Hilti, Inc. is the official tool provider of the Texas Rangers. The goal of the partnership is to use the power of Hilti’s innovative products, services and software to support the construction of Globe Life Field, the future home of the Texas Rangers.
The two-year agreement includes title sponsorship of the Hilti Globe Life Field Construction site, as well as sponsorship of the Hilti Globe Life Field Observation Deck, a viewing area located on the right field upper concourse of Globe Life Park.
As a trusted partner, Hilti is involved in several key applications on the jobsite. Structurally, Hilti’s anchors and fasteners are used in anchoring, deck fastening and waterproofing applications. Various power tools are used for drilling, anchor setting, chipping and fastening. Hilti’s firestop products will be used in floor, through penetrations, and top of wall applications.
“We are proud to be a part of the ongoing construction at Globe Life Field as the project’s Official Tool Provider. With this partnership, we look forward to continuing to bring safety and productivity to the jobsite and the hundreds of contractors working here every day,” Avi Kahn, President and CEO, Hilti North America, said. “Seeing construction progress is always exciting and it means the Texas Rangers are one step closer to calling this state-of-the-art facility home.”
To help support jobsite safety and productivity, over 600 jobsite workers gathered at the new Rangers ballpark jobsite to listen to a Hilti-led safety message. The training provided a concise overview of the silica dust regulation, with an emphasis on the benefits of making safety a priority. In addition, a Hilti mobile store is on the jobsite to facilitate product purchases and ensure a high service level with immediate support.
“We are pleased to have Hilti join the Texas Rangers and Globe Life Field family,” said Jim Cochrane, Texas Rangers Senior Vice President, Partnerships and Client Services. “Globe Life Field provides an exciting landscape for Hilti and we’re excited for them to be part of the construction process.”
The new $1.2 billion-dollar ballpark is scheduled to open in March 2020. It will include a retractable roof for climate control and shelter for fans during the hot summer months.
