While others moved their manufacturing operations overseas, we wished them well and then built two more factories in the US. We’ve made our own goods here for more than a century and that’s not going to change. Our American factories allow us to keep an ever-watchful eye on product innovation and quality while giving us the capacity to manufacture even more of our own products. That’s the Filson way — a longstanding, stubborn approach, built upon practices and beliefs that have become increasingly more relevant over the last 117 years.
Since July of last year, we've doubled our manufacturing positions and retail employees as well as doubled our number of US-based retail stores. And that's just the beginning, we plan to create more jobs in America and continue to increase our manufacturing capabilities in the future.
