Swag Golf Acquires Industry-Leading Ecktron Performance (EP Headcovers)

CHICAGO, IL – Swag Golf today announced it has acquired Ecktron Performance (EP Headcovers), an industry leader in quality golf headcover manufacturing and embroidery. The acquisition of EP Headcovers will ensure Swag Golf remains one step ahead of the competition in their pursuit of producing the highest quality headcovers in all of golf.

“Our collectors have the most discerning eyes in the industry and demand premier products, so it was a no brainer for us to acquire the foremost company in the business and bring manufacturing in house,” said Nick Venson, founder and chief executive officer, Swag Golf. “Our quality will continue to be second to none as EP has been making our headcovers since our launch in 2018, and now they will have the ability to focus solely on Swag.”

Since 2013, Ecktron Performance has provided the highest quality headcovers in golf to retailers and consumers alike from their headquarters in Buford, GA. EP brings extensive manufacturing experience that continues to push boundaries, and its addition will further propel Swag into industry dominance.

“It was an easy commitment to make when deciding to work exclusively with Swag,” said Justin Eckard, president and chief executive officer, Ecktron Performance. “They are the most exciting brand in golf and will be for the foreseeable future. We look forward to advancing the headcover industry one cover at a time.”

Ecktron Performance will continue producing headcovers for select country clubs and accounts.
