EMB Designs is deeply rooted in tradition with great pride and a genuine pursuit of client satisfaction. Founded in 2001 as EMB Designs, the company was historically known as The Buckeye Apparel Company, which was founded in 1969. Buckeye was a contract embroider and garment manufacturer making uniforms and work pants for over 100 years for many well-known retailers such as LL Bean and Lands’ End.
When Michelle Ebbing, CEO, purchased the company in 2001 from the James Brothers, she had a dream of taking the company direct to market. She invested money in new embroidery and screen-printing machinery and utilized the talents of the original Buckeye production team to find new and better ways to serve the client.
Within a couple years, she had managed to work her way into the direct retail market, selling branded apparel to many local companies. With a dream to expand every farther into the larger corporate marketplace, Michelle instituted client web stores and branding to give our clients an all inclusive service. We make it easy for you and others to Love Your Brand.
Love your brand isn’t just a tagline, it’s a philosophy and a way of doing business at EMB.
What’s not to love about that?
