Medallion and Shaw Sportexe Announce Exclusive Partnership

The synthetic turf industry has seen incredible growth in the sports sector, with its ability to perform under intense climate conditions, withstand thousands of hours of play and fulfill the intense demands of multiple sports - Is it any wonder that synthetic sport fields are in such high demand these days?

Athletic programs in the Southeast, a region known for its uniquely warm and wet climate, mild winters, high humidity and droughts, have suffered significantly trying to maintain natural turf in such difficult and unpredictable weather conditions. As the acceptance of synthetic turf systems and their benefits increase in scope, industry leaders like Shaw Sportexe, manufacturer and installer of synthetic turf, strategically plan for growth by building strong industry relationships.

The exclusive partnership with top-rated sports contractor Medallion, known for their comprehensive project management, in-house base and turf installation and excellent customer service in the Southeast region, strengthens market penetration and provides a better overall experience for our increased customer base. Medallion will offer Shaw's full line of synthetic sports turf systems. Together, Shaw Sportexe and Medallion have already surpassed competitors as the leading resource for synthetic turf in the Southeast with a combined 9 million square feet of turf installed.

“What makes this relationship so impressive is that we’ve combined the best products with the best installers to form one of the strongest alliances in the turf business,” said Matt Broughton, President of Medallion. “There is undoubtedly no one more capable of delivering a more superior playing field.”

Both companies tout several high profile installations, including the likes of South Carolina State, Baltimore Ravens, Georgia Tech, University of Arkansas, Hendricks Motorsports and Camp Lejeune.

“Our partnership with Medallion is a solid move,” said Dan Clark, General Manager of Shaw's Turf Division. “Our core values are aligned, with integrity taking the forefront. We are confident, that as a combined entity, we will provide the best products and services to our customers in the Southeast.”
