“After many years of working in the golf and resort industry, we decided to formally establish our Flyway Golf Brand,” Per John Wagner, CEO of Flyway Headwear.  “Last year was a practice round at the PGA Show for us to meet buyers and tee-off the brand.  This year we are back with a much bigger presence including a new booth, new location and special guests.”

“Our U.S.A manufacturing facility allows us to customize and maximize our customers brand power with short lead times and personal service.  Maximizing return on merchandise spend for our clients is where we excel compared to commodity items like ball caps.  After years partnering with iconic brands such as Anheuser Busch, Disney, and Ralph Lauren we understand the value added of unique logo applications, branding and world class execution” Wagner added.

“Many of our retailers told us that they were receiving requests for an alternate to the baseball cap. Customers are looking for more sun protection as they spend extended periods of time outdoors”, according to Wagner.
