From Our President

Providing our employee-owners and their families opportunities to own homes, educate their children, and enjoy a better quality of life, while delivering headwear that gives our customers protection, identity, and style, has been a hallmark of the Bollman Hat Company since 1868. Our employee-owners are extremely proud of our long and rich heritage and are dedicated stewards of our organization.

We are vibrant, innovative and highly respected. Today, we hold the best collection of brands in the headwear industry. As we approach our 150th year, our future is as exciting and full of promise as ever.

While we still manufacture in the United States, we source hat components and finished hats, bags, scarves, gloves and wraps from more than a dozen countries. We sell these products in over seventy countries. These products are branded with ten of our brand names or made for our private label accounts which lead their markets in many cases as well. Most importantly, our talented and dedicated team, based on four continents, is committed to our future and rewarded by our success.

Our company has acquired and grown brands which have captured the loyalty and emotions of consumers throughout the world. With a continuation of innovative design, great styling, and performance products, we will build upon that loyalty. Bailey®, Betmar®, Country Gentleman®, Eddy Bros®, Helen Kaminski®, Karen Kane®, Jacaru®, KANGOL®, and PANTROPIC® headwear are all brands that are looked upon for innovative products and are demanded by loyal customers in their targeted markets.

As the demand for our brands grow, we have and will continue to spread our wings into other accessory categories.

We pride ourselves on providing world class quality and unsurpassed customer satisfaction while continuously working to improve our quality and delivery. We develop innovative products and offer exceptional value through multiple retail and distributor channels.

Our core value to exercise effective stewardship over the heritage and assets handed down from past generations will be upheld as our people pioneer change by listening, thinking, and acting with integrity for the long term. We will achieve excellence by taking ownership, supporting our teammates, giving more than we take, and treating others fairly.

As an employee-owned company, we take more pride in and ownership of our work. While we are very proud of our long history, our committed team embraces the future and new challenges with enthusiasm and confidence.
