All Sports America, Ltd. Reshores Manufacturing To Point Township, Pennsylvania

04/17/2017
All Sports America, Ltd., a manufacturer of athletic uniforms, will reshore manufacturing of products currently being produced overseas and expand its Storm Uniforms Division at its current facility in Point Township, Northumberland County, Pennsylvania. The company’s expansion will create 42 new jobs during the next three years.

The company will invest more than $900,000 in the project to expand the cut and sew operation of its Storm Uniforms Division, which specializes in youth sports jerseys. Additionally, the company has upgraded its facility and purchased new sewing machines, heat presses, laser cutters, and printers.

“All Sports America is very excited for this opportunity to be bringing jobs back to Pennsylvania,” said Richard Rock, President & CEO, All Sports America.

All Sports America received a funding proposal from the Pennsylvania Department of Community and Economic Development that includes a $40,000 Pennsylvania First Program grant and $42,000 in Job Creation Tax Credits to be distributed upon the creation of the new jobs. The company has also been encouraged to apply for a $400,000 low-interest loan through the Pennsylvania Industrial Development Authority (PIDA).

“Anytime we are able to be involved in helping a company like All Sports America add new jobs and expand operations, it is a positive step for the region, as well as for the state as a whole,” said Governor Tom Wolf. “This is even more meaningful in cases like this, where the project also involves products currently being produced overseas and bringing some of those operations back to America. This is a signal that Pennsylvania is not just competitive with our neighboring states but can also compete in the global economy.”
