This month, history was made when retired New York Yankees pitcher Mariano Rivera became the first player in history to be voted into the National Baseball Hall of Fame unanimously. It’s every athlete and coach’s dream to become inducted into a Hall of Fame, no matter if it’s on the professional level, collegiate level or high school level. Lachman & Co., located in Southfield, Michigan, is proud to have been there with so many Hall of Fame inductees. Our beautiful plaques and awards are right there with the inductees as they enter the Hall of Fame.
When University of Michigan wrestling coach Joe McFarland retired recently, Lachman & Co. was commissioned to honor the Hall of Fame coach. We had the privilege of creating a beautiful, lasting tribute to the longtime Big Ten coach. Many local schools have trophy cases full of custom-made awards, plaques and trophies created by Lachman & Co. We love working with high school athletic programs to design the perfect awards for sports teams and individual athletic achievement.
Our 125-year-old company also works with colleges and high schools to create the most beautiful maces for commencement ceremonies. Maces are the wooden staffs typically adorned with custom-designed brass medallions specific to that school, college or university. A mace bearer carries the staff in front of the school’s president or other leaders during processions. They are also used as stationary decorations near a podium or microphone during important speeches. Lachman & Co. is a leader in the design and production of maces and has collaborated with many institutions to create traditional maces that are just right for each school.
Whether its a hall of fame plaque, a sports trophy or a custom mace, schools have been calling on Lachman & Co. for generations. From the traditional to the modern, Lachman & Co. puts its experience to work for schools. We work with athletic directors around the country to fill all their award needs — from swimming, tennis, football and soccer to baseball, wrestling, golf and basketball. Let’s work together!
