Sourcing & Production
Hybrid Apparel sources its products both domestically and offshore.
Domestic Sourcing and Production
The Company’s market niche was founded on a platform of superior product and service, and has mastered domestic production enabling expeditious service, while retaining quality and cost efficiency. It has accomplished this through partnering with domestic compliant mills supporting its core blank needs on a strategic versus transactional platform.
Offshore Development and Sourcing
As the company continued to grow its product assortment; the company recognized the need to source more by finished product, and less by component/raw materials necessitating a reallocation of company resources in support of this initiative.
Hybrid has a development team embedded within its sourcing group that is highly skilled at translating, validating and bridging prototype design to a completed finished commercial product.
Hybrid Apparel offers numerous embellishments and treatments on its products including all screen printing applications, flocking, wash techniques, and embroidery.
