Grassman has been a leader in the production and design of artificial grass surfaces for over 30 years.
Started by industry pioneer, Gary Waterford in 1978, Grassman’s first product lines were cricket wickets in conjunction with Ampol Australia.
Tennis courts followed, and soon Grassman was producing a full range of sports and landscape products.
Seeing the need for heavily used multi-sports facilities, Grassman went onto develop specialist materials for Hockey, Rugby and Football.
These have been exported around the world and now Grassman products are sold in over 35 countries.
Grassman has established a worldwide reputation for product excellence and innovation. Over half the annual production line is exported.
Grassman is today the largest fully integrated producer of synthetic grass in Australia, with factories in Melbourne and Sydney.
With a keen eye for innovation, Grassman was the first manufacturer to raise tram lines for tennis courts, creating the patented synthetic red clay courts - Classic ClayTM.
Grassman also led the development of dry Hockey fields and was the first to promote PEP non-burn yarn for sports fields.
Today the history of innovation continues with DUCCTM, a unique underlay that allows water to be channelled away into a catchment drain. Used under sports fields, it not only reduces the cost of ground preparation, but also effectively turns your sports field into a water catchment device.
Grassman’s head office is in Botany and the company is still led by its founder, Gary Waterford.
