Bauer Performance Sports Acquires Cascade Helmets

Bauer has agreed to acquire Cascade Helmets for $64M.

With this purchase Bauer has dramatically increased their market share in Lacrosse as Cascade is the leader in helmets and facial protection.  Cascade will be complimentary to Bauer’s existing Lacrosse brand, Maverik, who currently manufactures gloves, elbow pads, shoulder pads and sticks.

Cascade’s hockey helmet division with their patented helmet technologies will be included in the sale.  With their operations based in New York they are able to have a very short turnaround time for custom product.

Bauer Hockey, through StickerYou.com, has been providing consumers with the option to customize their helmets with vinyl stickers.  With their history of selling customized stick and goal product to the general public, perhaps a custom helmet will be soon added to the options on MyBauer.
