Augusta Sportswear Brands (ASB) and Founder Sport Group (FSG) announced the combined company’s new corporate identity, Momentec Brands, and tagline “Outfitting Moments That Matter.”

ASB and FSG were acquired by investment firm Platinum Equity in January.

Momentec Brands is a supplier of team uniforms, off-field performance wear, and fan apparel tailored for the youth and recreational sports markets.

Momentec Brands stated it will continue its “unwavering commitment to provide its customers superior service by maximizing the strength of the two organizations in customer care, distribution, and the critical day-to-day ‘count on us’ execution.” And that its core objective is to “become your easiest partner to buy from, breaking down complexity and making designing and buying even custom uniforms a simple and fun experience.”

FSG CEO John Anton will serve as CEO of Momentec Brands and ASB CEO David Elliott will serve as vice chairman of the company.

“We are excited to announce the rebranding of the combined company as Momentec Brands. Momentec represents a bold step forward in our journey towards redefining the uniform and sportswear industry while delivering exceptional service for our customers,” said Anton. “Our mission is to fuel our customers and partners with innovative solutions, delivering unparalleled speed, ease, and value to outfit the moments that matter.”

The name Momentec is said to pay homage to the rich traditions and legacies of both ASB and FSG with a nod to the momentum these companies created in the marketplace over the years. The name also embraces a spirit of innovation as the company strives to inject cutting-edge technology into all aspects of the design and ordering process to simplify the customer experience.

“I am grateful to have served as CEO of ASB for the past eight years,” commented Elliott. “As I transition into the role of vice chairman, I am filled with gratitude for the remarkable journey we’ve undertaken at ASB. It has been an honor to serve as CEO, and I am excited to continue contributing to Momentec’s success in this new capacity. I look forward to continuing to support John and the executive leadership team as Vice Chairman, building on the strong Momentec Brands foundation.”
