Dickies

    • Through its dedication to innovation and continual customer contact, Williamson-Dickie Mfg Co has transformed itself from a small bib overall company to the largest workwear manufacturer in the world
    • Sold in every state in the US, Dickies now offers a broad spectrum of work garments ranging from work pants and work shirts to denim jeans and women's workwear
    • Since its beginnings in 1922, every piece of Dickies workwear has stood for the quality, toughness, and pride that embodies the spirit of the American worker
    • CN Williamson and EE "Colonel" Dickie began their business careers in the "vehicle and harness" business in Bryan, Texas
    • In 1918, they made what turned out to be a momentous decision when they and a few friends established the US Overall Company
    • Then, in 1922, C Don Williamson joined with his father and cousin to buy 100% of the overall company on a one-third-each basis and renamed it Williamson-Dickie Manufacturing Company
    • From its early years, Williamson-Dickie enjoyed steady growth, slowed only by the Great Depression, and during World War II, the company was sequestered to produce millions of uniforms for the nation's armed forces
    • In converting to civilian production after the war, C Don Williamson began a strategy of geographical expansion and established new production facilities, warehouses, and sales territories throughout the United States
    • In the late 1950's, Williamson-Dickie became an international company by expanding into the European market and the Middle Eastern market - where Texas oilmen introduced the Dickies brand to Middle Eastern oil fields
    • While Williamson-Dickie began as a bib overall company, today it has grown to be the number one manufacturer of work apparel worldwide
    • By continually expanding and updating its selection, Williamson-Dickie now offers garments ranging from its staple work pants and work shirts to items such as women's workwear, chore coats, and denim jeans
    • Dickies® workwear is currently sold in all 50 states and throughout the world in countries such as South Africa, Australia, Russia, Chile, Japan, Iceland, Canada, Europe and Mexico
