Philadelphia was a major apparel manufacturing and design center in 1929. The Norman Shatz Company started with a variety of trim and notions, such as buttons, buckles and narrow trimming for many well-known brand names which were established in Philadelphia.
During World War II, the company expanded with the growing knitting industry in Philadelphia and the South. The Company's expertise widened to service specialty manufacturers making sweaters, knitted outerwear, knitted swimwear and underwear.
Substantial expansion materialized in the post-World War II years. The Company was an active supplier-member in the National Knitted Sportswear Association. In the 1950's and 1960's as the apparel industry expanded to the south and mid-west., the Company business-to-business pursued catalog marketing throughout the USA. The Company was a leader in catalog marketing during this period through its distribution of tens of thousands of catalogs to sewing factories throughout the United States.
Many years of catalog distribution built the name recognition and reputation of the Norman Shatz Company. In the 1970's and 1980's as the industry changed again, the company evolved into a full service sourcing specialist to nationally known manufacturers throughout the United States.
National brand manufacturers required specialized products and quality management of the supply chain. The company pioneered high-quality customer service with which manufacturers could depend upon the vendor for accurate record-keeping of exact styles of trim, notions, and findings.
Today the company maintains active accounts throughout the world. The trade name, NORMAN SHATZ CO. USA, and the "Trimming Man" are well known. The demand of the international supply chain is greater than ever. The Company has been continually owned and managed by the Shatz family. Many products, woven and printed labels, braids, draw cords, zippers, fasteners, snaps, narrow twill tapes, plastic buckles and cord locks are sourced and distributed to many locations in the global manufacturing environment.
