Work N Gear News Release
No one Stands for Quality like Carhartt.
Quincy, MA – Work ‘N Gear is known for bringing their customers quality brands and that’s what they did when they introduced the Carhartt product line in-stores and online. Carhartt, a Dearborn, Michigan based company was founded in 1889 when Hamilton Carhartt introduced his first pair of overalls design specifically for the railroad worker. Today, Carhartt is still run by the family name and has grown to be internationally known for the quality of its workwear apparel.
Few manufacturers prove that their clothes are rugged the way Carhartt does. With their pledge to stand by their products Carhartt has become one of the few workwear manufacturers to take part in field-testing programs. Day after day, men and women across America put their goods to the test. Whether they are tilling farmland, pouring foundations, hauling freight or partaking in the many other countless jobs available they are wearing the product while providing feedback. They let Carhartt know what works and what doesn’t, what stands up to the test of time, and what needs to be changed. Carhartt does all of this to better serve your needs.
Peter Catarella, Work ‘N Gears workwear buyer, fills us in on what he looks for when selecting the Carhartt product to carry in stores. “We look for quality items like the J141, sierra jacket. We want products that are going to work just as hard as our customers do. Knowing that this jacket went through Carhartt’s field testing program, gives me the confidence that it will.” With Carhartt celebrating 125 years in the industry there’s no doubt in Work ‘N Gear’s eCommerce Merchandise Manager, Mary Hamilton’s mind as to why they have staying power. “We’ve talked to many of our customers and they just can’t get enough of Carhartt. I’ve heard everything from, ‘their goods hold up forever’ to ‘if you’re looking for quality, look for Carhartt’. We even received a review from a customer telling us she now buys double of the long sleeve pocket tee for her husband so he can wear them for work and out and about.
It’s clear to see that Carhartt offers quality product that their customers want, and that Work ‘N Gear will be offering it to their customers for years to come. Hamilton Carhartt has been quoted as saying, “I believe that when I make a sale, I make a permanent friend”. Well, Mr. Carhartt it looks like you’ve made a permanent friend in Work ‘N Gear.
Established in 1889, Carhartt is a global premium work wear brand with a rich heritage of developing rugged apparel for workers on and off the job. Headquartered in Dearborn, Mich., with approximately 4,400 employees worldwide, Carhartt is privately owned and managed by the descendants of the company‘s founder, Hamilton Carhartt.
