LOS ANGELES, Dec. 19, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Strategic Partners, Inc. (SPI), the leading designer, manufacturer and distributor of high-quality, fashion-inspired medical apparel in the world has announced a new partnership with FOLK Co. Ltd in Japan. Jay Yard, VP, International Sales, developed and negotiated the joint agreement that was signed by Strategic Partners Chief Executive Officer Mike Singer.
"We are excited and proud to enter into this exclusive agreement with FOLK," said Mr. Yard. "FOLK has a 114-year history in the Japanese uniform market and is known for their innovative fabric and product development. FOLK's attention to detail and quality apparel make this a truly ideal partnership," he added.
The arrangement with FOLK begins January 1, 2017, and builds on the 10-year history that Cherokee Medical Uniforms has enjoyed in Japan. The partnership allows FOLK to design, manufacture and distribute Cherokee Medical Uniforms developed exclusively for the Japanese healthcare market. These medical uniforms are in response to a worldwide trend away from white uniforms toward colorful, fashionable medical apparel.
Mr. Yard and executives from FOLK will celebrate the launch of this exclusive Cherokee line in Tokyo in late January. The new, colorful Cherokee fashion medical scrubs will be available in January 2017 through FOLK distributors.
