AFTCO is a growing apparel company in the fishing & outdoor space with a legacy of USA-made hard goods. We are not a fashion company. From the freezing temperatures in Michigan’s upper peninsula to the blazing humidity of summer in Costa Rica - our products are built to handle the extreme. We believe in producing products that are built to last, balanced against the preferences of a primarily Southeast & Midwest customer. The ideal candidate stresses fabric selection for optimal performance, lasting construction, and subtle design cues over fashion preferences.
We are a 62-year-old, 3rd generation, family-owned & operated business that believes deeply in the long-term. We do not focus on big-box retail, but instead on organic long-lasting growth through key independent retailers and our direct-to-consumer efforts. In a world where private equity gobbles up brands in order to mass-produce cheaply built goods – we are becoming an exception to the rule. We are looking for an individual who shares our long-term thought process.
