100 Years Strong
We're experts in our field and have been involved in every aspect of the textile industry from selling machines and parts, programming and pattern writing, and of course manufacturing.
We’re a small family business located in Ocean Township New Jersey. We’ve been at our current location for 10 years. The business is now in its fourth generation and is being run by industry veteran and knitting expert Paul Van Anda and his sons Eric and Dave. We have a great roster of talented craftspeople who bring your blankets to life all year round.
Of course the main part of our business is the custom knit blanket. We’ve been making those since 1976 and over the course of that time have made well over 2 million of them. They’re occasionally re-branded with someone else’s name but rest assured that the quality is the same.
Before the blanket business we were in the business of selling knitting machines and parts for related niche equipment. While we don’t sell machines anymore, we still sell some parts. That business is called Hudson Automatic.
We also “contract knit” for brands or companies who want to sell knit products but don’t have the capability to manufacture by themselves. We’ve made hats, pillow covers, scarves, sweaters, and of course blankets!
All sorts of reasons! Some of us love to knit. Some love to sew. Others love design and customer service. Others just love mechanics and machine repair.
All of us though love to hear from our happy customers about how much everyone loved their blankets!
