Charles River Apparel Increases Workforce by More Than 40 Percent
Charles River Apparel, a leading manufacturer of activewear, announced that the company has increased staff at its Sharon, Massachusetts-based headquarters by more than 40 percent in recent months, with the addition of 20 new employees in virtually every department, including sales, production, embroidery, IT and customer service. One of the reasons for Charles River Apparel’s recent expansion is an increase in corporate orders. The company also plans to continue hiring in the months ahead.
Despite the tough economy, the company recently relocated its operations to Sharon, Massachusetts to accommodate its growing staff—and to allow for further growth. Its new headquarters is more than double the size of its previous facility, offering two football fields’ worth of warehouse space.
“We are very fortunate to be experiencing growth in our business, and are proud to bring jobs back to our community,” said Barry Lipsett, president of Charles River Apparel. “We take tremendous pride in our company and are pleased to welcome these new additions to the Charles River Apparel family, and look forward to adding even more people in the months ahead.”
The family-owned business is also committed to supporting the community it works in, and is nationally recognized for its philanthropic work on behalf of cancer research. Charles River Apparel’s “Be Pink Proud” line of activewear clothing was designed to support breast cancer research, with a portion of sales from the line donated to the Dana-Farber Cancer Institute and several other non-profit cancer research and support organizations. Charles River Apparel also donates thousands of jackets and pants each year to support charitable organizations, schools and athletic teams nationwide. Over the past 25 years, the company has received many regional awards and recognition of efforts in support of a variety of nonprofit organizations.
