We are very proud to have had the opportunity to spend a few days with our pal Petri Karvinen, Founder of the Wall Goalie Mask Company in Kihniö, Finland.
When it comes to understanding goalie mask innovation and fabrication, Petri is the “real deal”. For over 25 years now, the Handmade Wall Goalie Mask has earned the confidence of elite Goaltenders in Finland and around the world.
It was pretty cool to meet with some of the Finnish Goalies and Retailers that have supported the WALL Mask through the years, and here is our conclusion:
First, Petri Karvinen reeks of honour and integrity. You feel it from the goalies and the retailers the moment he steps in the locker room or their stores, and we would expect nothing less. Why?
Bottom line is this, if you can manufacture a product as critically sensitive to Goalies as a mask is, do it along side the giant competitors of Bauer and CCM and maintain a solid reputation in the Goalie community for over 25 years, that’s impressive. Period.
With that said, it is with great honour that we are announcing to the Goaltending Community that Jack and I and the rest of the Quik Innovative Hockey Team will be working along side our Pal Petri to bring the Finnish made Wall Goalie Mask to North America.
Our goal is to keep the manufacturing facility right where it belongs, down that long winding country road that leads to a little workshop that produces one of the best darn goalie masks we have ever seen!
We want all of our Goalie Pals across North America to know that, when you buy a wall goalie mask from www.mywallmask.com you can rest assured that you buying the original, authentic, made in Finland mask, and years of R&D that has gone into this great Goalie Mask.
We will keep you updated as we establish our officially recognized agents and partnership agreements in Canada and the USA.
