Vantage Apparel, leading manufacturer and decorator of logo apparel, has been chosen by PGA of America as an apparel supplier and the exclusive embroiderer for its Member Merchandise Program.
The Member Merchandise Program allows the more than 27,000 PGA members to buy product with the PGA of America, PGA Master Professional, PGA Professional, PGA Certified Professional as well as, new for this year, PGA Championship and Ryder Cup logos.
In addition to lowering product cost, this new partnership reduces the risk of inventory accumulation for PGA of America. The strength of the revamped operation should lead to a more successful and beneficial program.
"I believe the new program, which focuses on product, presentation and pricing, along with the option to purchase PGA Championship and Ryder Cup logoed product, will be a service that is fully embraced and utilized by the membership," said Michael Quirk, senior director, merchandising for the PGA of America.
"We are very excited to work closely with such a prestigious, highly-regarded organization," said Eric Eder, director of sales, Vantage Apparel. "PGA of America aims to provide the best products at the most affordable prices for its members, which is exactly what Vantage strives for every day. This is a winning combination for all parties involved."
