About Us

The purpose of the company was to assist the turf industry by doing

specialist work with

  • Hollowtyning,

Cup. i.e.

Over the past few years, myself and other company members have been visiting

various soccer fields in Europe and England so as to be able to construct, maintain

and present a World class playing surface.

Reference from STRI World Cup Special Edition 250:

The main contractors, Albert Oberholzer (aka Obie), and their staff were a great

pleasure to have dealings with. They were responsible for producing all of the World

Cup pitches, including the TBC pitches throughout South Africa.

They were truly professional and most courteous.
