All New American’s ears perked up when Tyler Merritt, co-founder of Nine Line Apparel was recently interviewed on Fox Business. Nine Line Apparel makes patriotic-themed apparel in Atlanta, GA.
Tyler started Nine Line in 2012 in his garage and is moving into a 60,000 sq. ft. building. Still on active duty, Tyler’s back is covered by an incredible staff of about 140 vets and spouses. His hope is to show that you can bring textile manufacturing back to America. He is projecting about 20M in sales for 2017.
The purpose of Nine Line is to bridge the gap between civilian and civil servant and to reinvigorate a sense of patriotism and national pride.
The company and its founders operate under the following Tenets:
- Respect for the American flag and what it stands for.
- Support those who have your back and serve honorably as members of the military, the police, the fire department and any other public service.
- Be proud of your country.
Please meet the co-founders of Nine Line.
