Corporate Responsibility

SanMar is proud of its commitment to responsible sourcing

Our SanMar Family Values are at the heart of all we do. We strive to make a difference every day in the lives of our employees and the people who make our products around the world. We’re committed to investing in each other and supporting all of our employees, helping them to grow and thrive in their chosen career paths. We deliver quality products, IT support and marketing tools to help our customers grow their businesses, passionately serving their varying and unique needs. As an industry leader, we’re proud to do the right thing when making each and every business decision. Our founder, Marty Lott, instilled a vision early on that treating each other with respect and dignity is paramount and that life is too short to not be nice.

Our commitment to corporate responsibility combines all of our SanMar Family Values, driving us to support the people who create, ship and sell our apparel and accessories; to deliver quality, sustainable products that are ethically and responsibly sourced; and to do the right thing for our planet.

As a family-owned and -operated company, we are proud to bring our family values to our work at home and across the globe. We believe that business done well has the power to do good, and we strive to make a difference in all that we do.
