Drew Pearson International eyes further growth

Drew Pearson International is aiming to become the one-stop-shop for all types of licensed headwear and accessories.

The company’s sales director, Michael Ball, told Licensing Source Book that, despite the pandemic, it has been an exciting year at DPI.

“We have taken on some on great new, talented people in design, sales management and administration, all with a wealth of experience in the headwear and accessories business,” he said. “We have added three new factories to our existing manufacturing base as well as new customers, exciting new licences and new product categories.”

DPI has partnered with Hasbro in the headwear and accessories category, while it has also signed with Xbox for headwear and from spring 2022 it will be the exclusive licensee for sports and lifestyle brand Patrick. Other new signings include Hey Duggee, CoComelon, Blippi, Team GB and Battersea Dogs & Cats Home.

Michael continued: “We are known for our expertise in headwear, but we also have sunglasses and bag factories and a wealth of design experience for all categories that we hope to introduce to our key retail partners in the very near future.

“We want licensors to think of Drew Pearson International first when they are considering the right partner to work with on new licences – a trusted partner who will not only be able to develop exciting and innovative new products and ideas, but will reliably deliver them to retail and accommodate every buying team’s requirements.”
