WARRENVILLE, IL– SFHI, (Marketwired – March 24, 2016) – Sports Field Holdings, Inc. (OTCQB: SFHI) (“Sports Field” the “Company”), an innovative company engaged in the design, engineering and construction of eco-safe athletic facilities, today announced that the Company has been awarded a $5,825,520 purchase order from Richland Country School District One (“Richland One”) in Columbia, South Carolina for the creation or replacement of eight athletic fields within the school district over the next 18 months.
Sports Field’s Replicated Grass™ system won in a competitive open bid format based on a point rating system, beating out five major competitors. Although Sports Field’s bid was not the lowest, the look, feel and proximity to natural grass separated the Company from its competitors. We believe eco-safe alternatives like ours will continue to see greater adoption as industry awareness increases regarding the health hazards of toxic crumb rubber currently used in turf.
“This is a very symbolic victory for Sports Field. It is the largest purchase order in our Company’s history and confirms that our turn-key offering positions us as an up and coming leader in the synthetic turf industry. We commend Richland One for prioritizing the safety of their athletes and moving away from toxic crumb rubber fields,” commented Jeromy Olson, President and Chief Executive Officer.
