CINCINNATI, Aug. 31, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- USGreentech has announced the promotion of Valerie Webster to role of president of USGreentech, a company focused on non-rubber infills for synthetic turf. USGreentech is a division of The Motz Corporation, a multi-faceted company focused on natural and synthetic turf sports and landscape systems. Webster, formerly CFO of The Motz Corporation, was promoted to this position by Joe Motz, CEO of The Motz Corporation. According to Motz, "Valerie's fiscal management expertise and strategic focus, along with her bold and inclusive leadership style make her ideally suited for this critical leadership role during this window of opportunity. The market is demanding environmentally safe and high performing, alternative infills for synthetic turf. Gone are the days when crumb rubber was the only option that facility owners wanted or could select."
To meet that demand, USGreentech is quickly ramping up its team by adding sales positions in key markets across the country. "I'm honored and excited about the significant potential ahead for our company. I look forward to continue to work closely with General Manager, Adam Coleman, and the rest of the talented team to continue to grow USG business and increase the value proposition for our stakeholders," Webster said.
USGreentech develops and delivers to the market environmentally-friendly, non-rubber infills for artificial turf used in both sports and landscape applications. Its flagship product, Envirofill, consists of round, acrylic-coated sand grains that resist compaction and contain Microban antimicrobial technology to inhibit bacteria, mold and mildew. The infill is completely reusable for multiple lifecycles, saving field owners substantial costs.
A new organic infill product will be launched later this year. These progressive infill products are in increasing demand as rubber infill is falling out of favor across the country. Two of the unsolved issues in the industry are surface heat and the field's end-of-life disposal. Artificial turf fields get very hot in the summer which can wear down athletes. When these fields are replaced, much of the 500,000lbs of material is taken to the landfill. This new organic infill will solve both of these issues.
