Lake Placid, N.Y. (August 26, 2021) – USA Bobsled/Skeleton (USABS) is proud to announce that Erickson Metals Corporation has signed as an Official Supplier to the team through June 2024. Erickson Metals Corporation is an international supplier of quality aluminum products and a recognized leader in a demanding industry. Most recently, Erickson Metals Corporation has provided aluminum for building new crates that will be used to ship the team’s sleds around the world. 

“You can’t buy bobsled or skeleton parts in a hardware store, so we need our sleds to show up to a venue in race ready condition,” said USA Bobsled Driving Coach Brian Shimer. “That means we need our crates to protect our equipment as they travel long distances, and we rely on the aluminum provided by Erickson Metals Corporation to build the strongest crates.”

To maintain their competitive advantage in today’s world market, Erickson Metals Corporation provides extraordinary service and high quality material. Erickson Metals Corporation facilities are “The Aluminum Specialists” providing processing and distribution solutions with a “Whatever It Takes” attitude.

“We are thrilled to continue our partnership with the USA Bobsled/Skeleton team to help support the strength and skill of these incredible athletes,” said Robert Stiles, Chief Operations Officer of Erickson Metals. “All of us at Erickson Metals are proud of our involvement and we will be watching closely this winter!”
