I own Junkyard Athletic, a custom manufacturer of dye-sublimated goods, including custom jerseys, SubliTWILL logos + name plates + numbers,banners, trade show booths, and much more.
If you have an inquiry on the products we sell, please email me at info at junkyardathletic dot com. We do not check our messenger box here on MSH often and we conduct any/all business off of this site.
So, you want to know about me personally eh?
I've been playing hockey since 1975 and in the hockey + skating business since December 1990.
I have seen all sides of the hockey business. I've worked as a rink manager, shop salesman, store manager, hockey league owner/manager, hockey camp/school coordinator, hockey coach, Corporate Manufacturers Retail/Pro Sales Rep, Corporate Manufacturers Sales Manager, Product Designer, Product Manager, Regional Research & Development Coordinator, Independent Manufacturers Rep/Owner of Rep Agency, and finally, business owner.
I've had the opportunity of meeting the greatest athletes in all of sport, professional hockey players. I've worked for a hockey manufacturer wearing many different hats. Unfortunately, I found out how antiquated the industry is, and how it isn't run with business sense, but straight from the heart.
I doubt that these companies will ever get it right, so, I've moved on to do my own thing and something I love. Sure, days can be tough, however, there are far worse things out there, such as being unemployed, or, working a job that I absolutely hate.
My business is challenging and I learn something new every day; I wouldn't trade it for the world!
