Mazon was started on the premise of ‘what if’. What if you could add fresh ideas to traditional hockey sports equipment that had changed little in the previous fifty years? After all, technology was being deployed in tennis racquet design and golf club design to great effect – so why not hockey?
That someone was Mazon Hockey. Mazon took a new approach – a bold approach based on innovation. Mazon developed the benchmarks for other manufacturers to follow. And it all came from fresh thinking with a heavy emphasis on the design process underpinned by R & D (both in manufacture and more importantly) by employing the best players in the world to test drive our prototypes in real situations. Thus only the best and most thoroughly tested hockey equipment created was introduced into the market to set the benchmarks for others to follow. No mean feat for a small Australian company.
This was risky business. R & D was (and is) expensive. Fibre glass hockey sticks had been introduced into the game by another international manufacturer back in the early 1970s, but didn’t last a season due to lack of reliability. Such is the importance of R & D supported by quality assurance testing.
Mazon has a dedicated design team and a separate R & D department who test all product and then get our team of international players to apply their stringent demands to further refine the product. Once approved, it’s then opened to many player/testers to guarantee total input across the spectrum. Then and only then, is it released as a commercial product.
At Mazon innovation never stops. We are at the front of the pack and want to remain there.
We want our players taking the best possible equipment into the 2012 Olympic Games and know that the equipment will bring out their best, and your best.
