Lancaster, PA (June 30, 2015) – Ecore International, a company that transforms reclaimed into unique surfaces that make people’s lives better, is proud to announce it donated 2,200-square-feet of flooring to the Lancaster Country Club in Lancaster, Pa., for the 2015 U.S. Women’s Open. Ecore supplied Pinnacle, a unique surface that features a carpet surface fusion bonded to a recycled rubber backing, that was installed in two trailers on the grounds of the Club and will used by officials during the event on July 6-12.

“Pinnacle is a proprietary blend of fibers composed of recycled plastic bottles, designed for commercial, industrial, and retail applications,” said Arthur Dodge, III, CEO and President of Ecore. “These properties made Pinnacle the perfect flooring solution for the U.S. Women’s Open’s officials headquarters, since they will be running in and out of the trailers frequently, and it will be able to stand up to the abuse."

Dodge and his family have been members of the Lancaster Country Club since 1900. Dodge is the fifth generation of the Dodge family to operate Ecore. “As one of the leading sports surfacing companies in the world, we are thrilled to be able to showcase our capabilities and to be a part of the U.S. Woman’s Open,” said Dodge.

Ecore recently launched, Pinnacle 2, an evolution of the Pinnacle that was donated, which includes a new and improved soft surface that is able to withstand the same abuse. The interlocking tile format offers a simple, adhesive-free installation. Pinnacle 2 is part of Ecore Commercial Flooring’s Knot Carpet family.
