About Us

Our Story

For over 20 years, we have worked tirelessly to build a company whose members care just as much about your garments as you do. Honesty, hard work, and integrity are at the core of every Global Trim product. You see, we believe that an exceptional trim piece can take a beautiful garment and make it extraordinary. What better way to make your mark on your pieces than with trim that is stylish and crafted to perfection? When contractors purchase from Global Trim, our customers rest assured they will only receive apparel that is 100% authentic and brand approved.

Over 5o years ago, a 20 year old man set out from snowy Duluth, Minnesota on his quest to live the “California dream”. With only a high school education, he took a job as a shoe salesman to make ends meet. In 1964, a customer shared with the young man that he was in the trim industry. At first, the idea of building a business selling buttons and tags seemed laughable, but not long after, the young man was knee deep in the industry and loving every minute of it. That young man was Hersh Cherson, founder and CEO of Global Trim. The son of European immigrants, Hersh built Global Trim from the ground up, founded on the premise that when you provide exceptional service, your customers appreciate it. It is this philosophy that has helped us build long-standing relationships with our clients.

Since 1995, our team at Global Trim has mastered the art of creating unique trim pieces for clients all over the world. Not only do we provide global garment manufacturers with exceptional trim products, we back our products with service that is second to none in the industry. Companies all over the world trust Global Trim, we know you will too.
