Description

Description: 

This UK Company manufactures artificial grass surfaces for sports, leisure and landscaping applications, and has been active in doing so since 1981 and has become one of the largest artificial turf manufacturers in the UK. This company is already selling their products in overseas markets and is looking for new distributors in the EU in various European counries.

This company manufactures different types of turf for different requirements, such as for sports pitches, domestic uses & commercial spaces. At the higher level, their products have the performance qualities necessary for top-level training and competition facilities as these artificial grass surfaces have been approved and certified by international sports governing bodies such as FIFA, World Rugby Reg 22, FIH, ITF, RFL and the GAA.

The new types of artificial turf that this company manufactures are now also 'contact friendly' in that no friction burns occur when a player comes into contact with the surface, and look much more natural than older 'astroturf' pitches, which is a major advancement in the usability of these products.

This company is seeking partners that are likely to have a need and/or want of these products, and is looking for distributors that have established needs for these kinds of products, or ideally, is already installing this type of product.
