Custom BMX Plates & Cycling Merchandise
My name is Erik Drizners and I am the owner operator of Rush Industries, here is the story behind Rush Industries.
In 2006 my sons began to race BMX, little did I know that this would change the direction of my sign business.
Back in 2006 number plates were a mix of old school plates, State/National Titles plates and there were several ice cream container lids being used, the back of old award plates, some Dirt Action & THE plates. All of them very much a home made looking plate. Numbers coloured in with a texta or cut from insulation tape finished off the plates.
With over 20 years experience in the signage industry I knew that I would be putting a twist on the home made BMX plate and make my own for my sons. The plates were popular and friends started asking if I could make them some. At this stage they were all hand made using vinyl cut decals.
One incident at our local track was enough for me to take making BMX Plates more seriously. A crash in a sprocket race is never pleasant, but when there were broken home made number plates with shattered sharp edges on them, I knew I had to start making my plates available to everyone and not just friends.
Scissors were put away and replaced with a CNC Router, computer cut decals were replaced with full colour digital printing and cable ties were swapped for velcro tabs.
Being at the forefront of Custom BMX Number Plates in Australia I am very pleased with what I have achieved. BMX Number Plates are no longer an after thought, they are now an extension of your bike, a tool for your sponsors, a statement for your Club and a message that you care about your appearance. I take it as a compliment the amount of number plates made by other companies that bare a very similar appearance to my plates.
Rush Industries also offers several other products that compliment BMX & Cycling Clubs.
Banners, Stickers, Wing/Teardrop Flags, Marquees & Posters... all available with the same service and quality as the BMX Plates.
Rush Industries is looking forward to what the future will bring.
