Act Global has acquired the UBU and Turfscape brands from Turf Industry Holdings. UBU is best known as the synthetic turf chosen by 14 NFL teams, numerous NCAA teams and other top-tier venues throughout the USA.
“Going forward, we’re very excited for UBU and Turfscape to join the Act Global family of brands,” says Turf Industry president Joe Vrankin. “Act Global is known for its focus on player safety, biomechanics and quality manufacturing, as well as being a strong partner to field owners, consultants, contractors and the industry as a whole. Most importantly, they’re a great organization with strong moral values and a culture to do the best job possible. In many ways, Act Global is perfectly poised to take the UBU and Turfscape brands to a new level.”
“The addition of the UBU and Turfscape brands will accelerate the growth of Act Global and our partners,” says John Baize, Act Global CEO. “Act Global’s pipeline of new turf technologies will be available in both our Xtreme Turf and UBU brands for the professional and amateur ranks, starting in 2017 and beyond. We appreciate the support of our valued employees and partners as we look forward to a bright future.”
