Our Story - Our Purpose

Our Mission

We believe human beings who respect mother nature also care about the clothing that they wear to protect mother Earth. Bamtech’s vision is to be a responsible, premium activewear company who contributes in full degree to a sustainable world and community.

We believe deeply in integrity, relentless improvement, and persistence as our values that guide us in how we conduct our business, how we show up for our customers and suppliers. It’s these values and our vision that drive our mission to create the first, premium activewear brand that keeps all product manufacturing in the USA, using fabrics that are all sustainable and keep you feeling your best.

We believe our home-grown operations will provide jobs and opportunities for American men and women in the garment industry, keeping them here instead of shipping their jobs to offshores. This way, we act as a role model keeping our garment industry vibrant, and incentivize other businesses to do the same.

It all started with a pair of socks

After graduating high school, I decided to enlist in the US Navy. Moving forward, I was trained to become an Aviation Mechanical Engineer. However, when I got out of my service, I did not have a strong desire to pursue Mechanical Engineering as my career path. I then followed my passion and ambition of owning a business, largely because of the influence of my grandpa, who has been a business owner for over 50 years.                                                                                                                                                                    I saw how he has put his heart and best efforts into growing his business and at the same time providing for his family. His entrepreneurial streak is still burning bright, and shining even to this day. His journey has served as a great role model for me to find my own. I began to explore and think about areas in my life where I have encountered challenges. I knew that if I dug deeper into a problem that has frustrated me, others might have experienced similar pain. 

That is when I hatched my first business idea – I recalled the pain that I experienced while training at US Navy Bootcamp. The clothing the military issued to newly-enlisted members was of extremely poor quality. I experienced, firsthand, a severe case of athlete’s foot because the socks they gave to us, kept ripping and were not anti-bacterial.                                                                                                                                                                          I realized that if this problem is not addressed, it will never go away. I wanted to make a difference for those serving our country and prevent them from going through a similar experience as I did.                                                                                                                                                                                                So, I looked into developing my first, active-wear prototype, starting with sock apparel. As I learned more about the process, I created this vision of making my clothing products long-lasting, bacteria-free, and environmentally friendly. I found the solution by using sustainable materials such as bamboo and eucalyptus to enhance the durability and anti-bacterial aspects of activewear clothing. To make my product even more compelling I have decided to manufacture every product in the US, from design to fabrication and production.                                                                                                                                                                                                                             It is my hope and mission that “Made in the USA” and “Reducing Carbon-Emissions” continue to be a mantra for my business, Bamtech, for years to come. With strong efforts, I have launched new products for men that are strictly organic and made from eco-friendly fabrics. I am proud to represent these products, as it contributes to mitigating a worldwide carbon-emission issue that the clothing apparel market has not fully addressed.
