Matador knows all the best Romanian factories & have built up an excellent reputation & working relationship with them over many years. We place significant volumes with these factories from our various Clients, and, consequently, this enables us to secure preferential prices on your behalf, with absolutely no compromise in quality. We also can get additional facilities/service, eg credit & priority treatment from these factories because our reputation is second to none. Over the years there are very few, if any, items destined for the military or corporate clothing market that we have not manufactured.

Indeed, Matador has produced a significant percentage of the items purchased by the UK’s MOD over the past two decades. We have also produced a considerable volume of body armor for several of the UK’s biggest players in this field. We are able to produce the soft armoured packs as well as outer covers, if required. Matador has also produced a large amount of corporate clothing for some of Europe’s largest companies including knitwear & tailored suits. Visit our Bucharest HQ and we will be able to show you several thousand samples of a diverse range of items that we have produced over the years.


Matador has it’s own well organised warehouse in Bucharest with an excellent stock management system.

We use this warehouse as a centralised distribution centre for large contracts where we need to source production from more than one capacity.

Quality control

Matador have a large & extremely experienced team of fully qualified textile engineers that spend their time in the factories supervising every aspect of production from start to finish.

We are fully responsible for ensuring our clients never have a quality problem and our QC engineers will communicate with you easily in your own language.


Matador can arrange for markers to be produced locally. Generally our clients deliver all raw materials & we ensure that the fabrics are cut efficiently so as to ensure no waste. We also scrutinize the production factories consumption of all accessories to ensure that our client’s valuable materials are not wasted.

Matador will make sure that all surplus materials, markers, patterns etc are returned at the end of the contract.


Matador can report data in any way you like but at the very minimum our weekly production report will show you exactly what is on-line & what is completed as finished goods in the warehouse.

We have “early warning systems” to rapidly identify if any output is not on schedule so we can take action to resolve this fast.


Matador takes very seriously, the confidential nature of our client’s production. Many of our clients compete against each other for the same tenders and we never discuss one client’s business with another for obvious reasons. This is also why you will find general pictures on this web site, which are not linked to any of our clients specifically.


Matador has an experienced team that knows exactly what the best transport companies are to use & how to keep the costs to a minimum of moving raw materials to Romania, and finished goods back to you.

The Long-term

We are only interested in creating partnerships that work for the long-term. Matador is proud of the fact that today we still retain many of the clients that we secured in the first years of operation, from all those years ago. We look after them with complete dedication and we have established a reputation for the highest integrity.
