QUOTE FROM THE PRESIDENT
“During the third quarter a number of new products reached stores, including constructed bras and boxer shorts, and the pace of product development remained high. The footwear operations licensed out at the beginning of the year are developing positively, and we feel that focusing the Group’s resources on our main area, underwear, is producing results. As a whole, the third quarter showed that the positive trend earlier in the year is continuing. We were able to report higher sales as well as improved income and favorable margins”, says Arthur Engel.

At the heart of our heritage.
The Puente Romano Tennis Club in Marbella boasts a rich history and a longstanding association with tennis legends. A pivotal figure in the club’s early years was the legendary tennis icon Björn Borg.
Borg’s ties with the Puente Romano Tennis Club strengthened significantly in 1980 when the club served as the venue for his wedding.
Although Björn Borg’s direct involvement in managing the Puente Romano Tennis Club eventually concluded, his enduring legacy laid the groundwork for the club’s esteemed status in the tennis realm.
