Nouwens Carpets will be moving into the area of sports and landscape turf following their new partnership with Fintrex and FieldTurf. FieldTurf is a division of Tarkett Sports, part of the Tarkett Group. Nouwens, whose factory is based in the Free State, has partnered with FieldTurf for the license and manufacturing of their sports and landscape products for South Africa and adjacent markets.

Fintrex was established in 1986 and is a recognised leader in the synthetic sports surfaces market in Southern Africa. Fintrex is equipped with their own factory-trained local team – able and competent to install, repair and undertake maintenance for all sports surfaces. Fintrex has partnered with FieldTurf to distribute its sports products in South Africa, adding over 85 years of experience in carpet production and synthetic sports surfacing. Nouwens has been a leader in the carpet industry since 1962 and the company is renowned for their technical expertise and proudly South African heritage.

Ian Tittershill, FieldTurf’s Vice-President of International Sales, says the addition of Nouwens Carpets and Fintrex adds critical capabilities for future growth in South Africa.

“Working with these well respected companies allows us to deliver our solutions effectively in South Africa and adjacent markets,” says Ian.

Oscar Grobler, Chairman of Nouwens Carpets, added, “This partnership with FieldTurf is one of many exciting initiatives lined up in 2017 for Nouwens that will see our company at the forefront of innovation and development. Not only does this collaboration allow us to expand into a whole new market, it also provides a stepping stone towards becoming South Africa’s leader in the soft flooring industry. This forms part of our ongoing strategy to remain a world-class company in terms of innovation and forming alliances with strategic international partners.”
