True temper acquires vh footwear

(Nov. 22, 2016) - True Temper Sports acquired hockey skate manufacturer, VH Footwear Inc., in late November. True Temper will continue to manufacture VH skates at its base of operations in Winnipeg, Manitoba. Both True and VH currently distribute their hockey product lines globally and they are used by elite-level players across the world.

"There is a need and an appetite for a new brand in the skate category, probably more so than any other time in the history of the hockey industry," said Jeremy Erspamer, President & CEO of True Temper Sports. "This should also be further evidence to hockey players worldwide, our valued retail partners, and the hockey industry as a whole of our continued commitment to enter new product categories with game-changing, performance-enhancing technology."
