Tegra, an apparel supplier working with companies like Nike to build a responsive vertical supply chain in the Western hemisphere, has acquired US sportswear apparel manufacturer Fjord.

Fjord is a manufacturer of on-field uniforms and gear for elite athletes. Based in the Woodburn/Hubbard area of Oregon, the company produces performance-driven apparel for NFL, Olympic and top-tier collegiate athletes who compete at the highest levels of their sport.

The acquisition, made for an undisclosed sum, will strengthen Tegra's market share and grow its industry leadership and expertise, the company says.

"The addition of Fjord to our team aligns with our core strategic initiative – to grow and strengthen the value we provide to the sports, team and licensing apparel market," says Steve Cochran, Tegra's CEO. "The company has a highly skilled and talented team of employees and a proven 40-year track record of manufacturing excellence, making it a natural fit for our expansion efforts."

Tegra manufactures sports apparel products for global brands that ultimately outfit professional, college and high school athletes and their fans. It has diverse operations in Central America and the US.
