Sweat X and Riddell Collaborate to Improve Operational Efficiency and Provide Cleaner Equipment to Football Athletes Everywhere
Beachwood, OH – Ohio-based Renegade Brands announced today they completed a 10-machine deployment of Sweat X Laundry Cleaning Line at Riddell’s new 350,000 square foot production, reconditioning and distribution facility in North Ridgeville, Ohio. Entering an innovative new collaboration between two local companies, Sweat X is proud to be the reconditioning cleaner used in washing helmets, shoulder pads and football uniforms at Riddell’s Ohio operations.
The new relationship will benefit both companies, thousands of sports organizations, and millions of athletes. Implementing Sweat X’s Laundry Cleaning Line as part of Riddell’s overall operation offers increased efficiency through reduced rework and decreased washing cycles, enabling Riddell to condense the laundry footprint within the facility. Changes will impact production immediately as the new detergent is safer for employees to handle, requires less water for effective washes, is non-toxic and 100 percent biodegradable, with no dermal impact.
“Implementing a system like this is great for our equipment reconditioning and laundry process. In conjunction with Sweat X, we’re able to work more efficiently and deliver a better finished product to our customers,” said Ben Marker, general manager of Riddell’s North Ridgeville facility. “This collaboration is a huge win for the athletic programs we service.”
The Sweat X Laundry Cleaning Line, which includes a detergent, stain and odor spray, is designed to remove the toughest sports stains and odors. Used by over 160 professional teams, collegiate sports programs and youth sports teams across the United States, the Sweat X detergent and laundry line’s NANOVASIVE™ technology is small enough to exfoliate stains and sweat beads housing bacteria known to cause odor in uniforms and activewear. Sweat X Laundry Cleaning Line is also ranked No. 1 in soil release testing amongst leading detergent brands.
“The Sweat X team is honored to launch the local collaboration with Riddell and looks forward to continuing to assist with the cleaning and reconditioning of helmets and shoulder pads for professional, collegiate and youth football players and programs,” said Sweat X Inventor and Renegade Brands CEO Cathy Horton. “We are proud to be working with an organization committed to improving athlete protection and this partnership helps Riddell take another step in achieving their mission.”
