Sport Maska Inc., the Montreal-based owner of the CCM Hockey brand, announced the acquisition of Tournament Sports Marketing, Inc., the owner of the Jackson Ultima and Atom brands.

Headquartered in Cambridge, Ontario, Tournament Sports Marketing makes figure skating boots, blades and skates through its Jackson Ultima brand. Tournament Sports Marketing also makes roller and in-line skates through its Atom Skates brand.

“This is a strategic acquisition that allows us to expand our portfolio to everyone interested in skating, and we look forward to creating connections with everyone who wants to skate. I would like to thank Kim Bauer and his team for this opportunity, and we look forward to continuing to innovate in hockey and figure skating with this new portfolio of premium and recreational skating products,” said Marrouane Nabih, CEO, Sport Maska.

“I am pleased to announce the sale of Tournament Sports Marketing. It was a difficult decision after over 35 years of building the business to a global leadership position. However, in CCM, I have secured an Enterprise that shares my passion and vision for the Jackson and Atom brands. I am confident that CCM has the resources and leadership to bring Tournament Sports Marketing and its brands to the next level,” said Kim Bauer, president, Tournament Sports Marketing.
