Pitchmark announces at BTME the exciting launch of Turfix, a newly formed subsidiary of The Pitchmark Group. Turfix will act as Pitchmark’s sole UK distribution arm, offering premium pitch solutions to the professional sports turf sector. This will include bespoke advice, education and the supply of a wide range of products from manufacturers including Pitchmark, ICL, Harrod Sport, Tildenet and BMS.
“We have developed very good relationships with other manufacturers in the sports turf industry worldwide,” says The Pitchmark Group’s Chairman, Mark Rodman, who has over thirty years of experience in the horticultural and amenity sector. “We have a highly experienced team with years of knowledge of a wide variety of products. Pitchmark is a line marking specialist brand, and to in order to offer complimentary product ranges we felt creating a new structure was the best approach.”
What makes Turfix different, Mark says, is the quality of service, with the facility to spend more time with groundsmen and implement specifically tailored solutions for all their requirements. Every turf support manager has been a groundsman or greenkeeper in their career, adding a unique level of understanding. Turfix customers nationwide will also have access to a unique GPS pitch-marking service using Pitchmark’s LineMaster system.
The introduction of Turfix is another landmark in The Pitchmark Group’s development that has led to rapid expansion and the appointment of three new directors. The company supplied all stadia at FIFA World Cup Brazil 2014 and Euro 2016 France, and Pitchmark paint was also used to mark the pitch at the Principality Stadium for the Champions League Final 2017.
“Breaking new ground has been the hallmark of our business,” adds Mark. “Turfix brings together our experience and our understanding of what groundsmen need. It provides the ideal platform for sharing our knowledge and premium products.” Turfix officially opens for business on the 22nd January 2019 at BTME Stand 137, Blue Zone.
