Founded in the United States in 1910 under the name of Consolidated Textile Mills, the company first made inroads into Canada in 1929 with the opening of a first plant in Saint-Hyacinthe, Quebec.
In 1979, Consolidated Textile Mills acquired Bruck Mills. The new entity flourished under the name Consolidated Textiles until 1981, the year the company adopted its current name, Consoltex Inc.
A public company since its beginnings, Consoltex moved to private hands in 1991, before going public once again in 1993, to be privatized again in 1999 by American Industrial Partners (AIP).
In 2006 an affiliate of Sun Capital Partners purchased the stock of Consoltex from American Industrial Partners.
In 2008, all the issued and outstanding shares of Consoltex Inc. were acquired by Geosam Investments Limited.
