Under Armour – Advanced Manufacturing

Under Armour’s Innovation Team is a small, innovative group within UA charged with not only innovating new products and materials but also with HOW products are made.

Situation:

Looking to revolutionize the footwear and apparel manufacturing industry, UA has purchased and developed the Lighthouse Space at the City Garage facility. Designed to test the latest tools and techniques and provide a roadmap for local-for-local manufacturing the UA team engaged MD MEP to provide training, strategy and project facilitation.

Solution:

MD MEP worked closely with the leadership of the Lighthouse Team to provide facilitated strategy discussions, develop a training plan and roadmap for the new Innovation team, conduct manufacturing Benchmark visits an provided training in the areas of leadership, team building and manufacturing processes. The project resulted in more than 20 new hires.
