Marel was originally a sock factory making socks for importers and big brands. In recent years there has also been a great demand for small custom socks. For this reason, we opened a production line for flexible socks in 2002. With more than 18 years of operation, We have MOQ 500 pairs, and it will be adjusted if order quantity below MOQ. Thanks to our procedural lean management throughout the custom sock workflow, many small businesses have been able to start with much less investment. Although the profit is small compared to our original sock OEM business, we pride ourselves on it.
Below is a brief introduction to our one-stop sock manufacturing service. In a word, we accept both large orders (for sock importers or distributors) and small orders (for small businesses / independent brands).
