TigerTurf To Open First Facility In The Americas

TigerTurf International, a man-made turf manufacturer based in New Zealand, has announced that due to increased demand in North and Latin America for its customized turf solutions, it plans to build its first facility in the Americas, located in Austin, Texas.

"By establishing a facility in the Americas we can bring our manufacturing technology and our focus on research and development the latest in conversion technologies, backings, yarns that much closer to our customers," said Graham Vivian, owner and founder.

The company expects the new facility to begin production this year. "It will manufacture all types of synthetic turf surfaces, using a range of fibers from the latest monofilaments to slit film and everything in between for our sport field and landscape solutions," said Harry Salomons, a director of TigerTurf Americas.
