HAUPPAUGE, N.Y.—Apparel manufacturer and distributor Royal Apparel announces significant growth and plans for expansion. The Long Island-based company has experienced 30 percent growth per year since 2013 and is projected to triple volume in the coming year.
“Technically, in the last two years we’ve doubled our business,” notes Glen Brumer, sales director for Royal Apparel, adding that the company is expanding the current 25,000 sq. ft. production space with an additional 30,000 sq. ft.
Noting that the company has quietly added production lines since 2015 as a precursor to physical expansion, Brumer cites multiple factors for significant growth at the company. The 2016 election season, he explains, has had a major impact. A diverse mix of styles for men, women, and children all comprise the election-related swag, and the demand covers all parties and candidates. The classic promotional T-shirt and sweatshirt have been popular items for candidate-conscious companies, notes Brumer, as well as baby onesies with candidate logos and slogans. In addition to election season apparel, the company experienced increased demand from segments like the music industry, environmental organizations, and food and beverage industries.
Brumer also notes the “Made in USA” component of Royal Apparel’s branding as a major contributor to sales growth. Production and manufacturing of the raw materials for Royal Apparel takes place within the United States, specifically in New Jersey, Pennsylvania, and Tennessee.
“We have our own knitting facilities where we make our own fabrics and a dye facility where we dye the colors,” explains Brumer, adding that Royal also operates domestic cut -and-sew operations.
In addition to a positive response from clients, Brumer notes that the uptick in business is palpable around the office.
“The morale has just been unbelievable,” Brumer comments. “It’s exciting to be part of a growing company.”
