New England Footwear, the parent of GoLite Footwear, expanded its corporate headquarters to bring everything under one roof in Stratham, NH., as well as to establish U.S. production.
The new space will house a Development Center, and in the near future a fully functional factory utilizing a proprietary manufacturing process that produces performance footwear right here in the U.S., for less than the landed costs of comparable shoes produced in China today. This has been the plan of founder Doug Clark from the very beginning of New England Footwear.
“The opportunity to return footwear manufacturing to New England, and ensure it can stay here forever, has been my passion for twenty years. With the help of the Green Launching Pad and this move, we are closer than ever to making it a reality,” said Clark.
New England Footwear’s new address is 22 Marin Way, Stratham, NH 03885.
New England Footwear, based in Newmarket, NH, has three footwear collections: GoLite Footwear, Variōs by GoLite, and Sunapee by GoLite. New England Footwear specializes in end-use specific footwear that meets the real needs of real people, offering unparalleled footwear construction using Rock Absorber technology, premium leather, Gripstick Rubber, flexible Gecko outsoles, and a patented PreciseFit system.
