BOUND FOR SUCCESS FROM THE BEGINNING

As anyone in the industry will tell you, a great shirt begins with great fiber. The same holds true for WGCM—the strength and vision of the founding partners has created the basis from which repeated success has grown.

In February, 2002 several Bakerseld area cotton industry professionals got together with the goal of better meeting the needs of a burgeoning cotton market. As a result, White Gold Association Inc. (WGA) was formed. From the beginning, owners Mark Costa and Craig Tobin built a record of providing innovative, flexible programs that address the needs and desires of cotton growers from California to the southeastern United States. For example, one program, which guarantees minimum price contracts for Upland and Pima varieties, has consistently met with particular success. In 2008, WGA was reformed as White Gold Cotton Marketing LLC (WGCM) with Mark Costa as the sole owner.
