University of Findlay’s Award-Winning Koehler Fitness and Recreation Center
About the Facility
The University of Findlay was facing a dilemma. The Koehler Fitness and Recreation Center, built in 1999, was designed to be primarily an ice rink. The facility no longer met the needs of the University. Marty Terry, Vice President of Business Affairs at the University of Findlay explained, “we had decided to drop our Division I hockey program. We had a real lack of multi-purpose space for the student body. We feel we made the right decision as the students now have their own space outside of athletics.”
When it came down to choose a multi-purpose athletic floor, the University looked to a long-time partner for a solution. Terry comments, “we had worked with Kiefer and Mondo before on our indoor track facility. We were very comfortable with their quality and reputation. The Mondo product line is one that I would highly recommend.”
What the Customer Has to Say
In light of the Koehler Fitness and Recreation Center receiving the 2012 ASBA Indoor Multi-Purpose Facility of the Year, Terry says, “We are honored and proud to have been recognized by ASBA as the Indoor Multi-Purpose Project of the Year. We have conducted business with Kiefer for many years. Their attention to detail and quality of workmanship is second to none. I would highly recommend them to anyone who is considering an athletic surface.”
