Sprinturf acquires organic infill company
Sprinturf has announced the acquisition of GreenPlay Organics, a supplier of plant-based organic infill systems. Both companies have extensive installations of artificial turf systems from coast to coast.
Sprinturf, in business since 1998, is the only North American company that produces all their fibers and turf, in house, and in America. GreenPlay’s plant-based infill systems have the unique distinction of providing “natural grass like” play conditions with temperature, aesthetics and performance that matches natural grass.
Rom Reddy, Managing Partner, Sprinturf commented: “The synergy between Sprinturf and Greenplay will create a single source provider of next generation playing surfaces that are cool to the touch, aesthetically pleasing and fully recyclable”.
Domenic Carapella, President of GreenPlay stated: “The partnership is a huge milestone to me since first introducing plant-based infills to the US over a decade ago. While GreenPlay will continue to operate independently and supply products to the entire industry, the opportunity to develop next generation systems with Sprinturf is exciting. The new generation of turf systems will provide athletes across the country with an affordable, high value turf system that plays, feels and looks like natural grass “
