Mercian is hockey, it’s what we do, we have been testing, shaping and innovating since 1974. Following our intuition and our instinct. Bringing technology and insight together to make a difference. Enjoy viewing the elements of our extensive ranges, feel free to drop us a line if you have any questions
The brand was started in the UK in 1974, so over nearly 50 years we have been developing, designing and sourcing products from across the world. We pride ourselves that people from the Mercian ‘team’ have actually been visiting factories and production facilities across the globe on a regular basis to ensure that our equipment comes from high-quality sources, using the best materials with recognised levels of employee / worker support.
This has given us relationships and friendships with many of the suppliers in the most widely recognised of hockey equipment hot-spots, Jalandhar in India and Sialkot in Pakistan. It’s something we have always believed in, the power of relationships, people working with people and those long-term associations give us confidence in the quality control that relates to the products that we bring to market. The constant visits to factories also means that the quality of the raw materials is monitored and regulated so we can combine exceptional workmanship with superb materials to create extremely high quality equipment.
With customers in over 30 different countries we consult with our business partners, sponsored athletes, friends and the wider hockey family across global markets to create ranges of products that can be used at every level of the game in any country. All our products conform to FIH regulations and with our owner and Managing Director – Simon Mason – being an executive board member of the European Hockey Federation and a previous equipment panel member of the FIH it means we have up to date technical information to ensure that our products are as good as they can be.
Finally, we believe in the value of service, our retail partners across the world work with us to bring our products to you in all the countries that we work in. They are listed on our retailers page, so if you don’t know where your nearest Mercian outlet is, then please look it up.
