TIPPMANN CELEBRATES 25 YEARS IN PAINTBALL
Company to look back at quarter century of innovation and growth throughout 2011
Buffalo Grove, Ill (February 4, 2011) – It’s hard to believe, but Tippmann Sports is celebrating 25 years in paintball. The company, an industry leader since 1986, has a variety of special initiatives planned for 2011 as it looks back on a quarter century of innovation and growth. For starters, Tippmann is unveiling a 25th anniversary logo and tagline as well as launching new advertising and social media campaigns.
The new tagline – “Experience. Excellence.” clearly illustrates what has made Tippmann successful for the past 25 years. The company has set the standard for reliability, innovation and product support. Tippmann’s all-encompassing goal is the pursuit of excellence and to provide players of all skill levels with the ultimate paintball experience. The new tagline will be incorporated into a variety of materials throughout the year and will help support the company’s efforts to provide players with an enhanced paintball experience.
“As we celebrate 25 years in paintball, it’s been rewarding to look back at just how far Tippmann – and the paintball industry in general – have come since 1986,” said Denny Tippmann, Jr., senior vice president and chief technology officer for Tippmann Sports. “It’s also been interesting to look back at the many products Tippmann has introduced. Every marker – from the SMG 60 launched in 1986, to the X7 Phenom launched in 2010 – really offered something new and exciting that helped to enhance the paintball experience for players at all skill levels. Of course, the 98 Custom is also special to us. Launched in 1998, it’s one of the most popular and widely played markers in paintball history.”
“Milestones like this are important for any company and really should be celebrated,” said Howard Kosick, president and CEO for Tippmann Sports. “We view our 25th anniversary as an ideal opportunity to extend our sincere gratitude and appreciation to the retail customers and paintball players who have stood behind Tippmann and its products for so many years. Without their backing and loyalty, our success would not have been possible. We’re excited about continuing to offer players unmatched reliability, innovation and product support as we look down the road to the next 25 years and beyond.”
In addition to the new logo and tagline, a variety of marketing materials utilized by Tippmann this year will incorporate images provided by paintball players as a special “thank you” for the loyalty and enthusiasm Tippmann fans have demonstrated through the years. Anyone interested in sharing their perspective is encouraged to connect with Tippmann on Facebook. In addition to being able to upload their photos, videos and personal stories, followers will be provided with an entertaining look at some of the unique products and industry innovations the company has introduced since its founding.
