Tag Team Uniforms
TAG Team Uniforms is a manufacturer and marketer of custom apparel for athletes of all ages throughout North America. Its production facility, located in Licking, Missouri, is home to 150 employees, 138 of whom are involved with producing team uniforms for a wide variety of high school sports.
TAG Team's growth has been remarkable with sales increasing from $1.5 million in 2004 to a projected total of $6.8 million in 2007. Saint Louis Business Development Fund (now Regional Growth Capital) invested $500,000 in TAG Team because the company's growth capital needs exceeded what Heartland Bank could provide, and the owner did not want to sell part of TAG to outside investors.
