TigerTurf International, a man-made turf manufacturer based in New Zealand, has announced that due
to increased demand in North and Latin America for its customized turf solutions, it plans to build
its first facility in the Americas, located in Austin, Texas.

focus on research and development the latest in conversion technologies, backings, yarns that much
closer to our customers,” said Graham Vivian, owner and founder.

film and everything in between for our sport field and landscape solutions,” said Harry Salomons, a
director of TigerTurf Americas.
