Source: Sporturf Dalton, Ga. (May 21, 2013) - Sporturf, an international manufacturer and builder of synthetic turf fields, has significantly expanded its presence in the Midwest with the opening of the company's third regional field office in Kansas City, Missouri. Sporturf Midwest is under the leadership of President Craig Shonk, and will focus on Iowa, Nebraska, Missouri and Kansas. "This strategic move opens up a market that Sporturf has not really been in before," noted Shonk. "Bringing an ISO manufacturer and a Midwest-based ASBA certified field builder together gives clients the best of both worlds." Sporturf Midwest recently completed their first, full-size turf install in Nebraska with the practice field at Millard North High School in Omaha, the largest high school in the state. Millard North benefitted in many ways from the new field, including having access to the most current fiber technology. Their team, the Mustangs, will play soccer and football games on Powerhouse 3C featuring a custom blend of monofilament and tape fibers that are the wave of the future. Peru State's historic Oak Bowl is the next project to take advantage of Sporturf's local "grassroots" plan of allowing direct access with their synthetic turf manufacturer. "Building long lasting relationships gives everyone involved unprecedented peace of mind," added Darby McCamy, Sporturf Fields Vice President. "We have bridged the gap between owner and manufacturer with our local team of certified field builders, who focus on the design-build process more than the next sale." The Sporturf main office and mill is located in Dalton, Georgia, and San Diego-based Sporturf International started in 2003. In addition, Sporturf International serves some of the most prominent sports facilities in South America and the Caribbean, such as the Haiti FIFA National Stadium and Eddy Coello Stadium in Ecuador. About SporturfHeadquartered in Dalton, Georgia, Sporturf supplies large and small customers alike with the widest variety of turf in the world. The company is a division of Controlled Products, one of the leading manufacturers of synthetic turf worldwide. Sporturf has engineered synthetic turf fields for baseball, soccer, football, lacrosse and hockey programs in 30 states and the D.C. area.
