Artificial turf industry leader EasyTurf, Inc. has been selected by playground industry leader KOMPAN North America, Inc. to be the exclusive supplier of artificial grass for its nationwide playground construction projects. KOMPAN chose EasyTurf synthetic grass based on its proven performance as one of the safest, longest-lasting, most efficient draining and most realistic artificial grass products available today.
The agreement between EasyTurf, the landscape arm of Field Turf, and the playground systems and equipment company reaffirm both companies’ cutting-edge leadership position in the recreation and playground landscape marketplace.
After conducting an exhaustive product line review to meet its rigorous quality and safety requirements, KOMPAN found EasyTurf to be the only company capable of meeting their high standards at every installation location. KOMPAN creates unique recreational play structures and playgrounds throughout the U.S. and worldwide.
In recent years, synthetic turf has become the preferred landscape design solution for playground applications, surpassing sod and other natural landscape products. EasyTurf synthetic grass received the highest IPEMA safety certifications and KOMPAN, recognized these marketplace demand factors.
“At KOMPAN North America we are dedicated to creating exceptional play environments that promote healthy opportunities for users of all ages and all abilities,” says Jay Cooke, KOMPAN Vice President Sales, North America. “It is critical that our supplier partners offer a product that is superior in performance, while also delivering a clear and meaningful difference within their category.
“Our partners must also share complimenting principles with respect to innovation, value, service and long-term product durability; after an extensive review process and analysis, it was evident that EasyTurf was the best synthetic turf partner for KOMPAN North America."
Applications for artificial grass surfacing on playgrounds and in recreational areas continue to grow throughout North America. Artificial turf, originally known for its sports field and golf course applications, has experienced a boost in popularity in the commercial and residential landscape sectors as well as in school, daycare and pet facilities. Costly maintenance and water rate increases have also driven the switch to artificial grass for municipal landscapes and pet facilities.
“Becoming the exclusive artificial grass supplier to KOMPAN because of our industry-topping quality is an exciting opportunity,” says David Hartman, EasyTurf President. “EasyTurf has been recognized for many years as the leader of the artificial grass landscaping industry, and we are pleased to embark on this coveted joint venture with KOMPAN.”
