Sporturf opens Midwest office

May 24, 2013  - By

Sporturf, a Dalton, Ga.-based manufacturer and builder of synthetic turf fields, has expanded its presence in the Midwest with the opening of its third regional field office in Kansas City, Mo.  Sporturf Midwest is under the leadership of President Craig Shonk and will focus on Iowa, Nebraska, Missouri and Kansas.

Sporturf Midwest recently completed its first full-size turf installation in Nebraska with the practice field at Millard North High School in Omaha.

“This strategic move opens up a market that Sporturf has not really been in before,” Shonk said. “Bringing an ISO manufacturer and a Midwest-based American Sports Builders Association-certified field builder together gives clients the best of both worlds.”

Sporturf Midwest recently completed its first full-size turf installation 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,” Sporturf Fields Vice President Darby McCamy said. “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.”
