The history of the Air Slaid group has been weaved by the tradition and dedication of two families. Since the Italian immigration to the region textile manufacturing, the Luchesi and the Grassi families, have been working to create prosperity in the textile sector.
In the 50’s, both factories: Têxtil Santa Eliza and Tecelagem Antônio Grassi, were already well known all over Brazil. In 1968, the traditions of these two families united with the couple Irineu Grassi (in memory) and Esther Luchesi, who, together in 1970 started to produce technical fabrics designated for industrial filtering. In 1996 their children took over the management of Air Slaid, accepting the challenge to innovate with the objective of producing the most precise and well fabricated industrial filtering fabrics in Brazil.
In 2012, Air Slaid bought the Big Telas company, a manufacturer of screens for industries such as sugar & alcohol, paper and cellulose, with an intention of expanding into these markets, thereby forming the Air Slaid Group.
