Recognition Express franchise helps ice hockey champions

As the winter Olympics progress in Canada in full swing, UK business Recognition Express is helping ice hockey teams with promotional clothing and merchandise. After the popular franchise rescued Invicta Dynamos, Division One leaders at the start of the season Recognition Express, Kent is now producing team training hoodies and other goods for the ice hockey club.

Recognition Express has also designed the youth teams’ new 2010 jerseys. Owners of the franchise, Paul Slack and Steve Randerson managed to save the Dynamos when their new strip was not yet ready for the English National Hockey League Division 1 opening. Playing the match without numbers on their jersey would result in an automatic 5-0 defeat forfeit.

Paul and Steve own a production facility in Rochester which allows them to personalise clothing and promotional items on the premise. Within 24 hours of a call from Martin Ryder, general manager of the Dynamos, the team was ready with numbered practice jerseys. The Dynamos won the match against the Oxford Stars 11-3.

Steve said that they knew it was a big challenge, but they also understood the seriousness of the situation for the team if they got penalised. So they had all their employees working relentlessly to meet the deadline. Martin Ryder said that he and the team are very impressed with the franchise’s willingness to get the jerseys ready and work ethic. For this reason, they have given Recognition Express more business as they are sure their production will not let the team down.
