THE RICHARDSON STORY

Over the next 10 years,

baseball became a strong focus for our company. We wanted to be a bigger part of our favorite pastime, so we developed our own product lines and offered expanded assortments of equipment and apparel for all levels of play. The quality of our product, and our commitment to customer service fueled demand and increased our presence on fields across the country.

Today, we produce a full line of headwear options

for customers around the world. We are a vertically integrated design and manufacturing company, with a large selection of high-quality styles and colors ready for immediate delivery. We are also a leader in the custom cap market, creating personalized hats for youth & college baseball teams, retail brands, corporate business, breweries, and everything in between.

The Richardson story began in the late 1960s

when Howard Wicklund and Neil Richardson opened up shop in Eugene, Oregon. Originally, the company was called Howard Wicklund Sporting Goods and operated as a wholesale distributor. Then, in 1970, the Richardson family purchased the company and Richardson Sports was born.

The cap market exploded in the early 90’s.

People have always sought performance from their caps, but now they wanted more ways to express themselves in their day-to-day. This headwear boom presented new opportunities for our team to innovate a more diverse product assortment. As a result, we expanded into the licensed, collegiate and corporate headwear business.

Innovation will always be our inspiration.

This is how we got to where we are, and this will take us anywhere we go. Quality in every stitch. Pride in every cap.
 
Richardson is a family owned and operated company headquartered in Springfield, Oregon, with an east coast distribution center in Ohio. We are a vertically integrated designer, distributor, and manufacturer of performance and lifestyle headwear.
Our Commitment

Richardson will always stand for authentic, performance-driven athletic products. Like all athletes and adventurers, sport is at the core of who we are. In pursuit of being the best at our craft, we will work hard every day to improve how our organization performs. 

We will assemble a team of bright, hard-working people and promote creative thinking within our company. We will maintain a positive culture where everyone is recognized and rewarded for their performance and contribution. We will strive for growth, welcome change and create new opportunities for our people.
We will be an outstanding corporate citizen, respect and preserve the environment, and give back to our local community. We will never cut corners to save money, nor will we sacrifice our ethical code for personal gain at the expense of others. Our goal is to be recognized as a leader in the headwear industry by providing quality products and excellent customer care.
Our Friends

We are inspired by sports, community, and the places we play. In addition to the baseball programs we support, we are proud to partner with organizations committed to making our world a better place.
