  • Dave Miller's role in 'Foxcatcher' is multi-dimensional

    Dave Miller's role in 'Foxcatcher' is multi-dimensional

    To say Dave Miller is involved in the movie "Foxcatcher" is an understatement.

    His company, Dollamur, participated in the filming of the story of gold-medal-winning wrestlers Mark and Dave Schultz and their involvement at the Foxcatcher Farms training facility owned by multi-millionaire John du Pont by providing singlets and warm-ups used in the movie. What's more, Miller himself has a role in the film, essentially playing himself as the then-executive director of USA Wrestling, negotiating with du Pont.

    Dollamur supplied custom mats for "Foxcatcher"

    From the perspectives as a supplier and actor, Miller is able to provide a behind-the-scenes look into the making of "Foxcatcher" which debuted in a total of six theaters in New York City and Los Angeles on November 14, and is slowly being rolled out in selected cities week-by-week for the next couple months ... a strategy often employed by studios that believe that a particular film could receive Oscar nominations. In the case of "Foxcatcher", that is not a far-fetched possibility. As of this writing, most reviews have been very positive, with speculation that principal actors Channing Tatum (who plays Mark Schultz), Mark Ruffalo (Dave Schultz) and Steve Carell (John du Pont) are in the running for best actor nominations, along with possible best director honors for Bennett Miller, and even possible consideration for best picture.

  • Dollamur Featured in Tuscaloosa news

    As CEO of Dollamur Sports Surfaces LP, Ochsenreiter oversees North America’s largest manufacturer and distributor of high-performance specialty mats that keep wrestlers, gymnasts, cheerleaders, martial artists, Cross-

    Fitters and military combatants from letting the hard floor defeat them.

    Dollamur’s headquarters and plant will churn out more than 6.3 million square feet of foam mats this year — enough to cover a football field 60 times.

    These specialty mats will be used everywhere from spare bedrooms to some of the most prestigious sporting events around the globe, including the Wrestling World Championship in Las Vegas next September.

    Even the Dallas Cowboys Cheerleaders have Dollamur underfoot.

    “We apply foam to vinyl or carpet — that’s all we do,” Ochsenreiter says. “And we’re very, very good at it. If you buy a mat for your son or your grandson to wrestle on in the garage, you’re getting the exact same quality as the U.S. Junior Olympic Trials.”

    Dollamur was formed in 1996 by Jeff Anderson, who set up shop in Fort Worth as an extension of the family business in Canada. The name is a mashing of his parents’ first names, Dolly and Murray.

    Nine years ago, Frist Capital LLC, a private investment firm in Nashville, bought Dollamur. Since 2005, the company has gone from $10 million in sales — primarily wrestling mats — to $25 million this year by adding sports such as martial arts and new-wave venues.

  • Dollamur Sport Surfaces Announces UWW Approval

    Industry Leader Becomes Only North American Wrestling Mat
    Manufacturer Approved for Olympic Games, World Championships

    Fila approved mats(FORT WORTH, TX) – Dollamur Sports Surfaces (Dollamur) – the world’s largest manufacturer and distributor of high-performance sports surfaces for wrestling, martial arts, mixed martial arts, fitness, gymnastics, cheerleading and yoga – announces it has received the United World Wrestling (UWW) safety approval for wrestling mats used in high-level international competitions.

    Formerly known as FILA (International Federation of Associated Wrestling Styles) certification, the approval comes as the result of extensive scientific evaluation and testing by the international governing body. With it, Dollamur becomes the only North American-based manufacturer of wrestling mats eligible for use in major events including the Olympic Games and World Championship competitions.

    “UWW approval will allow world class athletes to compete on the same Dollamur mats they train on including next year’s World Championships in Las Vegas. This is the second such approval Dollamur has received from UWW," says Gary MacDowell, Dollamur executive vice president of sales and business development. "Our surfaces are the safest, highest quality products available and we look forward to seeing them used in wrestling’s most important international events.”

    Dollamur’s mats feature convenient Flexi-Connect™ product innovation, a patented technology available only from Dollamur allowing the mat sections to be seamlessly connected without additional fasteners or tape saving the school or club thousands of dollars in on-going tape replacement.

    photo 5Available in a variety of sizes and thicknesses to meet the needs of individual sports and facilities, Dollamur’s vinyl sports mats have an anti-microbial feature and are easy-to-clean, move and store. The low-maintenance, durable surfaces do not require reconditioning and will not crack or peel. A closed cell, cross-linked polyethylene construction prevents shrinking and hardening, creating a safer mat that maintains maximum shock absorption and resiliency.
    The company has official wrestling partnerships with USA Wrestling, the Big 10 Conference, North American Grappling Association and 12 high school state wrestling championships, among others.

    Proudly made in the USA, Dollamur vinyl mats offer a five-year warranty. Designed to fit any athletic room, the products meet and exceed multiple impact tests, such as ASTM F1081 and F355.

    Dollamur mats are used in key wrestling events all over the world. Upcoming highlights include the Big 10 Conference Championships, US Open Wrestling Championships, and the World Championships.
