Sports & Landscape has signed a commercial agreement with Polytan GmbH, a German multinational, world leader in athletics tracks and artificial turf for hockey and football, through which it becomes a business partner for Catalonia, Navarra and the Basque Country.

The agreement was signed by the manager of the Barcelona company, Ignasi Senabre, and the International Sales Director of the German company, Fred Van Wijk, during a visit to the Polytan facilities in Grefrath, in the west of the country. Also participating in the meetings were Pedro Pinto, Business Manager EMEA, and Ricardo Lezcano, Business Developer Manager Spain, from Polytan, in addition to Marta Marín as assistant to the Sports & Landscape management.

With more than 50 years of experience, Polytan manufactures the LigaTurf (football) and Poligras (hockey) artificial turf brands and the Rekortan resin systems for athletics tracks.

Likewise, Polytan is recognized worldwide for the high quality and durability of its products, having references to installations in Spain of athletics tracks with more than 20 years and soccer fields with more than 15 years.

Both companies are fully committed to protecting the environment and sustainability, and promote innovation and research and development as the basis for offering high-quality products with maximum guarantees.

In terms of artificial turf, Polytan stands out not only for being the official supplier of field hockey in the World Cups and Olympic Games, but also for its innovative GT technology, for Green Technology, which allows most of the product’s components to be bioplastics, derived from sugar cane, while the remaining percentage comes from recycled plastic.

Senabre has highlighted that “it is the most innovative technology that currently exists in the world artificial turf market” and has added that “the product is CO2 neutral, since the carbon emissions in the installation of the field are compensated with the bioplastics, the factory with all clean energy (ISO 5001) and the optimization of processes”.

Polytan and Sports & Landscape will work together to develop this market in Spain with innovation and sustainability as main values.
