Our company was founded in 1948 in North Carolina. Today all of our operations and production is still based in North Carolina. We are a privately held company owned by the 3rd generation of the family. This ownership is in the manufacturing facility every day to be hands-on in all aspects of the business; ensuring that we deliver the best product possible. We actively listen to our customers to improve our products with their suggestions.
Like many businesses in today’s economy, we have experienced many changes. Through these challenges and changes, we have never left the USA to have our products made in a foreign country. We believe in order to maintain a high quality product, management must actively participate in the daily plant operations. We want to personally see the product being made and immediately address any issues that arise. We want to talk to our production staff in order to make a better workplace and a better product. In the end, we take pride in being a product made in America by American workers!
We have been in the sock industry for over 60 years and we introduced the Wrightsock brand name and our Double Layer product in 1990. Through thousands of hours of testing we developed two patents and many proprietary techniques to bring the best socks to the market. Our brand has grown from selling to a few specialty stores in the United States, to now being a global brand available at running specialty stores, national chains and in over 10 international countries.
We continue to improve our socks by working with our work force here in North Carolina and our contacts throughout the world. Our commitment is to make the best socks possible to make everyone that buys our product able to enjoy their chosen activities without having any foot issues. We will continue to do all we can in the future to provide the best product possible and to continue our business into the 4th generation.
