Our Mission Statement
Our mission is to manufacture the finest quality, custom-made athletic apparel in our industry, to deliver our products in a timely fashion, and to provide them at competitive prices by selling directly to our customers.
- When you do business with Cisco Athletic, we promise to treat you courteously and respectfully.
- We are not perfect, but we will tell you the truth — good news or bad.
- Your garments will not leave our factory unless we would be willing to wear them ourselves.
Our Company History
Cisco (now Cisco Athletic) was established in 1982 as a wholesale distributor, screen printer and embroiderer of top-of-the-line athletic wear and sportswear. Initially, our customers consisted primarily of schools, organizations and corporations in the Baltimore area. As our business grew and our customer base spread farther and farther from home, our commitment to outstanding service never changed.
In the early 1990s, in an effort to further improve quality and service, we developed our own manufacturing facility in which all cutting, sewing and printing were done under one roof. This manufacturing capability allows us to keep garment quality at an extremely high level while enabling us to meet near-impossible deadlines. As a result, we are now one of the region’s leading manufacturers of professional-quality, custom-made athletic uniforms and sportswear.
Still located in Baltimore, Maryland, Cisco Athletic now manufactures and distributes our products to thousands of schools, universities, organizations and corporations worldwide. We do not sell through dealers or retailers, but instead we sell directly to our customers. Selling direct allows us to keep our prices highly competitive while maintaining the service levels to which our customers have become accustomed.
How We Work
Every garment that we make is truly “made from scratch” and all are generously cut and expertly assembled from American materials and by American workers. We are specialists in the athletic uniform business and consequently carry only the finest athletic fabrics, regardless of cost, and inventory all the colors that any team or group would desire. The quality doesn’t stop there — all sublimation, screen printing, tackle twill work and Swiss embroidery is done on premise and is held to the same standards as the garments themselves.
At Cisco Athletic, your garments won’t leave our factory unless we would wear them ourselves. It is this attention to detail — from cutting, sewing, printing, and even packing and shipping your order — that confirms that we hold all our products to a higher standard.
