Schutt Sports Reports Record Breaking Year in 2012
LITCHFIELD, Ill. - (BUSINESS WIRE) - Delivering more helmets than in any single year since it entered the
football helmet market nearly 30 years ago, Schutt Sports also reported
record profitability for 2012. All of this occurred at the same time the
company introduced yet another new helmet into the marketplace.
"It was a remarkable year, in many ways," said Robert Erb, President/CEO
of Schutt. "We built and shipped more helmets than in any other year in
our brand's 94 year history. We were able to sell that many helmets
without sacrificing profitability; in fact, our profitability in 2012
was the best in our history. If that's not enough, we also introduced
the best helmet we've ever made, the Vengeance DCT. The Vengeance has
been an unconditional success with our dealers and incredibly well
received by the market."
Since the company is privately held, it does not release the exact
number of helmets it builds and ships, nor does it publicize specific
financial information. Nevertheless, the company is standing on solid
ground, according to Rollen Jones, CFO of Schutt.
