My father started SanMar in 1971 when he saw a need to deliver quality t-shirts. His personal mantra was to always tell the truth and be nice, something that continues to shape our company today. I quite literally grew up in the business and saw us evolve from a t-shirt company to the country’s largest supplier of imprintable apparel.
We’ve grown a lot over the past four decades, and today we’re proud to employ more than 4,000 people in the United States at our eight distribution centers and home office. Manufacturing our products has also created steady, meaningful work for thousands of people around the world. We take our responsibility to employees and sourcing partners seriously and strive to make a difference in each of the communities where our products are sourced, sold and shipped.
Our products have the power to build connections, unite teams and communities, spark brand awareness and inspire. We know the people who buy our products trust us to provide apparel and accessories that are ethically, responsibly and sustainably sourced. We’re proud of the progress we’ve made and are focused on improving transparency and assessing the environmental impact of our products.
When we first began outlining our approach to corporate responsibility, we realized that much of what it means to be a responsible business is already woven into our SanMar Family Values. Today we are more passionate than ever about living our values by supporting our communities, delivering sustainable products and taking action to reduce our environmental impact. We are still charting our corporate responsibility efforts and know there is much work ahead. We are committed to continuing to make thoughtful choices and a positive impact.
In our 2017 Corporate Responsibility Report we share our successes and challenges and take a look at where we want to grow and how we want to improve in the coming years. It’s important to us to continue to learn how to be a better company and how to be a better corporate citizen in this global economy.
I’m proud of our family roots and the family-focused company SanMar remains today. I take great pride in working alongside my father, my brother and all SanMar employees to build a company that our children and our children’s children will be proud of.
Thank you for joining us on this journey. I’d love to hear your thoughts on our corporate responsibility efforts and what’s important to you. We’re all in this together and one step at a time, we’ll get there.
Jeremy Lott, Owner and President, SanMar Corporation
