Saltex and Condor Grass enter into strategic partnership


Condor Grass and Saltex have extended their existing cooperation, and entered into a strategic

partnership for the manufacturing and distribution of certified artificial grass systems. Aim of the

agreement is to strengthen the value proposition of both companies by cross-linking the product

portfolios and resources. The agreement offers the possibility to offer a broader choice of products in

order to meet changing market demands.


Saltex is renowned as innovative, solid Scandinavian manufacturer of high-end sports pitches, and

FIFA preferred producer since 2011. Saltex has built a great number of football turf pitches in the

Nordics and across the globe over the past 30 years.


Condor Grass, the youngest division within the Condor Group, serves a number of different global

markets and segments including artificial grass for landscaping, non-fill football, tennis and field

hockey. Condor Grass greatly benefits from the infrastructure that the Condor Group provides as

carpet manufacturer, resulting in quality products at competitive prices.


Combining Dutch operational excellence with innovative Scandinavian design results in a highly

efficient manufacturing program with a broad artificial grass product range, and the primary goal to

service new and existing clients of both companies even better in future.
