Versão Portuguesa


MIB started its activities in 1993. Its main purpose was to supply the embroiders market.

The company origins are linked to the vision of the enterpriser and its founder Luis Abreu. His long experience in this sector made him be aware of the lack of offers in a recent market such as Portugal. There was a strong demand of machines, but a poor answer to it.

MIB proposed some new offers:

  • Commerce and distribution of embroidery machines and consumables for the embroidery industry;
  • Software for embroidery industry;
  • Fast, efficient and personalized assistance.

MIB was the first company in this business area dedicated exclusively to the commerce of 1 to 30 heads embroidery machines, software and consumables for embroidery industry.
