INNOVATION
Engineered Performance

Our product innovations are based on design and engineering. Torpey is committed to product innovations for our customers through design thinking and refinement through engineering principles.

Torpey Bambú our most recent product innovation combines unique design, engineering, and sustainability to produce the optimum hurley for players. Torpey Bambú has been researched and developed by our finest engineers; six years of research, development and testing has resulted in our new product. Elite players have been integral to the final design and have been involved in research, testing, design and development.

CRAFT
ROOTED IN TRADITION

Torpey have always learned from the past and developed for the future. The craft of Hurley making is now in its third generation at Torpey. During each generation, the demands of Hurling have changed, and the crafting process has also developed.

Torpey Big Bás — although developed over many years — is finished with traditional handcrafting methods for optimum balance and feel. Hurley creation still involves hand finishing and craftwork at many stages. Discussion with players about their individual preferences is also a huge part of the crafting process, even today.

SUSTAINABILITY
Environmental engineering

Torpey is built on learning and development, and we are particularly conscious to learn and develop to reduce our environmental impact. We aim to create products which are environmentally friendly and biodegradable where possible. Currently, our largest product base is made from ash and bamboo.

Our ash hurleys are biodegradable after use, the ash hardwood is FSC certified from managed forestry resources. Our forests are all operated ethically and incorporate sustainable supply chains. Additionally, bamboo is one of the fastest-growing, renewable resources in the world.

In conjunction with European partners, we have developed a sustainable bamboo life cycle. This includes sustainable forestry, carbon storage, certification, and responsible production. Strategies like these allow us to maximise our potential without impacting the environment.

Sustainability (2)

Torpey unites sporting heritage with a focus on innovation. We build on past techniques and evolve our craft for the future. Our range of premium-quality, sustainable products are ingrained in GAA culture. Our elite design and engineering processes ensure that our products meet and exceed requirements — you’re only as good as the tools you use.
