Fernando Padilla

Founder & President

After more than 22 years in the garment manufacturing & embroidery equipment industry, Fernando Padilla and Stitch City Industries have been recognized as a global innovator and leader in his field. He graduated with a Bachelor of Arts degree in Electronic Engineering Technology from ITT Technical Institute of Technology in 1988 & continued on to Cal State Fullerton. Fernando held key positions with Barudan America in Greensboro NC, Tajima West in Los Angeles CA & Hirsch International in Hauppauge NY – all embroidery equipment manufacturers and distributors.

1999 when the North American FreeTrade Act changed the manufacturing landscape in the USA, Fernando formed Stitch City Industries, an international export company of preowned embroidery machines. Shortly thereafter he cemented a distribution relationship with Brother International, a global presence of sewing and embroidery equipment.

In 2005 Brother International unveiled direct to garment printers, a new exciting t-shirt printing platform. Padilla recognized the new emerging “Print On Demand” manufacturing environment & used his years of technology expertise to his advantage with this creative technology.

“Printing onto t-shirts is a given with these new printers” commented Padilla. “We needed to differentiate ourselves by thinking beyond this simple substrate and began the sketching, tweaking and long hours of development”.

As a result Padilla is now recognized as an innovator of garment printing technology by expanding the capabilities. His patented inventions include footwear, headwear, mammoth and numerous other applications for the Brother Garment GT782 and GT541 printers – all industry firsts!
