In April 2013 we began production at 99 Degrees Custom- a new social enterprise apparel manufacturing plant based in Lawrence, MA. In the next few months, a majority of new orders on our website will be made in Lawrence at 99 Degrees, which helps kickstart their business, and gives them some security during the start-up phase.
Precision Sportswear is a lean manufacturing company in Fall River, Massachusetts. During the industrial revolution, 15 new corporations and 22 new mills were built in Fall River, with over a million spindles, and 1/6 of all cotton production was done in this Massachusetts city that by 1920 grew to a population of a 120,000. But over the course of the 20th Century, the manufacturing jobs dwindled, while companies chased cheap labor and lax regulation. Precision is an amazing example of a company finding a way to work through the challenges of American manufacturing and it is an honor to be working with them.
