Lancaster, PA (July 10, 2014) – ECORE International, a company that transforms reclaimed waste into unique performance surfacing, is proud to announce the launch of its new sports surfacing brand, ECORE Athletic. This product line was developed in response to the growing imbalance between what an athlete is capable of and the related risk of injury. ECORE Athletic products bring a dynamic layer of suspension into sports surfacing that absorbs excessive shock instead of an athlete’s body. The product offering includes everything from base layers for competitive courts, tracks, and turf fields to engineered solutions for a myriad of applications. This includes strength and conditioning, speed and agility, as well as related common areas in a wide range of facilities, where athletes are training and competing. 

“At ECORE Athletic, we are all about the athlete,” said Bo Barber, Vice President of Sales and Marketing with ECORE. “The surfacing we engineer allows them to do what they love for longer. The risk of injury in sports today at all ages and skill levels has become a serious challenge. Head impact and lower body stress-related injuries can be mitigated by investing in better surfaces. That’s where we come in! Powerful sports cars demand enhanced suspension systems to perform. Athletes should demand the same.”

ECORE has a long history of vertically integrated capabilities in composition rubber.  With its recently patented itstru technology, ECORE can now create dual durometer systems that result in the next generation of surfaces for the next generation of athletes. 

ECORE Athletic is owned and manufactured in the U.S.A. and is easy to install and maintain. To learn more about ECORE Athletic, visit: http://www. ecoreathletic.com
