Alleson Athletic closing facility in Henrietta, 75 jobs impacted


Athletic gearmaker Alleson Athletic plans to close its facility in Henrietta, a closure that will impact 75 workers.

The facility is set to close in June, according to a notice the company filed with the state.

The closing comes less than two years after the business was bought by North Carolina-based Badger Sportswear in 2017.

Badger Sportswear was embroiled in controversy last December as colleges pulled Badger gear from its bookstores across the country after an Associated Press report found the company used products that were purportedly sewn by Muslims being held in Chinese internment camps.

The company said it would stop using products from that supplier in January.
