NAUMD aspires for global recognition thru its uniform

Dec '07
The National Association of Uniform Manufacturers and Distributors (NAUMD) which serves as the voice of Uniform Industry is a trade association representing the interests and needs of its over 450 member manufacturers, designers, producers and sellers of uniforms and uniform accessories or providers of services to this sector.

NAUMD caters to the entire Uniform Industry including Band uniforms, Image apparel, Fire services, Hospitality, Industrial workwear, Law enforcement, Military, Postal, Restaurant, Food service, School, Security, Theme parks, Themed retail, and accessories for any and all types of uniforms.

In an exclusive interview with Fibre2fashion, Mr Richard J Lerman, President,NAUMD, talked about the inception of this particular organization and said, “NAUM was created in 1933 to represent Uniform Manufacturers in many ways. In the late '70s Dealer/Distributors who were part of the National Uniform Dealers Association, merged with NAUM to form the National Association of Uniform Manufacturers & Distributors. Early this year, at the request of the Board of Directors, the membership of NAUMD overwhelmingly voted to extend membership to the North-American Uniform Manufacturers & Dealer/Distributors thus forming the now to be known as North-American Association of Uniform Manufacturers & Distributors.”

While talking about raw materials sources for uniforms, Lerman said, “NAUMD members source raw materials for their clients uniforms from wherever may be the best fit. However, many of our member clients have US based manufacturers only, such as the Postal Service and the Military. Many police departments also have such a requirement. In the area of Image wear, the products may be sourced worldwide.”
