Both sports teams and work teams need uniforms. Why does it have to be so hard to get them? We asked this question for many years and then we went to work solving the problem. gearUP was founded with the mission to remove the pain points involved in ordering uniforms for your team or company. Everything we do is focused on making this process as seamless, fast and customer friendly as possible. If you need uniforms for work or play, we have you covered!
We recognize that each team member brings something unique to the game. We all have a role to play. No matter the situation, teammates always have each other’s back. Like every great team – we always encourage, support and respect one another.
Work / Play
We serve those who work hard both on and off the field. We also believe in the adage - work hard and play hard. You will see this reflected in our products, our service and our people. We strive to have a productive workplace that champions a healthy balance of work and play.
In this fast-paced world, the only constant is change. Successful teams win because they adapt and are open to growth. We promote a culture of learning and continuous improvement. Thus, allowing us to better serve our teams.
