Devo Plastic "Energy Dome" Hats at 2010 Olympics
On February 22nd, 2010 , the 1980's Music Group "Devo" performed before enthusiastic fans at Whistler Park in Vancouver, Canada. Devo was best known in the 80's for playing "new wave" music, including the hit "Whip It". They were also well known for their stage costumes which included bright yellow suits and red "Energy Dome" plastic hats.
As part of the 2010 Winter Olympic Games in Vancouver Canada, Devo played a concert and performed many of their songs. In the spirit of the Olympic games, the musical group updated their stage costumes to include silver suits and "Olympic blue" Energy Dome plastic hats.
In late January, Spencer Industries Inc. in Dale, Indiana was contracted to tool up and manufacture 3,500 of the blue plastic Energy Dome hats within a 12 day time frame. The custom blue plastic Energy Domes were manufactured and shipped to Vancouver to support the special 2010 Olympic event.
Our employees here at Spencer Industries had fun forming the Plastic Energy Domes!
I think we all got the "Devo Fever" !
That is what keeps our jobs interesting here at Spencer. We are a Custom Thermoformer, and this makes us unique! Draw it up.... Send it in.... Work with our Engineers.... , and we will provide you with a very nice product! Please keep in mind that we like to run large volume jobs.
We do not sell the individual hats. They may be purchased on the Devo Website.
Plastic Product Made in the USA
We can proudly say this product was made in the USA! The blue plastic sheet was extruded here in Dale, Indiana. This Plastic Sheet was then thermoformed using a tool that was fabricated by one of our vendors here in the United States. We assembled the foam inserts inside the plastic hats, and packaged them for shippment. (And it looks like they had fun doing it!)
We manufactured this item from start to finish in the same building! This is one of our unique offerings as a Thermoforming Manufacturer. There are very few Thermoformers that can Extrude, Form, and Assemble in the same facility! This allows us to meet short leadtime demands, and order quantity changes such this one for the Olympics. This unique ability also greatly reduces the leadtime and cost to produce plastic products.
