Inside local Riddell plant: See what it takes to make country’s most popular football helmet

Page
It's a name that is synonymous with football. About sixty percent of the NFL and more than half of all college and high school teams use Riddell helmets made in Lorain County. At peak season, about 500 people can put together about 2,000 helmets a day at its new North Ridgeville plant. “We were able to start with a blank slate and redefine how we wanted this plant organized and how we wanted it to be laid out and that's helped tremendously," said plant general manager, Ben Marker.

Thousands attend open house at helmet maker Riddell

Page
Approximately 4,000 people – some waiting as long as 30 minutes to get inside – toured the new Riddell facility during a public open house of the football helmet maker’s new North Ridgeville home May 21. Riddell moved from Elyria into the 347,205-square-foot facility on Center Ridge Road a couple of months ago. North Ridgeville was able to woo the company in part because of a tax incentive package. The new plant, which took less than a year to complete, takes care of painting and polishing the helmets, many of which end up protecting NFL and college football players. The shell of the helmets are made in Twinsburg.

This 3D-Scanned Football Helmet Makes The Game Safer For Players

Page
Sports technology has come a long way since basketball players first donned high top converse and footballs were anything but synthetic. And while we’re all infatuated with the players on the courts and fields, we rarely take into consideration all of the advancements in shoes, balls, gear, turfs, refereeing and other elements which allow our favorite athletes to ascend to the upper echelon of their game. Consider the football helmet—perhaps the most critical protection piece for NFL players. From 2015 to 2016, rates of concussions were down only modestly, to 244 total concussions last year. How can we circumvent these regularly occurring injuries in such a contact-heavy sport? What’s missing in previous helmet editions that could bolster a decrease in these alarming concussion figures? In response to these questions, pioneering football sports tech firm Riddell has recently debuted its latest helmet technology dubbed Precision Fit, a process for creating bespoke helmets via state-of-the-art 3D-scanning techniques.
