New technical sponsor signs five year deal.
Among Macron's current crop of clubs are Aston Villa, Crystal Palace and Bolton Wanderers in England, Lazio and Bologna in Italy, Sporting Clube de Portugal in Portugal and Hadjuk Split in Croatia.
Macron Country Manager, Andrea Palilla added: "We are honoured to start this relationship with such a prestigious club as Colchester United.
"Our designers will work closely together with the club to make sure the new kits are technically advanced and stylish and are appreciated by the fans and players.
"I am very excited to welcome Colchester United to the Macron family and I want to thank the club General Manager Tim Waddington for making this agreement possible."
Macron was founded in 1971, initially as an exclusive distributor of baseball equipment.
Since then it has gone from strength to strength and, in 1994, it moved into larger premises in Crespellano in Italy, where there is enough room for all of its activities under one roof, - design, prototyping and distribution for baseball, basketball, volleyball and of course, football.
Macron has worked in football for over 15 years now, and its first contract with a top level professional club was with Bologna FC. Since then, the brand has been seen on the official shirts of some of the best and most renowned teams in the world.
In 2014, they also made a big impression in UK football with the naming rights of Bolton Wanderers' stadium.
Fans can expect to see sight of the new look kits in June, with the first opportunity to buy the new designs likely to be at the club’s Open Day on July 17th.
