STX Takes Up Hockey

The best part about these apart from their own awesomeness, of course.

STX has long been established as a major brand in lacrosse and field hockey. The company also makes golf equipment. And now the Baltimore-based manufacturer is getting into hockey, with their own padding and sticks.

While some companies (like Reebok) are currently pulling back on their team sports offerings, STX seems to be taking a different tack, by expanding their team sports operation. Since STX has long focused on stick and padding technology, while Reebok focused on shoes, this move does seem to make sense.

STX will expand their Baltimore offices and shipping location, and their distribution center will remain where it is currently located, at 1500 Bush Street, in Baltimore. STX has brought on Matt Hoppe, Rocco Amonte, and Sam Lacey to run the hockey division, and is currently hiring to fill out the division.

  • WHYYYYYYY wouldn’t they get back into box? They used to make the equipment – I’ve got STX goalie uppers. I think they still make arm and maybe the kidney pads. But if Reebok won’t push NLL that leaves Boddam sort of swinging in the breeze since Boddam Lacrosse was bought by Reebok.

    Eagle is a hockey manufacturer getting back into the boxlax game.
