WARWICK, R.I. – July 24, 2020 – SquadLocker, a leading provider of online tools and services for teams and organizations to manage custom apparel and equipment purchasing, was honored with PBN’s 2020 Manufacturing Award for Emerging Manufacturer. The seventh annual Manufacturing Awards virtual ceremony that took place on June 30, 2020 recognized 15 organizations in multiple categories for excellence in Providence’s local manufacturing industry.

“Our thanks to PBN for recognizing SquadLocker and our proprietary manufacturing process, which remains unmatched in the custom apparel sector,” said Gary Goldberg, CEO of SquadLocker. “My wife, Elizabeth and I have watched with amazement the impact coaches and mentors have had on our own children’s lives in Rhode Island. We want every coach, youth league administrator, and school decision maker to be able to make a greater impact on their community across the country. Our manufacturing investments in the state enable these key community leaders to have more time to focus on kids by lessening the burden and complexity around designing, purchasing, and distributing customized gear and apparel.”

Based in Warwick, RI, SquadLocker is housed in a wholly-owned 50,000 square foot state of the art manufacturing facility where all the logistics and decoration for producing custom team uniforms and player gear are managed. The company has optimized processes for mass customization at scale, digital printing and direct to garment printing, direct online orders, and daily product scheduling including rush orders. The company’s quality control guidelines meet 99.4% accuracy.

SquadLocker’s manufacturing process combined with a team of software engineers has allowed the company to lessen the burden for teams, coaches, league administrators, and parents across the country to easily acquire customer gear and apparel.
