GTR Turf’s vision is focused on innovation to build the new generation synthetic turf sports fields that will significantly improve the quality of play, performance, and safety of athletes.
GTR executes their vision in accord with their mission to be the synthetic turf company that sets the standard of excellence in the industry.
The strategy of corporate responsibility and sustainable development of GTR TURF is linked to a commitment to install more ecological sports fields, healthier, safer and better balanced between the athletes, the environment, the practiced sport and its requirements.
For GTR, it is important to encourage all collaborators, through various actions, to live the commitment towards the customer, to understand that each of their actions, whether it is for the preparation of the base, the installation of the synthetic turf, the marking or the filling of the field, have a significant impact on the level of performance of the athletes, and that, consequently, they all play a very important role in the deployment of corporate responsibility of GTR TURF.
Under this perspective, since 1998, GTR has established a policy of excellence in each project, which enabled them to install more than 500 sports fields worldwide so far, be it for amateur or professional sports.
GTR’s strategic goal is to maintain high quality standards in each of their facilities and implement their knowledge, experience, expertise and the best practices gained from elite installations made for the NFL, MLS, CFL, NCAA and FIFA.
GTR will continue to invest in human capital, to attract the best talent available and to offer the best quality of synthetic turf and the unique products of Shaw Sports Turf.
