Terraplas has appointed Alex Stead as its new global business development director.
Following 11 years with market leading hybrid turf manufacturer, GrassMaster, Stead is now keen to utilise his skills in the stadium market to nurture and expand the international status of Terraplas.
Terraplas chairman Robert Else said:
The fact that Alex has joined us further strengthens our management team and accordingly the overall structure of Terraplas. His extensive knowledge of ‘hybrid turf systems’, which interface so well with Terraplas, will be a huge asset to the company, its customers and representatives around the world.
The reputation of Terraplas is synonymous with quality stadium turf protection.
As such, an opportunity within this prestige company with strong leadership and the ability to create his own ‘niche’, offered the challenges for development Stead realised that he was looking for. He said:
I’m delighted to be joining the team at Terraplas. I have gained a lot of knowledge of their fantastic range of products during my time at GrassMaster and I see how essential Terraplas is to the modern stadium business model. I’m looking forward to the new challenge and working with another industry leading business.
2019 has started strongly for Terraplas, with three ice conversion systems going out to the USA and Uzbekistan, together with a high-profile turf protection system order and numerous significant enquiries.
