Hit Promotional Products Opens New Apparel Facility

Top 40 supplier Hit Promotional Products (asi/61125) has opened an apparel production facility in Bellmawr, NJ, just south of Philadelphia. This new shipping point now offers 1-Day UPS Ground Transit Service to eight states, thereby increasing Hit’s one- to two-day ground transit time to more than 30 states.

The facility is headed up by New Jersey Production Manager Megan Haines, founder of decorator Middletown Ink. “Megan comes to Hit with over 20 years of production management experience,” said Vice President Marc Held in a statement. “Megan’s extensive knowledge of screen printing and maximizing efficiency will ensure the continued growth of the apparel division.”

The new location, measuring 40,000 square feet, will increase Hit’s decorated-apparel production capacity by 30,000 units daily. Held told Counselor that the 10 employees based there are currently focusing on screen printing, though the supplier has plans to add more decoration capabilities in 2017.

Hit Promotional Products ranks fifth on Counselor’s list of top 40 suppliers, with $319.2 million in estimated revenue for 2015. President C.J. Schmidt was recently named first on Counselor’s Power 50 list for 2016.
