    Back in the American Mid-West, we were delighted to have been involved in yet another project with our esteemed partners at Crouch Recreation. A family-owned business located in Omaha, Nebraska, Crouch Recreation is committed to providing safe, sustainable and high-quality, durable products to their community and surrounding areas.

    Having worked with Eric Crouch and his team on a number of prior occasions, we were once again brought in to help their team with an upcoming opportunity. Working closely with Dr. Logan Lightfoot, superintendent of the Anselmo-Merna Public School, the team at Crouch was tasked with providing a solution to replacing some outdated wooden bleachers in the school’s gymnasium.


    Operating an innovative campus that serves students from elementary school to high school, Dr. Lightfoot was in search of the ultimate combination of service and quality product to match his school’s prominence as one of the finest school districts in the state of Nebraska.

    Crouch Recreation was quick to have their team deployed to the school to set up the first of many on-site visits to assess the condition of the existing bleachers and to begin the process of designing a new seating structure. As with everything else in this wonderful school, the gymnasium seating was unique in design, featuring bleachers both on the main floor as well as perched upon the stage. With an undying school spirit and support for the school’s beloved Coyotes, seating was of utmost importance to Dr. Lightfoot who was steadfast in ensuring the right configuration was chosen.


    Shortly after the first preliminary meetings, the decision was made to award the project to Crouch Recreation and their installation specialists at Ad Screen Group. Teaming up to complete the perfect solution, our very own Kodiak 2400 retractable bleacher systems were selected as the bleacher of choice for the school’s gymnasium. Moving directly into the design phase, our team combined the striking and prominent school colours of red and black to surround the aisles of the bleacher seating. Following that, the completed bleacher system was shipped directly to the school in Merna, Nebraska where it was met by the team from Ad Screen Group.

    From there, the installation was performed both on time and on budget, providing a set of bleacher seats that truly reflect the history, quality and prowess of the Anselmo-Merna Public School.


    "We are a school district made up of two proud communities.  Our patrons are graduates, and take great pride in our school and facilities.  We knew it was time to replace our bleachers, and I was very careful to select the right manufacturer and installer for the job.  Like most small communities, we take pride in the particulars.  Crouch Recreation and Sport Systems provided exactly what we needed:  high quality bleachers, and exceptional customer service.  This was project was a big deal for our students and parents.  I have great confidence that these bleachers will be a fantastic addition to our gymnasium for decades to come."
