NORTHFIELD, Vt.— Darn Tough Vermont, American manufacturer of the only premium, performance socks with an unconditional lifetime guarantee, reports that Q3 2013 sales and profitability smashed the previous marks for the third quarter in its, and parent company Cabot Hosiery’s, 35-year history. Year to date topline growth was up 88% versus the corresponding period in 2012, a highly successful year that itself saw revenue up 54% over 2011, while Q3 was up 73% compared to the same period last year.

“We are extremely proud to continue this level of growth in an intensely competitive category, and to do so making great socks right here in Northfield, Vermont,” said Ric Cabot, president and CEO of Darn Tough Vermont. “We continue to reinvest in our company, purchasing 10 more of the latest generation seamless knitting machines in the third quarter alone, and are on track to close out 2013 with exceptional performance on both the top and bottom lines. This wouldn’t be possible without the hard work of our most important asset, our people. From the manufacturing floor to the sales folks on the road, their hard work and dedication is what gives us a tremendous advantage for continued success.”

A strong showing from the Run/Bike and Hike/Trek lines has fueled the company’s third quarter growth, including the success of the Light Cushion socks in both. Darn Tough has expanded its Light Cushion collection, as it is now available in Run/Bike, Hike/Trek and Women’s Lifestyle. As we head into the winter season the Ski/Ride collection continues to emerge as a customer favorite, highlighted by the new F5 and Edelweiss models.
