Paramount Apparel International Expands Domestic Manufacturing Capabilities
Headwear and apparel leader, Paramount Apparel International a division of PAi INC, has recently leased a space in Ellington, MO to expand their domestic production capabilities. The 13,000 square foot space will be used to manufacture headwear.
Fifteen years ago Ellington housed one of Paramount’s many factories located in southern Missouri when the company had strictly domestic manufacturing. Currently Paramount’s only domestic factory is located in Winona, MO. Adding a second domestic embroidery facility will increase production for Paramount’s markets and channels of distribution.
“Returning to Ellington has been an important decision in making sure we have further production within the United States. We are happy to create new job opportunities for the people of Missouri. Reinventing a piece of Paramount’s past has been crucial for the future of our manufacturing” – Grant Clark, Director of Paramount Apparel International: Promotional Products Division
“We’ve been working with Ellington’s community leaders who have kindly welcomed us back” – Kelly Long, Director of Human Resources
The Ellington facility will grow over the next several months, as many as 60 employees are expected to be hired by the end of 2013.
