Ebonite International has announced an alliance with Jayhawk Bowling Supply to manufacture, market and sell Ebonite’s PowerHouse brand of pro shop heavy equipment — mills, drills, cabinet spinners, resurfacing machines, etc.
With this partnership, Jayhawk will assume technical assistance for all existing PowerHouse heavy equipment products, and has the rights to use the PowerHouse name for future heavy equipment products. The traditional non-heavy PowerHouse-branded equipment will still be managed through Ebonite International, overseen by Mike Stewart, Product Manager, Non-Ball Categories.
“We recognize PowerHouse as a leader and a perfect complement to our Jayhawk branded products,” said John Hardman, President of Jayhawk. “With the power of Ebonite International’s stable of brands and the strong history of the quality and performance of the PowerHouse products, we couldn’t be more excited about this agreement.
“Russ Wilson and our crew at Jayhawk look forward to combining these new products into our existing portfolio of products and services to provide the best pro shop support in the industry,” he added.
Randy Schickert, CEO of Ebonite International said, “Our core focus is to continue to produce the best bowling products possible. By partnering with a quality company like Jayhawk, we are assured the PowerHouse brand will continue to be a valuable brand in our portfolio as we are ‘building the best brands in bowling.’ Jayhawk is the best in the industry at bowling’s heavy equipment, and having their knowledge, talent, sales force and craftsmanship, it is a perfect partnership.”
