Beynon Continues to be the Surface of Choice for NCAA Track & Field Programs

Beynon Installs More Than 25 NCAA Synthetic Running Tracks in 2011

Hunt Valley, MD, September 24, 2011 --( With over 25 NCAA Division I, II and III track and field programs selecting Beynon Sports to design, manufacture and install their track surface in 2011 alone, not including the numerous NCAA institutions that have chosen Beynon Sports through their family of qualified distributors, the track community has realized that only Beynon Sports’ suite of track surfaces can provide the quality, workmanship and compatibility necessary to meet the multifaceted demands of today’s NCAA student-athletes.

In 2011 alone the University of Oregon, Mississippi State University, Texas State University, Stanford University, Grand Valley State University, Weber State University, the University of Virginia and countless others have all made the decision to have Beynon Sports’ high performance track and field athletic surfaces installed. Beynon was the surface of choice for three (3) of the top four (4) women’s teams and three (3) of the top five (5) men’s teams at the 2011 Division I NCAA Outdoor National Championships, proving once again that the name Beynon is synonymous with quality, safety and winning.

“We are ecstatic that schools within the NCAA continue to recognize and trust the quality that only Beynon can provide,” said Drew Beynon, Chief Operating Officer of Beynon Sports. “Knowing that so many top-level track and field programs are selecting Beynon validates the stringent quality control standards that we set for ourselves.”

Beynon Sports is committed to operational excellence in all aspects of their business – from R&D to contract management to completion and close-out, and Beynon has brought this single source responsibility to the forefront with its 50,000 square foot manufacturing plant in Maryland, regional operational hubs and local sales and service centers. Formulating, designing, producing and directly installing their own suite of products allows total quality control and continuous process improvement so that any concerns are addressed in an efficient, transparent and forthright manner.

With over 155 NCAA schools already running on a BSS surface, a wide range of track systems to choose from and the most IAAF certified surfaces of any supplier in the industry; Beynon continues to show why they are the track of choice within the NCAA and prestigious track and field programs across the country and around the globe.
