Custom Roto-Mold scores Hat Trick with NHL All-Star Games
Locally-Made Products Showcased at National Venue
BENSON, MINNESOTA – Custom Roto-Mold, LLC. (CRM), an international manufacturer headquartered in Benson, Minnesota, is part of hockey history as the manufacturer of the hockey dasher boards used at the 2017 NHL-National Hockey League’s All-Star Games Fan Fair events. The portable resin hockey boards were made at the Benson plant on Minnesota Highway 12 and installed at the Convention Center in Los Angeles for this year’s All-Star Weekend on January 27-29.
“On a regular basis, employees at CRM are making products for world class entertainment venues,” says Chris Dahlman, director of business development at CRM. “We are really pleased that the Sport Resource Group is letting us share that their customer is the NHL.”
Due to privacy requirements in contracts, oftentimes, CRM cannot share where its products are going. With the NHL dasher boards, CRM’S customer Sport Resource Group of Minneapolis gave approval. The portable, extremely durable walls are made from rotationally-molded plastic. Following the All-Star games, a high school in Ohio is getting the multi-use dasher boards, where they will be used for lacrosse.
“It’s a very exciting opportunity for Custom Roto-Mold and Sports Resource Group to see our product used on a national stage such as the NHL All-Star Games,” says Corey Claussen, president of Custom Roto-Mold. “As an avid hockey fan and skater, it’s a nice dream come true to make a product used for one of my favorite past times, as well as showcase CRM’s work on a national stage.”
For Claussen, the NHL dasher boards give the CRM team and local community a hat trick. The ice rink operated by the City of Benson features the same hockey dasherboards as those used at the All-Star Games. “Our youth and community get to see what we do every day for companies around the world when they visit the city’s rink.” CRM worked with the City and Sports Resource Group to secure them at a low cost and help with their installation in 2015. During the spring and summer months, Benson’s ice rink is converted to roller hockey for year-round accessibility.
