Artificial turf manufacturer EasyTurf says it has been selected by playground industry company Kompan North America to be the exclusive supplier of artificial grass for its nationwide playground construction projects.
The agreement between the EasyTurf, the landscape arm of Field Turf, and the playground systems and equipment company came after an extensive review process, said Kopman.
“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 VP 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.”
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, according to the maker of synthetic turf.
The company says 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.
