GreenFields USA enters Canada with installation at Collège Reine Marie
GreenFields USA has recently completed the first Canadian installation of its premium woven turf product, IRONTURFTM, at Collège Reine Marie.
The Montreal-based school now has one full-sized soccer field and two mini-fields with over 40,000 square feet of IRONTURF, installed by GreenFields’ Quebec-based distribution partner, Tapitec.
IRONTURF is constructed using patented woven technology and is unmatched for playability, durability and safety.
“This product represents the best of both worlds,” said Olivier Roy, director of sports at Tapitec. “Players are excited because IRONTURF is safe, and it enhances their performance. Owners are thrilled because it’s the most durable product on the market, and their players love it.”
IRONTURF is quickly becoming the turf of choice throughout the Americas, upending the synthetic turf industry. Recent installations include Charlotte Motor Speedway, Sporting Kansas City’s training complex and more—as well as many other installations at secondary schools, such as Deering High School in Portland, Maine, and an all-blue field in Bloom Township, Illinois.
“IRONTURF’s durability makes it an excellent choice for soccer fields and all other high-impact sports,” said Avery Gallaher, director of operations for GreenFields. “We’re delighted that Collège Reine Marie chose us, and we hope they win many matches playing on the world’s strongest woven fibers.”
Roy also noted that the installation will be the first of many.
“Thanks to our new partnership with GreenFields, we’ll be able to bring more innovative turf technology to Canada,” said Roy.
