WORLD EMBLEM CANADA MOVE

As a result of recent growth, World Emblem has relocated their Canadian facility to a new, larger manufacturing plant.

The new office space is approximately 10,000 square feet, which makes it twice the size of their previous location. This location will be producing embroidered patches, sublimated patches and direct embroidery with 46 embroidered heads and two shifts to accommodate the increase in demand from clients.

“Moving to a new and independent building will significantly position World Emblem far better than the competition by giving us the flexibility to reduce customer freight costs and improve turn times by eliminating custom duties” noted Jim Kozel, Vice President of Operations.
