Bill Bowerman and Phil Knight founded Nike on January 25, 1964 as “Blue Ribbon Sports.” However, it didn’t officially become “Nike, Inc.,” until May 30, 1978.
The first production site of Nike was in Japan. It began when Phillip Knights made a cold-call to Onitsuka Co. in Japan trying to convince the manufacturer of Tiger shoes to make him a distributor of the Tiger shoes in the US. But instead, when the first dozen shoes had arrived, Knights sent them to Bowerman, a track and field coach at the University of Oregon who previously attempted to establish a footwear but was ignored by the manufacturers, impressed, Bowerman offered Knight to become his partner and give his idea’s to Tiger.
Sweatshops are either factories or workshops where workers in LEDCs work under poor, unhealthy and unhygienic conditions to produce clothing.
The Nike World Head Office is located in One Bowerman DriveBeaverton, which is in the US.
But recently, after Nike has grabbed attention from press, media, human rights committee’s they have enforced additional changes. Indonesian workers can now receive free health care, meals and increase in their wages.
Changing their products is not the only thing Nike has been successful at doing speedily as their speed at news reporting and advertising their newest products is quiet remarkable.
