Everlast Named Industrial Company of The Year

Each year at the annual banquet and awards dinner sponsored by the Moberly Area Chamber of Commerce, individuals and businesses alike are recognized for their contribution to not only the City of Moberly but the entire region as well. This year the presentation of the Industrial Company of the Year Award in partnership with Moberly Area Economic Development Corporation was presented to Everlast Worldwide.

The iconic brand in the sports equipment and apparel industry has roots in the Moberly community that stretch back over forty years. When the manufacturing facility was established in Moberly in 1966, it was one of three plants in North America that produced sporting goods equipment. Since then the company has grown and constructed a much larger facility than the one it first occupied. Now, the Moberly facility remains as the sole facility in all of North America for the international company.

Everlast traces its beginning to the backroom of a small tailor’s shop in the Bronx, New York in the early 1900’s when the son of a tailor had difficulty finding swimsuits that lasted an entire season. In 1917 a young athlete who would later become a champion by the name of Jack Dempsey introduced the company to the sport that would make them famous the world over, boxing. Sugar Ray Robinson wore Everlast’s gear in route to becoming a middleweight legend in the sport. Today championship athletes worldwide train with and use their products including those at Moberly High School. Some of those names of today are Cara Castronuova, Miguel Cotto, Jon Jones and Reggie Bush to name just of few. Everlast’s history would not be complete without mentioning that the man that many regard as “The Greatest”. Mohammed Ali did what he did clad in those famous white trunks trimmed with a black strip down the side and a satin robe that were manufactured in Moberly, Missouri.

“Everlast’s commitment to the community and its youth is outstanding,” said David Gaines, Vice-President of Moberly Area Economic Development. “It’s for this reason, I was extremely honored to present on behalf of the Moberly Area Chamber of Commerce and the community, this year’s award for the Industrial Company of the Year to Everlast Worldwide and their dedicated team of employees.”

The Moberly Auditorium was filled to capacity for the event as Ray Stewart, Vice-President of Operations for Everlast accepted the award on behalf of the over 100 quality craftsmen and women that come from communities all over the Moberly Region.
