Act Global has announced that it has acquired the UBU Sports and Turfscape brands from Turf Industry Holdings.

UBU is best known as the synthetic turf currently used by 14 NFL teams (including the Houston Texans and NRG Stadium, host of Super Bowl LI), several NCAA programs and other venues throughout the U.S.

“Going forward, we’re very excited for UBU and Turfscape to join the Act Global family of brands,” said Turf Industry president Joe Vrankin. “Act Global is known for its focus on player safety, biomechanics and quality manufacturing, as well as being a strong partner to field owners, consultants, contractors and the industry as a whole. Most importantly, they’re a great organization with strong moral values and a culture to do the best job possible. In many ways, Act Global is perfectly poised to take the UBU and Turfscape brands to a new level.”

“The addition of the UBU and Turfscape brands will accelerate the growth of Act Global and our partners,” said John Baize, Act Global CEO. “Act Global’s pipeline of new turf technologies will be available in both our Xtreme Turf and UBU brands for the professional and amateur ranks, start-ing in 2017 and beyond. We appreciate the support of our valued employees and partners as we look forward to a bright future.”

Act Global is a leader in synthetic turf technology, with manufacturing facilities on three continents and sales in more than 80 countries.
