Delhi's Sportsfield Specialties lands big contract


A Delhi-based sporting good company has landed a large contract to manufacture products for the renowned Spalding brand.

The announcement was made last week that Sportsfield Specialties has reached an agreement to produce a variety of equipment for Spalding, everything from scoreboards to volleyball systems.
Sportsfield Specialties is one of the larger businesses in Delaware County, with about 50 employees.

The contract with Spalding will mean an expansion of the company, with the addition of about 30 new jobs over the next four years, according to President Wayne Oliver.

The agreement calls for Sportsfield to provide manufacturing, marketing, sales and customer service for Spalding products.

Sportsfield Specialties has primarily worked in the manufacturing of athletic field equipment such as football, soccer and field hockey goals, steeple chase systems, team benches and modular dugouts.
