“Making it in Maine” piece about the CM Almy company, one of the country’s largest producers of clerical vestments and liturgical goods. The company, which was founded in 1892 as a New York tailor shop factory, has a factory in Pittsfield that employs about 80 people. The company’s product line has changed with changes in the religious landscape. For example, women’s clerical blouses make up about a quarter of the company’s shirt sales, while 35 years ago, they carried no women’s apparel at all.
