Klone Lab

Our Story

Not all companies are created equal and at KLONELAB, our DNA was structured to challenge that mission every day…

Located 30 miles from Boston in the small coastal town of Amesbury, Massachusetts, Klonelab was founded with one vision in mind, to be the leading, boutique, licensing and brand acquisition company in the sports and active youth culture space with a focus on footwear, sandals and accessories.

In January of 2009, the company signed a long term licensing agreement with New Balance Athletic to design, manufacture and distribute all open toe footwear. Additionally, after a successful launch in the sandal category, New Balance awarded Klonelab additional licenses for New Balance golf footwear and open toe footwear for Warrior Lacrosse.

In 2011, the company made their first acquisition when they purchased the IPATH Brand from Timberland. IPATH is a leading lifestyle footwear and apparel brand in the active youth culture space with a focus on Skateboarding, Snowboarding, BMX and Surfing.

Three short years later, KLONELAB has offices in Amesbury, San Diego and China and is considered one of New Balance’s top licensing partners. The company set out to build a platform that would allow it to successfully add new licensing partners as well as focus on further brand acquisition, and we are now in a position to do just that.

Today, the company has positioned itself as a leader in the licensing and brand building business and has built a successful full service platform that can cater to it’s future growth whether through new licensing partnerships or further brand acquisition.
