Listen to Mitch Cahn, founder and CEO of Unionwear, as he shares how he chose Rootstock on Salesforce to fulfill his vision for the future on a next-generation cloud platform. In addition to implementing control of their raw materials procurement, Unionwear is now able to better predict their production capacity with Rootstock’s capacity planning solution. Rootstock and Salesforce have brought Unionwear the real-time data they need for continuous improvement at the time and place it is needed—not at the end of the day.
Unionwear is the trade name, URL and DBA of New Jersey Headwear Corp., which manufactures and embroiders headwear, bags, accessories, work wear and safety gear. Unionwear currently operates a 45,000 sq. ft. manufacturing facility in Newark. Unionwear sells through a nationwide network of several hundred promotional products distributors. As the premium paid for domestic production shrinks, more and more markets are enforcing labor standards in their procurement, such as colleges, federal, state, and local governments, as well as corporations with strong union workforces – for employee gear, and non-profits.
For the past ten years, Unionwear has focused on providing products to clients requiring products to be made in the USA and is not forced to compete with imports on price. The US military and federal government accounts for half of the business with clients like labor unions and presidential campaigns representing much of the balance.
