Broder Bros., Co. is a leading distributor of
imprintable sportswear and accessories in the United States and operates under
the "Broder", "Alpha" and "NES" brands. By maintaining three distinct catalogs,
websites, sales forces and call centers, we are able to preserve the strong
brand name recognition and customer goodwill that has been generated from
over 175 combined years of independent operations, while our integrated back
office operations provide significant economies of scale. We operate within
the imprintable sportswear and accessories market, which includes undecorated
or “blank” T-shirts, sweatshirts, polo shirts, fleece, outerwear, caps, bags
and other imprintable accessories that are decorated primarily for
advertising and promotional purposes. We provide our decorator customers with
value-added merchandising, marketing and promotional support that helps our
customers grow their businesses. Our decorator customers in turn sell our
products to end-consumers, primarily for advertising and promotional
purposes. We purchase product from more than 70 suppliers, including trade
brand suppliers such as Russell, Fruit of the Loom, Hanes, Anvil and Gildan.
Other exclusive or near-exclusive suppliers include retail brands such as Adidas
Golf and Champion. In addition to purchasing
from these distribution suppliers, we develop and source products from over
14 countries to support our private label brand initiatives, which include Devon
& Jones, HYP, Authentic Pigment, Harvard
Square, Chestnut Hill and Harriton.
We operate the
largest distribution network in the industry, which consists of eight
distribution facilities located throughout the United States. In
addition, we operate ten "Express" facilities offering pickup room
services to customers. We have the ability to ship via ground parcel
service to over 80% of the continental U.S. population within one
business day and to over 98% of the continental U.S. population
within two business days.
