Grassports Australia acquires the William Loud company

Grassports Australia acquires the William Loud company
July 6, 2017

Leading synthetic surfaces supplier and installer Grassports Australian has purchased the business of the William Loud company.

Grassports Australia Managing Director Bernard Evans describes the acquisition as “an exciting development for Grassports Australia, our customers and the customers of William Loud, as we continue to expand our team.”

Grassports Australia provide synthetic grass and hardcourt surfaces for sports fields, tennis courts, multipurpose learning and play spaces, all customised to client needs.

From a single backyard tennis court to an international football complex certified by world governing body FIFA, Grassports offer an Australian made, specialised range of synthetic sports surfaces for students, families, sports people and performance athletes.

The acquisition of William Loud brings a wealth of experience to the Grassports Australia team, extending its already broad skills base.

Like Grassports Australia, William Loud specialises in sporting surfaces for tennis, netball, hockey and athletics facilities.

They also have expertise in civil projects including rubber softfall playspaces.

Evans explains “with a business heritage of 45 years, Grassports Australia is proud to continue the William Loud 140 year business journey.”

Evans concludes “we will continue to supply the same level of exemplary service to our existing and new William Loud customers and we look forward to providing healthy and fun environments for active people in the future.”

Grassports Australia are certified to lay surfaces that are compliant with international sporting bodies including FIH, ITF, IRB, World Bowls and FIFA.
