Carhartt is not just about products, it’s a service model.

[00:05:00] “When you think about it, it’s less about product changes and more about the service model. At Carhartt, we do tailor our products to the specific needs of businesses in those markets”, says Chris Walker.

“Consequently, when we style the product around the industry, we look at the end-users, their jobs, and what they do daily. Our product team would talk to you about how much time they spend on job sites, observing and working with them as well as what they come into contact with, and what they do on the job site. We want to design the product to meet their demands, not only to facilitate their comfort, which is crucial, but also to make sure that it lasts longer”, he adds.

Having someone come in wearing dirty clothes is awful, isn’t it? 

[00:13:00] “So Ideally, you should have two or three extra sets so you can wash them one day while wearing them. Some companies even go so far as to buy a couple of sets but then allow the employee to buy more on their own. So if they want more gear, they can go buy it”, says Chris Walker.
