March 21, 2023

Next Level Apparel (NLA), Los Angeles, has announced a partnership with Grupo M, a leading textile manufacturer, to provide nearshore production while supporting NLA’s move to 100% U.S. cotton for its entire apparel line.

With this strategic move, NLA will be able to bring production closer to home for improved speed-to-market, decreased geo-political risk and increased supply chain transparency, including upstream traceability of the cotton it uses, according to the company.

“With our premium products, our customers not only look good, but they also can feel good about how those products are sourced,” says NLA CEO Randy Hales. “As part of our ethos, we seek like-minded suppliers who prioritize sustainability and uphold equally high standards. This exciting partnership with Grupo M is another step forward in our longstanding commitment to supply chain visibility and accountability.”

The partnership is a natural move forward for both companies as they are aligned in providing global partners and customers with apparel that prioritizes ethical and sustainable production.

“We are thrilled to collaborate with NLA to offer nearshore production while furthering our shared visions of innovation and transparency,” says Grupo M President Fernando Capellán. “We appreciate Next Level Apparel’s passion, enthusiasm and diligence in bringing the highest quality products to its customers while being equally committed to ethical and responsible sourcing.”
