PROPPER INTERNATIONAL was founded in 1967 by William T. Propper, an entrepreneur with a talent for innovation and a passion for manufacturing. Through hard work, and a dedicated staff, PROPPER INTERNATIONAL grew its business as well as its reputation for quality. PROPPER eventually landed its first government contract with the U.S. Navy, manufacturing caps known as "Dixie cups".
Today, PROPPER remains committed to manufacturing the highest quality apparel for every customer we serve. This commitment has earned PROPPER a long standing record of success, as well as a legacy of comfortable, rugged, and relentlessly durable apparel. We are one of the few apparel manufacturers to earn an ISO 9001:2000 rating from the British Standards Institute. For over 40 years, we've been on the backs of the front lines™, and we're just getting started.
