Working closely with other women-owned and diverse businesses is one of The Spearhead Group’s core values. By partnering with best-in-class innovators and clients, Spearhead can help to achieve success for customers’ passions and product developments.
The Spearhead Group is proud to support woman-owned business, Locker Lifestyle. Founded by Kat Samardzija in 2016, after realizing that she needed to find a new and innovative way to store her valuables while playing college tennis, the Wrist Locker™ was born. Working together with her mom and a talented seamstress, Kat drew up the plans for the Wrist Locker design and began selling. The Wrist Locker is a Wrist Wallet made to hold your valuables. It is the length of an ID and can fit cash, keys, ID, and even fits a phone, up to an iPhone 10+.
“Without the help and resources of the strong women in my life, my mother and aunt, I would never have been able to start the Locker Lifestyle. They have their own business together and continuing the legacy of a women-owned business is very fulfilling,” said Kat.
In 2019, Kat began working together with The Spearhead Group to be able to find 100% recyclable packing to help improve sustainability practices, costs and find new, innovative solutions for prototyping products to increase the production line. One element that Kat works with The Spearhead Group on is having help in sourcing fabric that is machine-washable and dry-wicking.
“Working with another women-owned business means we are empowering and helping each other scale in our own ways,” said Kat. “The Spearhead Group has been more than a manufacturing partner. We have continued to work together on sourcing, production, product development & so much more. It was a blessing to have met their co-founder just a few short years ago!”
“I met Kat at the 2019 WBENC National Conference and immediately was inspired by the story and passion behind her business,” said Vianney Becerril, The Spearhead Group Senior Product Development Manager. “We offered to collaborate and to develop ways to streamline the Wrist Locker’s Supply Chain. While working together, we have also been able to assist with the development of new product lines and packaging solutions. It has been very gratifying to work with a women-owned company that is so passionate about similar core values, like innovation and sustainability.”
The Spearhead Group looks forward to working with more young entrepreneurs and women-owned businesses like Locker Lifestyle. Reach out to find out how we can work together.
