I like the flexibility of the work hours which allow me to spend more time with my family during evenings, on weekends and especially during the holidays. Corey

K1 continues to provide me with a challenging career, allowing me to work in the small community I live in.  I enjoy and take pride in the fact that I have seen K1 grow from a very small company to one that is nationwide, now known as one of the best in the hockey jersey industry.  And we are continuing to grow!

I like the challenge of creating the many different styles of jerseys.  The variety of colors and fabrics makes each day different, and an opportunity to learn something new.  It’s really rewarding to see the finished product and know that I hand made  a jersey who that will be very special to someone.  And I do really enjoy sewing!

I like the people I get to work with, from the co-workers in the office to the many different dealers across North America. It’s exciting when you ship products to a customer and have them share how happy they are with K1’s quality, pricing and customer service. Connie
