When founding Nonpareil Manufacturing Company in 1922, Alvie Sandeberg could never have envisioned his boxing equipment company would blossom into a world leader in the sporting goods market, offering products for all major sporting activities across the globe.
The brand GARED was established in 1958 in honor of the company chairman Edgar Littmann, who launched GARED into the forefront of basketball and volleyball product innovation. Under his direction and leadership vision, GARED developed many of the patents and industry standards that are universally used today.
At the turn of the 21st century, GARED reinvented itself to serve expanding markets including soccer, lacrosse, park site amenities, football and gymnasium structures under the leadership of Dimitrios Koukoulomatis and John Duggins. Today, the GARED vision is limitless as we look to the future to continue to build onto our 90 year legacy in the sports market.
GARED® services the after-market, retail, and custom gymnasium structure markets, and have become the leader in innovative product design, precision engineering, and premium manufacturing of sports equipment. Our centrally located manufacturing and warehouse facilities, and new state-of-the-art powder coating operation in Noblesville, Indiana have enabled us to offer our customers shorter lead times and more economical shipping costs.
We sell our products through a trusted network of dealers across the United States and around the world.
