Berryville, AR – After sitting at number 35 for the last two years, Kerusso has climbed to number 24 on the just-released annual list of 2008 Top-Volume Decorators by Impressions magazine. With more than 1.6 million total finished garments and more than 2 million total impressions in 2007, Kerusso’s 33% growth rate also puts them in the top ten fastest-growing companies on this prestigious, annual top-50 list.
“We’re very excited about our position on this annual list, and it’s a real milestone for us,” said Vic Kennett, CEO/President of Kerusso. “We’ve worked really hard to increase the numbers and the quality of our apparel, so to be noticed this way by the industry is an honor for us, and a tribute to all the employees who make Kerusso great.”
Decorators on Impressions’ annual list of the biggest shops, compiled by assistant editor Susie McManus, are masters of customer service, production methods and other business basics. And it’s that artistic talent pool, along with production wizardry and visionary leadership that has propelled an elite group of shops onto Impressions’ annual list of Top-Volume Decorators.
Impressions magazine, located in Alpharetta, Georgia, is the one-stop source for decorated apparel industry professionals, and the one source they can trust for authoritative, up-to-date information on screen printing, embroidery, heat-applied graphics and inkjet-to-garment printing.
