Shaw Sports Turf to distribute Geofill

Home Press Release Shaw Sports Turf to distribute Geofill

Calhoun, Ga. — Shaw Sports Turf and Italgreen S.p.A. of Italy have announced an exclusive partnership for Geofill in North America.

Italgreen is a 30-year-old Italian company that manufactures high-performance synthetic turf systems that have been installed in more than 50 countries, as well as the 100% organic infill, Geofill, for synthetic turf systems.

Geofill will now be offered exclusively in North America to customers of Shaw Sports Turf.

“This partnership allows us to continue to differentiate Shaw Sports Turf as the leader in the synthetic turf marketplace,” said Phil Barlow, vice president of Shaw’s Turf and Specialty Markets Division.  “Geofill is an environmentally friendly infill system that further reinforces the positive performance attributes of natural grass in a synthetic turf field system.”

Introduced in 2005, Geofill is the first 100% natural infill in the world.  It was originally introduced to provide a high-performance, environmentally friendly infill system.  More than 500 fields around the world currently feature Geofill.

Geofill is a 100% organic mix, consisting mainly of coconut fibers and organic materials resistant to aging, tearing, and adverse weather conditions.  Geofill creates a stabilized layer between the synthetic grass fibers which fills in the system like natural grass.  An added benefit is that Geofill systems are typically cooler than systems which use rubber infill.

Geofill systems meet all FIFA requirements for one and two-star certification.  FIFA is the world governing body of soccer.

“Shaw is a name known throughout the world for being a leader in manufacturing,” said Maurizio Gilardi, Director General of Italgreen.  “Italgreen and Geofill are also names with a best-in-class reputation, so this is a partnership which will greatly benefit customers in the North American market.”
