Keystone Sports Construction Scores Top Spot in Inc. Magazine’s List of the Fastest Growing Companies in Pennsylvania

After a year of astronomical growth, Keystone Sports Construction, a certified AstroTurf® distributor located in Exton, Pennsylvania, earned the number-one position in Inc. Magazine’s list of the fastest-growing private companies in the state. The magazine also ranked Keystone as the fourth fastest-growing company in the construction industry and the 113th fastest-growing company in America.

Here is a link to the complete list. https://www.inc.com/inc5000/2021

The leadership team at Keystone Sports Construction, including owners Chris Wright and Russell Lydanne II, Vice President of Sales Ben Seleznow, and Vice President of Operations Adam Al-Halal, credit their people for the company’s success.

“Despite the logistical challenges that are facing so many companies, we’ve been able to overcome. We’ve got great people here to perform the work,” says Seleznow.

The company is also known for being a client-focused business that sets a high bar for quality. According to Seleznow, “The two things we really focus on are quality installations and exceeding our clients’ expectations. We are always working to build top-flight facilities.”

Keystone Sports Construction grew 3,678 percent in the past year. Founded in 2013, the company is committed to providing industry-leading sports installations that ensure durability and player safety. It offers facility owners end-to-end single-source design-build services and installs only the best athletic surface sports systems, including turf fields made by the company that invented artificial turf, AstroTurf®

“We couldn’t have done this without our amazing team and clients,” said Lyddane. “This is just the beginning. Our continued desire to disrupt the sports construction industry by offering best in breed products accompanied with world class customer service, is the perfect recipe for further growth!”

With solid growth not just in 2020 but also over the past three years, Keystone is building an impressive track record and emerging as a young company to watch. It’s also playing a pivotal role in driving economic growth in Pennsylvania. The businesses on Inc. Magazine’s list of the 5,000 fastest-growing private companies in the U.S. brought in a total of $248 billion in revenue and added 2.5 million jobs to the national economy.

Landing in the top 200 in America is a huge feat for any company, and at 113th, Keystone Sports Construction is really demonstrating its strength in the industry. By customizing artificial turf solutions and going above and beyond to ensure every product they install has been independently tested and proven to last, facility owners and managers know they’re getting the best of the best with a Keystone Sports installation project.

“The Inc. Magazine ranking is a well-deserved honor. Keystone is an incredible company with a dedicated team,” said Scott Franks, AstroTurf’s national manager of distributor relations. “They’ve done an outstanding job installing AstroTurf® systems at sports facilities throughout the region – we’ve seen nothing but stand-out work every time. We’re proud to be a part of their journey and we are excited to contribute to their growth by creating playing surfaces with the best sport-specific performance, durability and player protection.”

Brown University Installs New AstroTurf Surface for Field Hockey

Providence, Rhode Island – The upcoming fall season will be one to remember for Brown University Field Hockey. The Bears will play on a brand new state-of-the-art surface manufactured by the leaders in synthetic turf, AstroTurf®. Purpose-built to enhance ball roll consistency and increase safety, the new field, the AstroTurf® System 90, will empower the Bears to push themselves hard both in practice and on game days.

2021 also marks the 11th season with Head Coach Jill Reeve at the helm. A former Olympian, 12-year national team member, and USA Field Hockey Hall of Fame inductee, Reeve is adept at drawing out the best in her players. Over the past decade at Brown, she has coached 28 student-athletes to All-Ivy honors and has led her team to many surprise wins.

This will also be the first season with Assistant Coach Keighan Richardson. A graduate of Bryant University, where she was co-captain her senior year and named to the First Team All-MAAC team and the All-MAAC Tournament Team her junior year, Richardson brings a wealth of experience to the table. Joining Reeve and long-time Assistant Coach Jillian Coppola, Richardson will be instrumental in helping the Brown Bears take their level of sportsmanship up a notch.

“The turf is spectacular, and the timing of its unveiling comes at the perfect moment,” said Head Coach Jill Reeve.  “This field is symbolic of our journey as we kick-off our 2021 season. It highlights Brown’s commitment to the program and our student-athletes. I couldn’t be more pleased.”

