LOWELL, Mich. -- Sports Addix has been making uniforms for ten years. They began with just two employees, but have now expanded to 40.
They may be expanding even further, thanks to an offer from the Michigan High School Athletic Association.
"The MHSAA said, you know, we would love you as a partner and we enjoy working with you," said John Kargbo, Vice President of Sales and Marketing at Sports Addix. "We want to help you grow. What about being our official custom uniform provider across all sports?"
They were already providing the MHSAA with wrestling uniforms, as the official wrestling gear provider. This offer will allow them to make uniforms for athletes in all sports across the entire state.
"Now that we have signed on with this uniform agreement, we really want to embrace being West Michigan's manufacturing and apparel brand," said Kargbo. "And continue to grow and create jobs here."
Out of the 40 employees currently on staff, 30 were hired in the last 18 months. Although Sports Addix is busy already, they say they're ready to start making more uniforms.
