)-- After thirteen years of use on Detroit Country Day School’s first FieldTurf field, it was time to replace their outdoor field with a new surface – and the school picked FieldTurf once again for the job. After a thorough review of many other companies and products in the marketplace, the school’s administration and coaches were pleased to select FieldTurf again and continue the well established relationship.
“We looked at many different products in the industry and the same holds true today as it did more than a decade ago – nothing in the marketplace compares to what the FieldTurf product offers in terms of safety and playability,” said Detroit Country Day School Headmaster Glen Shilling. “When we originally decided to install FieldTurf on our Stadium Field, we expected an excellent level of service and product and that is exactly what we experienced over the last 13 years. We are excited to continue our longstanding relationship with the world leader in artificial turf.”
“We pride ourselves on delivering the very highest level of safety and playability in the industry and it means a lot to us to have Detroit Country Day School repeatedly display their confidence in FieldTurf’s service and products,” said FieldTurf President Eric Daliere. “We’ve very much enjoyed our 13 year relationship, and we look forward to continuing to provide the very best surfaces to the school for many more years to come.”
Detroit Country Day School also chose to install FieldTurf in their impressive new indoor athletic complex that will serve the football, boys and girls soccer, boys and girls lacrosse and field hockey teams.
