Kornit Digital, a worldwide market leader in digital textile printing technology announced that GEAR for Sports, a division of Hanesbrands Inc. has installed a Kornit Avalanche Poly Pro system to supplement previously-implemented Kornit Digital direct-to-garment (DTG) print systems within the company’s Lenexa, Kan., production facility.
GEAR for Sports sells its products under some of the most powerful brands in sportswear, including Under Armour, Champion, Alternative Apparel, Hanes, and Gear for Sports. This compelling portfolio of brands allows GEAR to provide a longstanding history of quality graphics and innovative apparel design, giving customers a single resource for all their sportswear needs. Installing Avalanche Poly Pro, which integrates Kornit’s proprietary NeoPoly print technology with the brand’s production strategy will enable them to custom-print poly rich garments on-demand.
GEAR for Sports has implemented three Kornit DTG print systems in the last two years. Having established a process for delivering imprinted cotton garments on-demand, and further answering the voice of its customers, the brand decided to expand these capabilities to polyester and poly-blend pieces.
