W. Graeme Roustan, Executive Chairman of Roustan Capital and Roustan Hockey today announced its acquisition of McKenney, the custom original equipment manufacturer (OEM) of hockey and lacrosse protective gear based in the Scarborough district of Toronto in Ontario, Canada since 1996.
“Trevor McKenney has been a pioneer in the design, development and production of custom hockey and lacrosse gear since 1996, and I am thrilled that he and his team will now become an integral part of the Roustan Hockey team,” said Mr. Roustan.
Roustan Hockey acquired Heritage, the only OEM of hockey sticks in Canada in 2019, which has a legacy dating back to 1847. In 2021, Roustan Hockey moved its newly acquired “Hockey Stick Division” headed by its General Manager Bo Crawford from its 35,000 square foot, 100-year-old factory into a new 65,000 square foot, modern factory in Brantford, Ont.
With the addition of McKenney, Roustan Hockey has now added a “Protective Division,” which will be headed by Trevor McKenney as its General Manager and remain in its current location in Scarborough.
“Made in Canada is not a slogan but rather a strategic plan to reduce supply chain risks for our customers and brands while supporting Canadian manufacturing jobs and the Canadian economy,” said Mr. Roustan.
