ADS and Eagle Golf Form Partnership for Golf Course Supplies
Columbus, Ohio -- The partnership of two industry leaders will give golf course contractors the benefits of quality products and service. Advanced Drainage Systems, Inc. (ADS), the world's largest manufacturer of corrugated high density polyethylene (HDPE) pipe, and Eagle Golf and Landscape Products, a leading provider of golf course supplies, are working together to offer golf course drainage and erosion control products that are the best in the business. ADS offers a variety of engineered drainage solutions for golf courses. N-12® pipe, offered in diameters from 4" to 60", brings superior ease of installation, strength under foot, cart and tractor traffic, and longevity. Easily-installed, trenchless AdvanEDGE® pipe has a flat, 1.5" profile and a 12" panel that has twice the contact area with soil as 4" round pipe, which leads to a faster drainage time, especially for greens construction. Nyloplast® drainage structures and heavy-duty grates are also available through the recent acquisition of Nyloplast by ADS. The structures allow projects to be completed faster by requiring only one trench width for both drainage structure and pipe, and by permitting the system to be buried as soon as it's installed.
Eagle Golf and Landscape Products offers erosion control fabrics and mats, lake and pond liners, cellular components, and its Eagle Interface. The Eagle Interface is a moisture and root zone barrier that is installed between the grass on the green and the land below to keep the two types of grass from mixing.
"Two service-oriented companies are coming together to offer contractors an efficient way to build a golf course with outstanding, performance-engineered products," says Steve Christman, president and chief executive officer of Eagle Golf and Landscape Products, and a board of directors member of the Golf Course Builders Association.
"Together, we will be a one-stop shop for anyone in the business of building a golf course," adds Tony Radoszewski, director of marketing for ADS, which is also a member of the Golf Course Builders Association. "This partnership strengthens our commitment to add value and ease of purchase and installation during that process."
The partnership is official July 1, 2001. Products from both companies will be available in the United States and worldwide.
