Company History

Devant Company History

In 1976, the Sheppard family started Devant in the hallway of their home. They saw the need for high quality golf towels with low minimums and quick service. As the business grew, they moved into their first production facility, an old bus station. Twenty years ago, they constructed the current location in Monroe, North Carolina. Over the years it has grown to what is now a 48K square foot facility serving the golf industry.

Today, Devant is the largest custom golf towel provider in the US. While the product mix has grown and much has changed, Devant still adheres to the three founding principles: High Quality, Low Minimums and Outstanding Service.

The name Devant means first and foremost. This concept is woven into everything that we do. We practice the concept of continuous improvement every day and are proud to lead the industry in quality, service and innovation. 

Also part of the Devant family is Sir Christopher Hatton, a premier name in custom woven golf and sport towels. Sir Christopher Hatton features a palette of vibrant yarn colors and an innovative high definition weaving process, offering towels with a luxurious feel and crisp designs. 

Devant and Sir Christopher Hatton are proud to serve some of the most renowned tournaments such as the U.S. Open, Ryder Cup, PGA Championship, in addition to prestigious resorts, country clubs and corporate customers. It’s no secret that the quality of our products are the best in the world.
