range of single, double covered and specialist air intermingled yarns for most applications. The initial object of the company was to produce the best covered leg yarns for fine gauge ladies hosiery - the most difficult of all critical covered yarns end-uses. The company has subsequently increased its range and now produces yarns for men's socks, circular knitted fabrics, knitwear, medical and weaving applications. The group is ambitious and has consistently invested in new equipment. Today it has some of the most modern and versatile production units in the covering sector. Filelmo is strong in both its domestic market and export, being represented in most world textile markets through Filelmo's head office in Inveruno. The company's philosophy is simply: Quality - Service - Innovation. Included in their quality statement is the requirement to process the best available raw materials on the correct machinery with a fully trained and motivated staff to result in the optimum yarn quality. Flexibility and quick response to changing market conditions is the company's answer to service. The understanding that customer's requirements are different and yarns need to be engineered to individual requirements is important. Innovation, both product and equipment is an area where the company is particularly strong. A team of specialists are always available to assist with new developments.

The company insists on a close working relationship with both their suppliers and customers in order to achieve these objectives.
