Under Armour launches first 'Made in USA' collection
Under Armour is breathing life into US production. The Baltimore-based sportswear company launched a new collection, Arris Project, that was manufactured entirely in the US.
Arris Project is comprised of only two styles—leggings and bras—that were manufactured at the UA Lighthouse in Baltimore that opened in June. The 35,000-square-foot facility serves as a hub for new product and process technology including 3D Design, Body Scanning, 3D Printing and Rapid Prototyping among others.
Fortune quoted Under Armour CEO Kevin Plank during his CES keynote presentation, "We call [it] local-for-local manufacturing, because if we are going to do that we should bring jobs back—not just to America—but tightening our supply chains around the world."
The company on Tuesday reported “lower-than-expected quarterly profit and sales” according to Reuters. Revenue increased 11% and net sales jumped 5.9%, but both numbers were below analysts expectations. Net income fell slightly to $104.9 million from $105.6 million.
The Arris Project bra and leggings are available now on the Under Armour website. Prices range from $50 to $120.
