Delta Apparel opens Texas, New Jersey facilities
Delta Apparel announced on Tuesday the opening of two new facilities - one in the Dallas, Texas area and one in Cranbury, New Jersey - as part of its digital print subsidiary, DTG2Go.
Expected to open late this summer, the facilities will allow the company to strategically integrate DTG2Go’s state-of-the-art digital print and fulfillment platform with Delta Apparel’s blank garment distribution network.
“We are thrilled to expand our nationwide footprint with the opening of integrated facilities in these important Midwest and Northeast markets,” said Deborah Merrill, chief financial officer and president, in a news statement.
“The new locations will enhance both our delivery speed and fulfillment capabilities and further solidify our industry-leading position in the digital print market.”
With these new locations, Delta Apparel expects to offer one-day shipping to over half of all U.S. consumers, including those in the key New York City and Dallas metropolitan areas, and to be able to support the substantial growth anticipated in 2020.
“We’ve seen success with our integrated facility in the Miami, Florida area and these new facilities will allow us to further leverage our Activewear business’s low-cost supply of blank garments with DTG2Go’s innovative digital print offerings,” Merrill added.
“This single-source solution for customers is unique in the market and allows us to take advantage of expansion opportunities across multiple sales channels outside of DTG2Go's traditional customer base, including brick and mortar retailers, traditional screen printers, promotional product providers, large brands and others.”
The fast-growing digital print business has been a bright spot for the Greenville, South Carolina-based company, with sales growth of 177 percent, announced in its second quarter.
It currently operates a nationwide print and fulfillment network in Miami and Clearwater, Florida; Reno, Nevada; Storm Lake, Iowa; and Fayetteville, North Carolina. DTG2Go also ships internationally to over 100 countries worldwide.
