Lower Employee Turnover than Industry Average
We at CoverSports trace our roots back to D.C. Humphrys, a company founded in 1874 to manufacture covers for Conestoga wagons. We are one of the oldest continuously manufacturing companies in Philadelphia, owned and managed by six generations of two families over our almost 150 year history. While our product line has evolved into athletic textiles and printing, we continue to provide the “old-fashioned” customer service that has kept us in business for a century and a half.
Family Run for 3 Generations
CoverSports is a family owned and operated company. Founded in Philadelphia by Robert A. Humphrys in 1874, the company was run by the Humphrys family until 1948.
Made in Philly
75% of CoverSports staff live in the Philadelphia city limits. Just like the city we call home, our staff is a diverse blend of cultures and backgrounds. Most of us have grown up around here. Many are even the second or third generation in their family working at CoverSports. But we also employ many first generation Americans; people who found in Philadelphia the opportunity they sought and have since settled.
One of the things we are most proud of here is our low turnover rate. We think it says a lot about our company and the people who comprise it that we consistently show less than half the national manufacturing industry average rate of employee turnover. In the end, this benefits our customers, who receive products made by craftsmen with long experience plying their trade.

CoverSports is a long-surviving textile manufacturer in West Philly. We don't have bean bag chairs, arcade games, or a chic cafeteria on our campus. But we like to think we nail the fundamentals that make a company attractive to employees for the long haul.
