In 1977, a former professional cyclist Frans Verbeeck founded Vermarc Sport in Rotselaar, Belgium.

Along with his wife Angèle, the cycle clothing was made using wool along with flock lettering. But Frans was keen to look at new technology which led him to Italy and the technique of sublimation onto polyester. working in partnership with the University of Leuven, Frans refined the production process and after four months of hard work he started making jerseys in this way.

Vermarc have sponsored a huge number of professional team over the years with the Etixx-Quickstep team their biggest presence in the 2016 peloton.

The company name Vermarc comes from Verbeeck's son "Verbeeck Marc" who is now head of his father's company.
