What drives Us to be ahead?
New Bedford Heritage: It’s in the Water & Soil! Farmers will tell you that the best tasting crops owe it to the water and soil. They discount, or perhaps don’t even realize, the know-how and work ethic that they inherited from those before them.

The crew at ahead is very similar. Hard work comes naturally to our staff as a result of the industries that their New Bedford ancestors pioneered. Today, the city’s thriving arts community helps to drive creativity within ahead's walls.

Pride & Craftsmanship: Sewn into the City
Every ahead order passes through several skilled hands before leaving the building: Designers; Embroidery artisans; Thread specialists; Laser cutters; Seamstresses... and over 40 full-time artists! We owe our collective skill sets, and therefore our success, in large part to our New Bedford heritage.
