New Era Caps

Ehrhardt Koch revolutionized the caps in 1920 founding a family company called “New Era Cap Co,”.

In 1920, he founded the “E. Koch Cap Company” thanks to a $1.000 borrowed money from his sister. Later, with the new name “New Era Cap Co.”, he started manufacturing 60.000 Gatsby hats. He saw an opportunity to redesign the process and the quality of fashion headwears.
In 1932, his son Harold joined the Company and thanks to his economic vision and his environment knowledge he realized that a change was needed. Manufacturing baseball caps instead of so much Gatsby hats was the best way to carry on its growth. Baseball became more popular and they needed to take advantage on this.

In the 40s they began making adjustable caps with elastic reinforcements.

In 1950, New Era was the only one that made caps for the greatests baseball leagues. In 1953 E. Koch died but nowadays his ideals are still alive. Few years later was created the 59FIFTY model that in 60s were produced exclusively in a new Factory in Derby, New York.

In 1961, New Era was invited to the event Winter Baseball Meetings where they could sell to the Major and Minor League teams, directly.

In 1972 Harold was promoted to executive director and his son, David Koch, was promoted to president after his 14 years in the company. In 1974 almost every MLB team had a deal with New Era.

David Koch’s visión let them grow constantly throughout the years in the 80s. The company was producing headwear for college sports, International Baseball Leagues, tennis and golf increased their demand, as well as military orders. They started selling caps to sports fans, too.
In 1993 New Era became the exclusive supplier of MLB caps.

At the beginning of the 20th century they continued their globalization and opened their first offices in Europe, Japan and Australia.
Recently, NFL and New Era have re-associated and have obtained the exclusive rights to make their hats and caps.
