PIEL, S.A. born  in 1976 in Agullent, where he currently continues located. The initial focus of PIEL, SA, was textile manufacturing imitating animal skins. The company quickly identified the need to diversify production and began with the acquisition of other machinery, which over time have increased the production lines of the company and have consolidated the situation the same in domestic and international market in technical textiles.

Given that the company begins with a certain production facilities, the strategy is being developed to diversify our products in order to enter new markets such as automotive or construction. Fundamentally innovating products with different production systems value added. The value of our textiles, are technologies that are available to most, the search for differentiation and therefore the value must come from other product attributes.

PIEL, SA choose to design products with technical guarantees, for this purpose the company has its own laboratories, physics and chemistry, and also works with different technological institutes to certify their products.

In the case of technical textiles, PIEL, SA uses some of the innovative methodologies and tools as ECODESIGN. For example, thermal fusion fiber has been used as a tool ECODESIGN the Life Cycle Assessment, which is an objective and systematic procedure to identify, classify and quantify pollutant loads and environmental impact, material resources and energy associated from conception to disposal.

Given that the aesthetic appearance of the technical products moves to a second term, PIEL, SA has focused on developing products supported by relevant technical analysis. This means that these textiles, implement and improve the technical performance to meet different application requirements and use.

The company created the product SONOPIEL-A starting from the products currently used in the construction market (mineral wool, polyurethane, polystyrene) . The possibilities of developing an alternative material for textile base were studied and discussed. In this project, we employed first innovative tools used in industry in general, as the Life Cycle Analysis, comparing and evaluating alternative environmentally different materials. This project was awarded the 2004 INNOVATION MATEX, who gave the scientific committee of the fair organizer APLIMATEC, held in Valencia with a biannual basis.