The AstroTurf System 90 features A12 knitted nylon. Our System 90 provides low ball bounce and non-directionality fibers to enhance the ball roll while providing the athletes a firmer feel under foot. For the layer underneath the knitted nylon, Brown University went with a 3/8” Armacell Pad for enhanced shock absorption.

AstroTurf® has been considered the gold standard in the sport ever since the game was played on an AstroTurf® system at the Montreal Olympics in 1976. Uniform and predictable, it is the field hockey turf of choice at top universities around the country, including Rutgers University, Duke University, and the University of Maryland.

Goldberger Family Field, the official home turf for the Brown Bears field hockey team, is a regulation-sized field hockey field. It only has lines for the sport and is the exclusive practice and competition field for Brown Field Hockey.

In addition to installing a new AstroTurf® system, Goldberger Family Field also has a new Daktronics scoreboard, spectator stands, and a press box. It’s a well-deserved, end-to-end upgrade for a hard-working team of student-athletes.

“We’re excited about the recent turf replacement at Goldberger Field which will provide our field hockey student-athletes and coaches with a new state-of-the-art field when they return to play this fall,” said Vice President of Athletics and Recreation M. Grace Calhoun ’92, Ph.D. “Our new high-quality playing surface provides our program with another tool to improve and is a testament to the university’s ongoing commitment to facility enhancements and upgrades to our Division.”

The Bears start the fall field hockey season with three straight home tilts beginning on September 3rd. They play Saint Francis, followed by Merrimack on September 5th, and local rival Bryant on September 10th. Brown will host a total of nine home games this year, giving fans plenty of opportunities to come out and support the team.

Charleston Southern Upgrades to AstroTurf

Charleston, SC – After an exciting 2-2 spring season and weeks of hardcore training, the Charleston Southern University (CSU) Buccaneers are more than ready for the fall 2021 game season. To make the year even more worth waiting for, the Bucs will be playing on a new AstroTurf® football field engineered to enhance safety, playability, and durability.

The school’s athletic program worked closely with AstroTurf® to ensure the new installation was completed in time for the 20th Big South Conference season.

“We are extremely pleased with the installation of our new turf,” said Jeff Barber, director of athletics at Charleston Southern. “The entire process, from the very beginning to the end, was run as smoothly and efficiently as it possibly could have been. I greatly appreciated the communication between our department and AstroTurf as we navigated through all the steps.”

CSU chose one of AstroTurf’s most competitive products for the project, the RootZone 3D3 Trionic Blend 60. A leading-edge turf system, RootZone 3D3 fields are a cut above thanks to their texturized layer of fibers that hold down the infill. This special RootZone layer improves shock absorbency, reducing the risk of injury on the field. It also serves to minimize infill migration, a major factor in synthetic turf degradation.

The quality of AstroTurf’s turfed surface was independently tested by Michigan State University. Michigan found that playing on the turf effectively reduces torque to the lower extremities. These safety and performance benefits are one of the main reasons why both athletes and field owners prefer AstroTurf®.

In addition to boosting playability, the new field will also get an aesthetic upgrade. The athletic department’s updated logo – the three-color Bucky head – will be at mid-field. The end zones will get a refresh with a bold navy background and the Buccaneers wordmark. To comply with the new NCAA legislation passed in the spring, the CSU also chose to extend the gold and navy coaching boxes to the 20-yard line.

“Now that the installation is complete and usage has begun, we have received nothing but great reviews from our players and fans,” added Barber.

Charleston Southern University Football is led by former NFL player and Notre Dame all-time leading rusher Autry Denson. An inspiring leader who knows how to bring out the best in his players, Denson is expected to steer the Bucs to a strong finish this year. Charleston Southern was picked to finish fourth in the Big South Conference, although they have their sights on the top-three seeded teams, Monmouth, Kennesaw State, and North Carolina A&T.

The Buccaneers also placed two players on the preseason All-Conference First Team Defence – senior Shaundre Mims and junior Cody Cline. The Bucs have been putting in long hours to prep for what should be a gripping college football season, and they’re gearing up for their opening game on September 11th against The Citadel Bulldogs. Home games this year include match-ups against Monmouth, Hampton, Campbell, and North Carolina A&T.
