New, state-of-the-art facility doubles production capacity for contract embroidery

AVENEL, N.J. (January 7th, 2019): Vantage Apparel, award-winning decorator, industry top source for custom logo apparel, and SanMar® PSST approved decorator, has moved its embroidery facility in Santa Ana, California to an expanded 17,000 sq. foot space; located at 3321 S. Susan Street, Santa Ana. The new facility for Vantage West is located just a mile from the original plant and opened for business on January 7, 2019.

Vantage's President and CEO, Ira Neaman commented, "The market has responded well to our on-demand model for decorated apparel and is taking advantage of recent freight incentive programs with SanMar, alphabroder, and S&S activewear. Doubling our space in California has enabled us to add single-piece embroidery service, and eliminate receiving and storage constraints. Strategic investments in equipment will double our production over the next two years."

Vantage West operates 140 embroidery heads, and maintains an onsite showroom and separate meeting space for local distributors. The new Santa Ana location is synced with the company's headquarters in Avenel, NJ and central embroidery facility in St. Louis, MO. This provides distributors with a national embroidery network, consistent quality, and award-winning service across the US.

The company has planned an open house for promotional products distributors in mid-February. To attend the event, or to schedule a visit, contact Marci Newsom, Western Regional Sales Director at
