"By staying focused on ways to continually enhance our branding, technology and processes in order to create the maximum value for our customers and employees, Hat World is proud to be a recognized retail leader of officially licensed and branded athletic fashion headwear," said Hat World, Inc. President Ken Kocher. "It is this same drive that has us excited about the opportunity to continue our expansion in the team apparel industry by relocating production to Indianapolis. We greatly appreciate the commitment of the city of Indianapolis and state of Indiana for their support of our continued growth."
The Indiana Economic Development Corporation extended up to $4 million in tax credits to Hat World, and the city of Indianapolis will consider additional property tax abatements from Develop Indy.
Hat World produces hats under the LIDS brand. It will invest up to $22 million to lease and equip additional space as part of consolidation of its manufacturing and warehouse sites in Wisconsin.
