MP John Oliver Visits Growing Oakville Apparel Company
Oakville Based Entripy Plans to expand facility, hire more employees
(Oakville, ON – February 15, 2017) – While John Oliver, Member of Parliament, Oakville may be used to suits and ties, last week he toured Entripy Custom Clothing, an Oakville grown producer of custom t-shirts. Over 3.5 million custom t-shirts each year are made in the company’s 35,000 square foot facility and the company is poised for further expansion and hiring.
During the tour, Oliver was struck by the company’s rapid growth. Entripy was born in 1999 out of a university dorm room and now employs over 100 full-time staff and is the largest custom apparel decorator in Canada.
“One of the best parts of being an MP is seeing small and medium sized businesses in our community thrive and grow,” says Oliver. “The growth of Entripy is a remarkable success story and the planned expansion will create even more quality jobs and generate economic activity in our community,” says Oliver.
“I attribute our double digit growth to our continued investment in new technology to increase efficiency and improve the client experience,” says Jas Brar, President & CEO, Entripy. “We’re also very proud to be one of Canada’s top 100 employers paying every employee a living wage – we don’t have any minimum wage jobs here.” Many of Entripy’s employees are newcomers to Canada.
During the tour, MP Oliver witnessed first-hand how custom clothing, hats and many other items are produced and toured the company’s warehouse where custom apparel orders are packaged and shipped out to customers across Canada. He also visited Entripy’s pre-production department where client artwork is prepared for printing and met the company’s Information Services 9 in-house developers who manage all aspects of Entripy’s website experience.
