CCM Hockey Merging With Jackson Ultima And Atom
In a significant move involving hockey suppliers, Sport Maska, the Montreal-based owner of the CCM Hockey brand, has acquired Tournament Sports Marketing, the owner of the Jackson Ultima and Atom brands.
Tournament Sports Marketing, headquartered in Cambridge, Ontario, makes figure skating boots, blades and skates through its Jackson Ultima brand. The company also makes roller and in-line skates through its Atom Skates brand.
“This is a strategic acquisition that allows us to expand our portfolio to everyone interested in skating and we look forward to creating connections with everyone who wants to skate,” says Marrouane Nabih, CEO of Sport Maska. “I would like to thank Kim Bauer and his team for this opportunity and we look forward to continuing to innovate in hockey and figure skating with this new portfolio of premium and recreational skating products,”
“It was a difficult decision after over 35 years of building the business to a global leadership position,” adds Bauer, president of Tournament Sports Marketing. “However, in CCM I have secured an enterprise that shares my passion and vision for the Jackson and Atom brands. I am confident that CCM has the resources and leadership to bring Tournament Sports Marketing and its brands to the next level,”
