About Us

City Skyline

Founded in 1995, our primary focus was supplying products for major OEM’s, popular brands and private label programs. Today, we maintain a complete Staff of Creative, Merchandising and Logistics Professionals in Kansas City and we manage a global supply network with DRI sourcing throughout Asia.

While much has changed over the years as our Company has grown, our commitment to quality and innovation still remains true to founder Dave Reid’s original vision. Due to Dave’s dedication and a team of passionate Staff members, DRI excels at each phase of product specialization from trend analysis, design, sourcing, operations and importing. This fully integrated approach has elevated the company to one of the most respected turnkey apparel solution companies in the world today.
