The Turfix Story
Almost 20 years ago, Chuck Albright began his foray into the artificial turf business by selling football fields.
Chuck was involved with a few different manufacturers during this time and it didn’t take long before he began to see a common thread. All of these artificial turf football fields were being sold as “maintenance free.”
But that wasn’t the case. Artificial turf fields are incredibly low maintenance, but low maintenance doesn’t mean no maintenance.
Chuck knew these all of these fields being installed needed to be taken care of to live their longest and best life and also to ensure player safety. He saw a need in the artificial turf industry for a company that not only installed artificial turf, but also provided anything and everything else clients may need after the installation. This vision for a full-service artificial turf company that provides installation, maintenance, repairs, restorations, and more is now Turfix.
Chuck brought his son Troy Albright on board, who was in the landscaping business at the time, and they started out doing everything themselves, from the installations to the cleaning to the repairs. As their reputation for going above and beyond started growing, so did business.
Today, Turfix is recognized as the Midwest’s leading artificial turf company.
