Cap America Acquires Wear-A-Knit


Expanding its reach into new technologies and markets while increasing its domestic production capacity, Cap America this month acquired Minnesota-based custom knitwear company Wear-A-Knit. The terms of the acquisition were not disclosed.  

Wear-A-Knit produces Made in USA knitwear in Cloquet, MN, for the promotional products and sporting goods industries. Founded in 1977, the company has had two major expansions, the most recent of which being the company’s purchase of Stitch-It Designs of Esko, MN. 

“We take great pride in the quality of the items that we produce and the services we offer and I feel confident that Cap America will continue that standard of excellence moving forward,” says Dave Leslie, president and owner of Wear-A-Knit.

Cap America CEO Mark Gammon adds: “We are excited to expand our company reach and believe this purchase will allow us to better serve both Cap America and Wear-A-Knit clients by increasing our production capacity. We will continue to develop our USA-made knit department, bringing even more products and styles to our customer base.” 

Cap America currently serves the promotional products, sporting goods and retail industries by providing headwear and knitwear with quick turn times and competitive prices.
