About us

With only nineteen years old, Gustavo Varela decided to create Nortimaco.

We were in 1985 and it was a decision based on the opportunities that were appearing with the growth of the textile industry in the Ave river valley.

This particular area of Portugal has a secular tradition in the textile industry, and History shows that its development was mostly based on this business.

With more and more factories producing all kind of textile goods, there was the need for reliable suppliers of industrial machinery, parts and technical support with quality.

There are some principles that always oriented Nortimaco since its foundation:

· Constant search for innovation and anticipation of our costumers needs.




· Provide our costumers with the right tools to achieve better productivity and quality.



· Always try that our clients obtain from our equipments and services the right value for money.


These orientation principles permitted our client portfolio to grow through time.

It's, without any sort of doubt, the best testimonial on our services quality.

The loyalty of our clients is living proof of our costumer oriented service, and search for satisfaction and quality.

More recently, in 2005, Nortimaco changed its facilities to a more modern efficient building.

It has better conditions for repairs, better access for clients, with parking spaces and quick access to all main highways, a larger show room with more machines and a spare parts room with more choice.

We at Nortimaco look at the future as an opportunity not as threat.

We face change with the confidence that more than twenty years of experience gives us.

We count on our team of workers effort to achieve a single goal: always meet, and if possible exceed, our costumers’ demands to continue to be worthy of their preference.

We are at your service for any further information you might need.
