Meet Our Manufacturers

Whip Six Enterprises, Inc is a socially conscientious corporation that believes in the dignity of the common working man and woman, and to that end will forgo "obscene" profit margins in order to stay consistent and true to that core philosophy. Unabashed greed and profiteering on the part of multi-national corporations, through the medium of Asian-outsourced manufacturing and image branding, has run amok in today's global free-market economy -- so much so the average Western consumer has grown desensitized by the means through which their purchases were produced. Most famous brand name active-wear companies use Asian manufacturers who do not adhere to the principles of a living wage or clean, healthy work environments -- and many employ very young teenage girls in horrific sweatshop conditions. Human Rights proponents throughout the world have consistently censured several well-known Western multi-national conglomerates for enabling these abominable work conditions to exist. One of these financially admired yet ethically-challenged sportswear multi-nationals, posted a $9.7 Billion (USD) gross operating profit for 2011. Whip Six Enterprises, as a corporation, will focus primarily on the production and distribution of high quality performance athletic apparel -- in opposition to the modern marketing methodology of "image branding" -- with the international consumer.

We are very pleased at Whip Six to offer only merchandise created by manufacturers who utilize fair-labor practices and strict quality control measures, while producing their goods using motivated Western workers in environmentally sound manufacturing plants.
