Published on 2007-01-25. Author : SpecialChem

ROCHESTER HILLS, Mich. -- Pioneer Athletics is expanding its commitment to new, innovative synthetic turf paints and coatings as well as antimicrobial protection to its 22,000 customers worldwide thanks to a new partnership with SportCoatings.

"We are thrilled to add a partner like Pioneer Athletics. There isn't a company in the paint and coatings industry that can rival their history of quality, reliability and dedication to customer service," said Craig Andrews, CEO SportCoatings. "Pioneer, added to our existing partnership with General Sports Venue, completes our goal of providing service to all aspects of the turf and sports market."

"The synthetic turf market is growing exponentially and the partnership with SportCoatings allows us to offer a full range of innovative paints and coatings to our customers," said Doug Schattinger, president of Pioneer Athletics.

Under this new agreement, Pioneer Athletics will be the exclusive provider of the SportCoatings line of maintenance and restoration products and together they will co-develop innovative coatings designed for synthetic turf systems.

Pioneer will also become the exclusive provider of TurfD, the newest member of the successful TurfAide family that provides six months of antimicrobial protection to synthetic turf systems with one application.

"There is a growing demand for antimicrobial protection among our customer base and we can now fill that market need with the industry-leading antimicrobial technology powering TurfD and the entire Sports Antimicrobial System (SAS) from SportCoatings," said Schattinger.

Introduced last year, the Sports Antimicrobial System of SportsAide, TurfD, TurfAide and the SportsAide fabric conditioner now protects the facilities, equipment and fields of teams nationwide from the NFL, NBA, and NHL to high schools and colleges nationwide.

SportCoatings' successful partnership with General Sports Venue, specialists in sports venue development and synthetic turf manufacturing, continues to provide SAS to the athletic market. In December, GSV re- introduced the Astroturf brand and announced that they would be the first and only to offer synthetic turf systems factory treated with TurfAide with the industry-leading 8-year warranty.

With 100 years history, Pioneer Athletics is the leading developer and manufacturer of paints, coatings and striping equipment for both natural and synthetic turf. Over 18,000 professional, collegiate and high school teams across North America and Europe rely on Pioneer Athletics' portfolio of reliable and durable athletic field maintenance products.

General Sports Venue specializes in turnkey sports venue solutions, and is one of the fastest-growing synthetic surface and sports venue development specialists in the U.S., focused on bringing innovative products and services to its clients in professional, collegiate and amateur sports.

A division of the Coatings Specialist Group (CSG), SportCoatings is the leading developer of innovative products that enhance, restore, maintain and protect synthetic sports surfaces.
