“We look forward to working with Blair’s loyal customer base to both increase the Blair program business and expand their distribution of the broader 1888 Mills product offering,” said Jack Bray, president of the commercial division for 1888 Mills, in a statement.
Blair’s “innovative performance-based textiles” will improve 1888’s textiles offerings, added Rick Basinger, director of quality assurance for 1888 Mills.
