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.
