Sportex Cooperates with MCSO Investigation

At approximately 12:30pm today, our manufacturing facility in Tempe, Arizona was served a search warrant by the Maricopa County Sherriff’s Office (MCSO) who arrested twenty-three workers on identity theft charges, and four workers on outstanding warrants.  Local News reports have mislabeled the search as “a company accused of hiring workers illegally”.  Sportex Apparel follows the law in regards to its hiring practices, and every employee is E-Verified prior to their employment.

Prior to exiting some four hours later, the MCSO stated that the ownership and management of Sportex Apparel was found to be fully cooperative with the MCSO during their search of the facility, and stated that at this time the investigation is of an individual basis, and the company records reviewed were found to be in compliance with appropriate hiring practices, and that the company is not under any current investigation based on their hiring practices, stressing that this was an investigation involving individual identity theft.

The ownership and management will continue to provide whatever assistance the MCSO asks of them, but at this time have been advised that pending further investigation, their involvement in the matters regarding the twenty-seven arrests made today for identity theft and the outstanding warrants has ended.

On a personal note, we all are deeply saddened by the events today, and vow to become a better company for it, keeping the Sportex Brand Made in the USA, and proud of that fact.  Sportex Apparel will continue its normal operations, and any questions regarding this matter can be directed to ownership.

Sportex Barbecue

With the beautiful temperatures that we’ve had lately can you blame us for doing another barbecue already?  There’s nothing like Fish taco’s & fresh Ceviche on a warm day with a cool breeze.  Thanks to Larry and Estella for their recipes and everyone that helped out in the kitchen with all the prep work.  Of course the delivery drivers couldnt help but join in on a free, delicious meal yet again.  So remember friends, if you’re planning on making a visit, do it on a friday, you may get some free barbecue…

Sportex Barbecue

Last Friday we all got together for lunch and had a nice Barbecue out in the warm sun to kick off the beginning of Spring here in Arizona. The wonderful aroma was carried around the city block as smoke filled the air, and soon we were joined by a few Deliver Drivers that couldn’t resist. We ate some burgers, had some drinks, a few laughs & got back to doing what we do best. A full belly makes for a happy employee. Here are some of the pictures, we hope everyone who came out enjoyed it and we look forward to doing more in the future.

Burgers for Everyone
