Mathews Team Sports values the partnerships we build with our customers as well as our manufacturers. Building and maintaining these partnerships is the foundation of our business. We also realize that partnerships go both ways, and when a partner supports our company and employees, Mathews Team Sports will do everything in its power to reciprocate that support. Whether that means screen-printing championship t-shirts on a Saturday morning or driving to Illinois to pick up reconditioned helmets, we pride ourselves on offering as much support as humanly possible. We are extremely proud of the partnerships we have built. Our commitment to partnership extends well beyond athletic apparel which is clear with second term seven-year partnership with the Williamson County school district.
We partner with many of the top sporting goods manufacturers in the country. For apparel, stock and custom uniforms, we represent adidas, Under Armour, Wilson, Badger and Rawlings among many others. Due to our in-house screen-printing operation, embroiderer and graphic artist, we can quickly deliver top-quality decorated goods to our customers. Schutt, Douglas, Bison, Champro, Fisher and Athletic Specialties are just a few of the brands we carry to supply you with the best equipment available at excellent prices.
We place great value on our promises. It is our goal to deliver customer orders by their deadlines, and we do everything in our power to not only meet but exceed those deadlines. Our entire team is committed to doing whatever needs to be done to deliver on our promises. No one is perfect, but we pride ourselves on communicating with our partners if any delivery date is in jeopardy of not being met. In addition, we offer daily deliveries within the region and communicate with front office staff and coaches when deliveries have been made.
