Project Description

Nokona is a small high end baseball glove manufacturer that is the last standing US manufacturer of baseball gloves.  The gloves are stunning and can be made to order.  The founding family with operations in Texas brought in investors from the East who took control and tried to expand and compete with the big international sporting goods companies and as you would expect they had trouble getting retail space and competing.  In addition the investors entered into a manufacturing contracted with a company on the East Cost to manufacture baseball gloves.  Why a second manufacturing facility with zero experience in manufacturing baseball gloves is a question for the ages.

Upon being engaged to assist with the wind down phase of the situation it was decided that it was a company worth trying to save and sell.  After about four months we had a buyer and sold the company keeping the last baseball glove manufacturer in the Good Old USA alive.
