If you were wondering about Under Armour-related activity out at Port Covington today, including a tent and banner proclaiming the area as the future home of the sports apparel brand, it's Armour Day, an annual event for employees.
The gathering typically brings together thousands of far-flung employees of the Locust Point-based sports apparel maker.
Under Armour founder Kevin Plank mentioned the event during the company's annual meeting last week. He said it's a time to reinforce the company's culture, one in which workers are encouraged to think like entrepreneurs but to act like teammates.
Under Armour is "the best place to work, bar none," he told shareholders at that April 29 meeting.
Plank also told shareholders that the growing company, which crossed the $3 billion sales mark last year, was outgrowing its space in Locust Point – the site of a former Procter & Gamble factory.
Plank has said he intends to create a new neighborhood on waterfront land he has bought in Port Covington. Plans call for a relocated headquarters for the company, along with shopping, restaurants, a distillery and horse stables.
