Northstar is an industry leading product sourcing company focused on high-quality footwear, bags, and apparel. We work closely with our customers to help build their brand while protecting profits and preserving margins. We embrace change and pride ourselves on our ability to adapt to market environments, new technologies, ideas and trends. With offices and partners in key regions worldwide we have an established global supply chain and are uniquely positioned to deliver great product on time.
Northstar was founded by Bob Perkins in 2003 in Seattle, WA. Bob saw an opportunity to leverage his knowledge of footwear design and manufacturing to build a network of trusted factories for US shoe brands seeking overseas production. Later that year we would open our China Sourcing and Production office, followed by an LA Design and Development office in 2010, a UK Sales Office in 2014 and most recently a Mexico Sourcing and Production Office in 2016. Today we have over 350 employees globally and 2017 saw us ship 15 million pairs of footwear to eight key customers. While Northstar has evolved beyond just footwear, Bob’s product driven focus and uncompromising approach to quality have remained the guiding principles of our company.
Northstar offers a full-service sourcing solution including design to fulfillment, material and technology research, in-house testing, prototyping, collaborative design, CAD / blueprints and material development. We approach each customer deliberately and comprehensively, utilizing our vast personnel and experience to find efficient, creative solutions to your unique needs.
