Custom sports jackets and specialty apparel maker Fordham Inc, an operating unit of Redi-Direct Marketing Inc, has changed its name to United Sport Apparel.

The rebranding follows its acquisitions this year of Hewitt Manufacturing and Gorga Athletic Wear.

James Lombard, president of Fordham Inc, says: "We've merged three well-known suppliers of varsity sport jackets, specialty apparel, uniforms and lettering.

"Rebranding as United Sport Apparel recognises the individuality of each line within the combined company, while demonstrating the larger scope of our product offerings."
