WELCOME TO THE WORLD OF T.H.W. THE HOCKEY WHOLESALERS GMBH
1991 - With the founding of T.H.W. The Hockey Wholesalers GmbH, the Hamburg born Christian Cohrs, a longtime hockey player of the Harvestehuder THC, turns his hobby into a career.
The first successes are rapidly visible: after acquiring the exclusive distribution rights for the world’s first foam legguards and kickers from the English brands Mercian and Slazenger, the Pakistani brand MALIK also joined the growing T.H.W. team.
With the winning combination of Mercian, Slazenger and MALIK, the Hamburg based T.H.W. has transformed themselves into one of the leading hockey wholesalers in Germany in a short period of time.
Those who have proven themselves in their homeland must move on towards international terrain: in 1993 T.H.W. obtained the MALIK distribution rights for Switzerland, Austria and France, in 1998 for Belgium and the Netherlands.
What is a team without an amazing goalie? In 2003 T.H.W. teamed up with the world leading goalie equipment manufacturer OBO (based in New Zealand) and secures the exclusive distribution rights for several countries.
The next big deal: T.H.W. strengthens its lineup with the addition of the exclusive distribution rights for hockey products of the top brand adidas for Germany, Austria and Switzerland in 2006. In the summer of 2007 Benelux, France and Eastern Europe were added to the squad, later several Asian countries such as China, India, Korea and Malaysia.
Today, we distribute hockey products around the globe with a team of 15 employees.
