Sales Picking Up

from the Buffalo Business Journal,
Rechin, owner of C&T Hockey Products Ltd., saw gross sales fall at his Sanborn business by more than 50 percent, from about $650,000 in 2003 to about $250,000 last year. Employment was slashed from eight to four. The NHL cancelled its 2004-05 season when players and owners could not agree on a collective bargaining contract. With the dispute settled, the custom silk-screened hockey puck and stick business is on the rebound. Sales are expected to reach $450,000 this year. "The NHL strike last year killed us and we really had to restructure," Rechin said.
