In 1937 in a modest basement premises at his grandmother’s property in Herning, entrepreneur Martin Pedersen began his career as a textile producer. The factory has a single knitting machine and Martin’s father is sceptical. As a farmer he believes his three children’s future lies in farming and he’s certainly not impressed by this industrial adventure, which he describes as a “doubtful affair”.
MP now has 65 employees in production in Latvia and 15 working with design, development and sales in Denmark. 75 fully automatic knitting machines produce 6500 pairs of socks/tights every day. 76 % of production is exported. The company’s direction is clear. mp will ensure “Healthy happy feet” for kids and their mums.
