Nanaimo man takes hockey stick repair to new level

Rob Lowes has recently become the newest franchisee for Integral Hockey Stick Repair, servicing Nanaimo and surrounding area.

NANAIMO – From the hub comes word mid-Island businessman Rob Lowes has recently become the newest franchisee for Integral Hockey Stick Repair, servicing Nanaimo and surrounding area. Lowes and his wife, Mary, have joined together in their newest venture, to provide the latest in hockey stick repair technology for teams, parents, and players.

According to Lowes’, the propriety repair process was developed by the founder of Integral Hockey, Randy Langille from Port Alberni, in response to a need he saw in the public/professional domain for costly stick replacement alternatives.

“Until now, sending broken hockey sticks in for repair meant dealing with substantial loss in stick flexibility – typically affecting several inches on either side of the break, along with a considerable increase in stick weight. Taking broken sticks and repairing them utilizing actual aerospace technology (at a price point substantially less than purchasing a new stick), Integral Hockey is able to return the stick to its owner with almost no noticeable change in respect to weight, flex, kick-point and balance.”

According to a recent press release, Integral Hockey’s goal “is to provide everyone involved within the dynamic hockey community, whether it be teams, individual players, parents, equipment managers, etc., from a local to eventually, international level, not only a trusted source in affordable stick repair, but in addition, offer superior quality and workmanship utilizing composite aerospace technology. In Langille’s own words, “We have taken a very real problem, solved it with the most high-tech solution on the market, and we’re delivering it at a price that will work for everyone. Something we are very proud of.”

In addition, Integral Hockey is doing their part in promoting a ‘Green’ agenda. They’ve implemented a system taking broken sticks that are beyond repair, sending them to be ground into carbon fibre powder which can then be reused to manufacture other products, thereby reducing the carbon footprint from composite sticks that typically end up in a landfill. Integral Hockey considers themselves to be ‘the ultimate Canadian recycling business.’
