Bunker liner and water management specialist Capillary Concrete has appointed four new distributors to help improve its coverage across the world of golf. The new distributors cover various different regions, including the American Midwest, India and South Korea.
Chicago-based golf course supplier Clesens will represent Capillary Concrete across much of the Midwest, including Wisconsin, Minnesota, Michigan, Illinois, Indiana and Iowa. Established in 1961, Clesens is a well-regarded, family-owned supplier of turf care products and equipment.
New Korean partner Seowon Corporation was founded in 1978 and has installed over 70 per cent of the country’s golf course irrigation systems. The company already has partnerships with suppliers such as Rain Bird, Jacobsen and EZGO.
“Clesens is excited to bring Capillary Concrete, the market leading bunker liner, to the midwest as the company’s newest distributor. Clesens has been serving golf course superintendents in the midwest for over 50 years, introducing new products and technologies with the excellent customer service Clesens is known for,” said sales director Matt Kinnard.
Centaur Asia Pacific is already an established installer of Capillary Concrete across Asia, with offices in Hong Kong, Malaysia and Singapore. Now, the company is expanding its operations to include the Australian state of Queensland and the Pacific region of Melanesia. Existing Australian distributor Global Turf Projects will still cover the rest of the country.
Centaur general manager Danny Potter said: “Our expansion into the Australia market in 2020 was decided when exciting new opportunities were presented to us, none more significant than our agreement with Capillary Concrete for the Queensland and Melanesia markets. Being from Australia’s ‘Sunshine State’ myself, and starting my career as a greenkeeper at the Sanctuary Cove Resort, it has always been my goal to be an active member of the golf industry here again. Capillary Concrete has been a game changer for the golf world and the construction and maintenance of bunkers, and we can’t wait for everyone to see how well it handles the more severe Queensland weather.”
Finally, SGDC India, the subcontinent’s leading golf course construction and irrigation specialist has been appointed as Capillary Concrete’s distributor for the whole of India. SGDC has recently completed the country’s first two Capillary Concrete bunker installations, at Tarudhan Valley Golf Resort in Gurgaon and at the Karnataka Golf Association course in Bangalore.
SGDC India CEO Anit Malhotra said: “Around the globe, thousands of bunkers have been built and renovated with Capillary Concrete; we truly believe that Capillary Concrete can make a great impact in enhancing bunker quality through the support of regional distributors. We, as India’s foremost golf course Construction Company, felt the need to introduce Capillary Concrete to the Indian market where prospective customers will be able to understand the core advantage of Capillary Concrete bunkers in order to gain better and sustainable results.”
