Teamturf was established in 2006 by Phil Lewis from Auckland and John Curtis from Sydney, each with 50% shareholdings. At that stage we were trading as Team Sports Surfaces Ltd, and in 2018 we re-branded the company to Teamturf to better reflect the diversity of our products. Prior to the formation of the business in 2006, Phil had been working in the NZ and Asian markets for the previous four years covering all areas of the synthetic turf industry, while John had worked in the Australian and Asian synthetic turf industry since 1992 and manufacturing in Sydney since 1997.
The Teamturf head office is located in Parnell, Auckland with a large warehousing facility in Onehunga. Teamturf has a network of established agents throughout New Zealand with a focus on supplying and installing artificial grass to the tennis, school multi-use court, playground, cricket, home and commercial landscaping markets. We have worked with many of our agents for a number of years and their geographical location means we can service the majority of New Zealand.
The early years for teamturf were focused on getting the business established and competing in the tennis, school and cricket markets. Within a few years it was clear the soccer/rugby market was beginning to grow in NZ and teamturf was successful in building 9 soccer or rugby facilities from 2013 to 2015 and was leading the market over this strong period of construction. In 2013 teamturf installed over 70,000sqm of synthetic turf all over the country. With the downturn in soccer/rugby projects teamturf has strengthened its position in the school and tennis markets while growing our ‘PLAY’ and ‘HOME’ markets.
Teamturf sources a full range of artificial turf surfaces from our manufacturing plant in Melbourne which is an AS/NZS ISO 9001: 2008 Quality Assured Manufacturer. Teamturf has an extensive stable of industry partners which enables us to develop innovative products experimenting with yarn and textile evolution, sports surface impact backing and the world’s best practice installation techniques. This is a core factor to our continued success in all areas of the artificial sports surfacing industry.
Teamturf is focused on quality at the right price, we finish every job to the highest quality standards and aim to exceed our customers’ expectations on every project.. Our philosopy is ‘do it once and do it right’, from the initial design to the final installation … quality from start to finish.
