Sport Science operating in new, larger, eco-friendly production facility
Online PR News – 04-June-2013 – Fairfax, VA – Sport Science, in partnership with Sundog Productions, LLC, is now operating in a new 40,000 sq ft. facility. Unveiled at a grand opening held on Saturday, June 1, 2013, this facility is one of the few clothing manufacturers in the world using green energy to power its production, which includes a solar heated water system, saving on energy and further reducing the Sport Science carbon footprint. Attendees, including Fairfax City Mayor Scott Silverthorne, toured the reconstructed building packed with sewing machines, screen printing, dyeing, sublimation printing and embroidery equipment.
In 2009, in effort to reduce its carbon footprint and create more jobs, Sport Science shifted the majority of its manufacturing from overseas facilities to domestic manufacturers based in the Carolinas. This change marked the first “Locally Grown” performance shirt at that time. This manufacturing shift eliminated more than 7,850 miles of traveling and all the fossil fuel that goes with it.
