Delaware Is Well Aware of AstroTurf Excellence

Newark, DE – The University of Delaware is upgrading two of its most recognizable athletic fields, and they’re choosing AstroTurf® for the makeover. The school’s football stadium and field hockey stadium are both having state-of-the-art AstroTurf surfaces installed,...

Hope College Flying High with AstroTurf

Holland, MI – The turf industry pioneers are teaming up with a school that believes in the pioneering spirit. Hope College has selected a cutting edge synthetic turf system from AstroTurf® to replace the old field at Van Andel Stadium, and this new artificial surface is the first of its kind ever installed in the state of Michigan.

“It says a lot about Hope College to select AstroTurf DT32 and become the first institution to embrace this state-of-the-art surface in the state of Michigan. We are thrilled to be a part of the Hope community.” said Rich Jordan, AstroTurf Vice President of Architectural Sales.

The new field features the DT32 product, part of AstroTurf’s Green Series. What makes this system so distinctive is its use of a specialized infill called ZeoFill in lieu of the traditional sand and crumb rubber infill. ZeoFill is an organic mineral used in health food supplements and water filtration systems that actually helps to reduce surface temperatures. Combined with an industry tough ProPlay pad, high-density fibers and AstroTurf’s patented RootZone® layer, the DT32 product synthesizes several different advanced artificial turf technologies into one cohesive system. The result is a playing surface that uses no rubber, has lower temperatures and lower maintenance requirements, and can stand up to high usage environments. It’s unlike any turf system anywhere in the state of Michigan to date.

“When it came time to replace the field at Van Andel Stadium, we were looking for a top-of-the-line turf system,” said Kara Slater, Director of Physical Plant at Hope College. “AstroTurf’s DT product was very intriguing, and ultimately we decided it was in the best interest of our student-athletes to go with this game changing field.”

Built in 2009, Van Andel Stadium is one of the premier Division III soccer venues in the country, with seating for 1,400, stadium lighting and other amenities. The new AstroTurf surface is lined for both soccer and lacrosse.

AstroTurf Brings It All Under One Roof

Dalton, GA – AstroTurf, a worldwide leader in artificial turf headquartered in Dalton, Georgia, has announced an ambitious plan to streamline all of its manufacturing operations into a single facility. It’s a multi-phased endeavor that involves the relocation of existing equipment and the purchase of new manufacturing technology, as well as the functional alignment of previously scattered personnel groups.

AstroTurf’s Board approved the proposal on January 3rd, with completion of the project slated for the end of June. Already well under way, the plan represents a major capital investment of several million dollars aimed at operational improvement for the global sports surfacing company.

“This move will bring all of the operations required to produce synthetic turf under one roof,” said AstroTurf CEO Heard Smith.  “We’re going to significantly reduce transportation costs and waste while improving the quality and efficiency of our manufacturing processes.”

AstroTurf’s new facility, located on Callahan Road in Dalton, measures approximately 375,000 square feet, or roughly the size of seven football fields. It will house the consolidated operations of separate facilities currently located in the Synthetic Turf Resources building in Dalton and the Turfstore and Polytex plants in Calhoun. Additionally a new coater, several new creels, a new industrial computer, and a new communications system have all been purchased for the building.

When fully operational, the new manufacturing center on Callahan Road will handle masterbatch, extrusion, twisting, tufting, and coating – essentially the entire step-by-step process for manufacturing artificial turf. The facility will also include additional space for storing raw materials and finished product.

The Operations Management, Human Resources, Information Technology, and Research & Development departments will all have offices in the new facility. AstroTurf will retain its corporate headquarters on Abutment Road where Marketing, Sales, and corporate officers continue to conduct business.

Aurora Chooses AstroTurf for New Park

 

Aurora, IL – Aurora University is building a brand new athletic complex, and the school has chosen AstroTurf® to help them realize it. Construction of Spartan Athletic Park is underway, and as part of the development Aurora has purchased two state-of-the-art playing surfaces from AstroTurf. Installation of the two fields is slated to begin in June.

Phase I of the Spartan Athletic Park plan calls for the establishment of a brand new softball facility as well as a field for soccer, lacrosse, and football. The outfield and foul territory portions of the softball field will be surfaced with AstroTurf’s RootZone Diamond Blend. This premium artificial turf system is specifically engineered to emulate the look, feel, and playability of natural grass for baseball and softball use.

The multipurpose field will have RootZone 3D Decade installed. So named because it comes with an unprecedented ten year warranty, this product delivers superior durability with high level performance and aesthetics.

“We’re honored to play a part in the development of this fantastic new sports park at Aurora University,” said Rob Mitchell, Regional Sales Manager for AstroTurf. “The turf systems they’ve selected will deliver long-lasting performance for their student athletes while adding to the pleasing aesthetic of the park’s design.”

Spartan Athletic Park is being developed on a 75-acre parcel of land just south of campus that the school recently purchased. Aurora University anticipates that the multisport complex will enable the school to host championships, postseason tournaments, summer youth camps, and community events in the years ahead.
