SPC Manufacturing Company was founded in Chicago, IL in 1980 as a supplier to the specialty Advertising Industry, providing a variety of custom sewn and printed products services.
SPC Manufacturing Company evolved through the mid-80s, creating padded sales cases for our original client base. These customers needed their sales forces to have an organized, functional, custom bag that would fulfill their specific needs, as well as promote their company.
SPC Manufacturing Company experienced steady growth, designing thousands of unique, custom-sewn products for a variety of industries. From a modest 2,000 square foot facility, SPC Manufacturing Company expanded and ultimately purchased a 15,000 square foot facility on the west side of Chicago.
SPC Manufacturing Company was the first custom-sewn products company to design a specialty case to package croquet and volleyball sets and accessories. We were also one of the leading designers of cooler bags for commuters.
Our reputation for designing unique, new concepts for clients spread and in 1997, SPC Manufacturing Company moved to Johnson City, TN in the Appalachian Mountains where it currently resides. A 15,000 square foot building in historic downtown was renovated to accommodate the high tech demands of the company.
SPC Manufacturing owner Kim Schneider has been a leading advocate of historic restoration in this area.
Today, SPC Manufacturing Company continues to partner with our clients, exceeding their product and service expectations. As an American Manufacturer of custom sewn products in a growing sea of imports, we take pride in our “Made in the USA” label, private, female-ownership and commitment in the quality of our work, and ultimately, in our clients’ success.
