Having spent close to 40 years in the construction industry with both mechanical and structural backround, PolyGlide Synthteic Ice founder Jim Loughran began developing PolyGlide Ice while working as a Construction Project Manager in New York CIty.
"I worked my whole life in the construction industry and being a Hockey Dad in the Northeast, I would make an annual attempt each passing January to build an outdoor rink, praying for freezing weather that maybe lasted three weeks if I was lucky. After a few years, I got fed up and started researching alternative options using the right blend of polymer compunds and it just took off from there", said Loughran.
"After testing out other products on the market I was able to find the perfect formulation that offered optimum glide and was easy to maintain" added Loughran.
Since that time Loughran's company has continued to grow and recently was featured on ABC's Shark Tank (season 8, episode 11). "Being on Shark Tank was a great experience and helped me find out what I needed to do to take my company to the next level", said Loughran. "the feedback from the Sharks was invaluable and the exposure from being on the show has truly made me a believer in "The Power of Shark Tank!....What a great experience!
Loughran is currently working on many new developmental products that will be launched in the coming year.
