Allturf Ltd., a portfolio company of Massey Capital, acquires Precision Turf Technologies Inc.
OAKVILLE, ON December 13, 2018 – Allturf Ltd., a portfolio company of MC Massey Capital Holdings Inc., announces the acquisition of the assets and ongoing business of Precision Turf Technologies (“PTT”). The two companies will work together starting in January of 2019. Precision Turf Technologies will now be called Allturf Precision Technologies (APT). Both companies feel there are operational synergies and significant opportunities to supply their customer bases with enhanced services and improved spray solutions.
John Alpaugh, President of Allturf Ltd welcomed Wray Mason and said: “We are very excited to have Wray Mason on board. His experience and expertise in sprayer design and problem solving is unparalleled, and certainly well established. As we look to provide our customers with better service and solutions in all aspects of turf management, it is essential that we work with industry experts to provide only best-in-class solutions. Wray Mason has been doing exactly that for nearly 20 years.”
Precision Turf Technologies has seen impressive growth in the past few years, and more recently with the introduction of GPS guided spray units. This growth has stretched the resources of PTT to their maximum, so a merger was a great solution, as expressed by Wray Mason, owner of PTT. “Quite simply I can’t keep up with the demand. I do not want to let my customers down. My alignment with Allturf really is the best of both worlds for me. I can focus on my customer calls and Allturf can supply me with administration and office support while also providing me with resources to train more service technicians. It is going to be very busy but I am excited about the potential to watch my business grow from my original concept into an important part of the turf industry.”
As a first step APT is immediately hiring two more service technicians in Ontario.
Allturf Ltd. is also a “sister-company” to M.K. Rittenhouse, Canada’s largest supplier of sprayer parts and components to the lawncare and turf industry. The affiliation of PTT and M.K. Rittenhouse will create a level of spray knowledge and resources for the turf, lawn & garden and grower industries unmatched anywhere in North-America.
Allturf Ltd. specializes in the distribution of turf maintenance products (fungicides, herbicides, seed, nutrition, fertilizers, etc.) and related accessories primarily to the golf turf industry. Allturf predominantly services golf courses across Ontario, including the majority of the most renowned courses in the province.
