We serve customers in a broad array of markets; each having their own seasonal demands. To meet the varying needs of our customers, we have established a robust and diverse supply chain incorporating everything from our raw materials providers to our shipping floor. This allows us to meet all of our customers’ peak demands year-round.
Our Sourcing and Product Development departments work together with existing partners to produce innovative and fresh designs. In-house designers collaborate with designers in Asia, giving us the ability to stay on the pulse of current trends. Sourcing staff in the U.S., Hong Kong, and China enables us to react to market changes efficiently. Sourcing also works diligently to identify new supplier partners who adhere to our Code of Conduct.
Our Procurement Team plans production with suppliers who manufacture in facilities located throughout Bangladesh, China, Vietnam and Sri Lanka. We seek to develop long-term relationships with our suppliers; some of our partnerships have continued for 40 years.
Our Supply Chain Division conducts quality checks both at the factory level and as orders are received into our distribution centers. We work closely with our freight providers to ensure our products arrive safely and efficiently. We are certified with the Customs Trade Partnership Against Terrorism (C-TPAT), to maintain safety and security during transportation.
With 3 distribution centers (DC) across the United States, our customers can usually receive stock within 3 days. Our DC locations can support all common carriers, less-than-truck-load (LTL), and full-truck capabilities.
