Kelly Connect, a regional printer, copier, and office equipment and technology supplier, has acquired the naming rights to the former O’Malley Ice Center as part of its purchase of Royal Business Systems in August of 2021. The facility is now called the Kelly Connect Ice Center.
Kelly Connect’s sponsorship at the O’Malley Sports Complex is part of a cooperative endeavor by each organization to add value through partnership, collaboration, and service to the local active sports community.
“Reinvesting in Alaska has always paid off,” said Aric Manion, CEO of Kelley Connect. “The entire region is growing exponentially, and the technology support is not keeping up. It’s a natural fit for us to join established businesses and help with their expansion.”
Kelly Connect is an Oregon-based company that has been in business since 1974. They specialize in technology solutions for businesses, and the sales, leasing, and servicing of printing and office equipment for businesses across the region. Kelly Connect provides office equipment, including printers and copiers, from companies such as HP, Kyocera, Xerox, Konica Minolta, and Canon.
O’Malley Ice and Sports Center operates two athletic facilities in South Anchorage. One facility houses two NHL sized ice rinks, while the other has four multipurpose courts and an indoor trampoline park. O’Malley Ice and Sports Center is home to more than 100 local youth and adult athletic teams, including hockey, basketball, volleyball, and roller derby teams.
