Rogers Takes the Ice at PyeongChang Olympics

Posted by Susan Reed on Wednesday, February 14th, 2018 | No Comments »

Chances are you’ve tuned into the 2018 Olympic Winter Games over the course of the last few days. You may be surprised to learn that, in addition to the athletes, cheering fans, and news crews, Rogers Corporation has a presence at the Games.  

PORON® Comfort polyurethane, our breathable and flexible cushioning material that delivers long-lasting and flexible cushioning to a wide range of products, is found in the insole of Harlick Skating Boots. Commonly viewed as a legend in the skating world, Harlick Boots are renowned for their quality and construction.

Here’s a recent note from Harlick:

Just thought you would like to know that your product was used to handcraft a Harlick custom skating boot for skaters that will be skating on Olympic ice. All of us at Harlick would like to thank you for your high quality product that is used. Without our suppliers Harlick wouldn’t be able to produce such a beautiful skating boot.

Harlick boots are all handcrafted, since 1933, in our small factory in California with a total of 10 employees. Our sons are fourth generation keeping the craft and all the old machines running. We say our job is sometimes messy and grinding but the end result is a masterpiece and the sport of ice skating is beautiful and inspiring!

Thank you and we look forward to many more orders with you!

Thank you, Harlick, and best of luck to all the competitors!
