Albion, Idaho, United States: Grigg Brothers, a wholly owned subsidiary of Brandt Consolidated, Inc, is set to launch its plant nutrition products in Australia through Globe Australia, a division of Amgrow Group.
Grigg Brothers, one of the most respected brands in the turf business, manufactures and markets leading products for the golf and sports turf industry.
The brand launch encompasses more than 10 products. These products include Grigg’s proprietary liquid organic line of proven foliar nutrients, such as Gary’s Green, PK Plus, AminoPlex and Tuff Turf, as well as select granular fertilisers. The product line is expected to grow as demand ramps up.
Mark Grigg, President of Grigg Brothers, said: “Asia has been an important market for us for a long time. We are delighted to expand our Asian footprint to Australia.”
Grigg Brothers is represented internationally by Bruce Williams, formerly GCSAA USA President and Director of Golf Courses and Grounds at the Los Angeles Country Club. Williams will be assisting in product training and development in Australia.
