History

NATco (North American Textile Company, LLC) is a US-based company, with corporate headquarters located in Los Angeles California. Established in 1991, NATco’s experience comes from its roots in Argentina, Pentars, a company with over 50 years of experience. Although NATco is based in the U.S., each local office is a building block within this global network. Current production sites are strategically located throughout North, Central, and South America; Asia, Africa, Europe and the Middle East. Some of these sites are fully owned subsidiaries of NATco, while others are partnerships with local affiliates that facilitate doing business within that country.

Our Mission

To play an active prominent role in the brand apparel packaging industry from a local and global perspective, by providing our clients with outstanding customer service, great products and innovative cost saving solutions.

Our Vision

To be the most innovative service oriented company in our industry. Constantly striving for better performance and pushing boundaries to the next level.

Our People

NATco operates an extensive network of personnel dedicated exclusively to customer service. While all project management is centralized in the United States, local offices in each country where NATco operates are tasked with handling all communications with contractors.

For customers in different time zones, it is inefficient to have to deal with US companies; not just because of time differences, but also due to different business and cultural practices. NATco works hard to break down these barriers in order to provide contractors with the same type of service we provide here in the United States. Order follow-up, price and inventory information and help with shipping documentation can all be obtained from our local offices. There is no need to wait 24 hours for the US offices to provide the answers needed.

Ethical and Social Responsibility

NATco is dedicated to protecting workers’ rights around the world. NATco is affiliated with the Fair Labor Association – an organization that encourages companies to voluntarily meet internationally recognized labor standards.

As an affiliate, NATco agrees to subject their supply chain to independent audits.

The key principles are:

Nondiscrimination – No one will be discriminated against in hiring, advancement, discipline, or termination based on gender, ethnicity, or religion.
