Macron, despite its youth, is one of the fastest-growing sportswear brands in Europe. Expansion is engrained in its history -- starting as a distributor of American sporting equipment, Macron has quickly grown to be a major manufacturer for professional and recreational sportswear and provides kit for hundreds of teams across all kinds of play.
