Case Study: Patagonia
In 1996, Patagonia wanted to adjust their global sourcing chain because they were experiencing long transit times for US materials and finished goods as well as high duty rates on foreign materials. Although NovaLink only manufactured Patagonia’s polar fleece products at the beginning of the partnership, our portion of the business has grown as a result of our quality, speed to market and deep understanding of Patagonia’s products.
