HYBRID SUBSTRATES MADE IN FRANCE
A production and research site to meet the requirements of the top level
The Natural Grass Production and Research Center, based in Milly-la-Forêt in Essonne (91), is unique: it is the only fully automated production site for hybrid turf substrates. The site enables the patented AirFibr technology mix to be produced at industrial scale. To guarantee the same level of top quality to the major clubs, the homogeneity of the substrate is continuously monitored. The site currently covers one hectare, but will double in size by 2022/23 to meet the growing needs of the market.
A STATE-OF-THE-ART PLANT
Continuous and controlled homogeneity of the substrate
A location in Essonne
Natural Grass chose Essonne as the location for its industrial investment project. Production costs and reduced environmental impact were key criteria in the final decision.
In an optics of short circuits, the production site is located at less than 500m from the quarry where the sand of AirFibr is extracted. As for the cork, it comes exclusively from forests certified for their sustainable management.
The Natural Grass company is involved on a daily basis in the economic dynamics of the Essonne region, in collaboration with all the local institutional and economic bodies. The company has made its site the epicenter for its teams of Research and Development, production of course, but also construction and maintenance. We recruit our teams from all over the Ile-de-France region and create about ten new jobs in the area each year.
