With entrepreneurial vision and determination, Hamilton and the next three generations of the Carhartt family established a brand that has stood the test of time.
Carhartt has global operations in the U.S., Mexico, and Europe. The company employs more than 2,200 American workers, 900 of whom are UFCW union members. Carhartt’s “Made in the USA” line is inspired by American workers and features some of the company’s most iconic garments. These products are made in four facilities located in Kentucky and Tennessee.
Over the past 15 years, Carhartt has produced more than 80 million garments and accessories in the U.S. The company also sources heavily from U.S. suppliers such as Mt. Vernon Mills in Georgia (fabric) and YKK Snap USA in Kentucky (snaps and buttons), among others.
Carhartt also owns and operates manufacturing and finishing facilities in Mexico, and its European headquarters is located in Amsterdam. In all, Carhartt employs more than 5,000 hardworking associates worldwide.
Carhartt. Outworking them all since 1889.
I believe that when a man wears an article that I manufacture, his self-respect is increased because he knows that it is made by an honest manufacturer, who is honest with his employees.
