The Lawrence-based 99Degrees Custom was recognized at the Massachusetts State House as part of the 2st Annual Manufacturing Month Award Ceremony, honoring manufacturers across the Commonwealth.

99Degrees Custom is an apparel manufacturer, specializing in sewn and bonded sports and activewear. The company produces for leading and emerging brands that produce technical apparel for a number of markets including running, yoga, crossfit, cycling and rock climbing.

99Degrees Custom was nominated for this honor by State Representative Diana DiZoglio (D-Methuen), a member of the legislature’s Manufacturing Caucus.

“It is an honor to receive this nomination and to reflect on the last few years,” said Brenna Schneider, founder and CEO of 99Degrees Custom. “I’m thankful for the continued local and state support which have helped to advance my vision and catalyze our growth. It is my team’s spirit of innovation and the energy in our rising immigrant city that motivate me to build a future for apparel manufacturing that will make the Merrimack Valley proud.”

“Local manufacturers like 99Degrees Custom are the backbone of our economy, in the Merrimack Valley and across the Commonwealth, and critical to ensuring job growth and creation,” said DiZoglio. “I was honored to nominate 99Degrees Custom, a sterling example of American ingenuity that provides jobs across a wide spectrum of the Massachusetts workforce, for this recognition.”
