A Green Bay company that started out in a 10 by 10-foot garage, just earned the right to call Carhartt, one of the world’s largest work-wear retailers, their client.
“We will provide logistics, distribution and technology services to help our partner, Carhartt, bring its brand to the world from right here in Green Bay, Wisconsin,” said Kate Burgess, CEO and owner of Elevate97.
Carhartt, a long-time leader in work wear, is located in Dearborn, Michigan. The company produces durable gear to outfit and protect workforces in the U.S. and around the world.
Carhartt will rely on Elevate97’s ability to provide technology and logistical solutions to distribute their marketing assets.
“Carhartt will take advantage of our proprietary software called ShopDev,” said Elevate97 president Dave Coe. “ShopDev helps Carhartt more effectively manage co-op funds and make information based decisions related to promotions in stores and advertising world-wide.”
Elevate 97, (formerly Fulfillnet, Inc.), occupies 190,000 square feet of warehousing space in Green Bay, Wisconsin. With roots in fulfillment, warehousing and direct mail, Elevate97 also provides large-format printing, environmental graphics and technology solutions—primarily for the retail industry.
“We produce marketing materials of all shapes and sizes. Think little boxes to large storefront environments,” said Burgess. “Now, with Carhartt, we further extend our technology, distribution, and logistics services to help a retail work-wear giant promote its brand in stores around the world.”
“What better alignment can there be than a hard-working Green Bay team to help tout the value of Carhartt’s durable work-wear?” added Burgess.
Recently, New Era, an international athletic and lifestyle company best known for being the official on-field cap provider for Major League Baseball and the National Football League, signed on as a client. Carhartt and New ERA join other retail greats like Calvin Klein, Tommy Hilfiger, Nautica, Pandora Jewelry, TaylorMade-adidas Golf and the Green Bay Packers as Elevate97 clients.
