Featured Install: Galveston Softball and Baseball

Recently Ball High School in Galveston, TX contracted with Sporturf dealer EnviroTurf to install a synthetic turf field on their softball and baseball fields.

Galveston Ball High School is a nationally known leader in education driven by a culture of excellence through smaller learning communities, community partnerships and college and career ready students.

That being said, it was clear that Ball High School wanted the best for their student athletes and that is why they reached out EnviroTurf and Sporturf respectively. They chose Sporturf’s TrueGrass product for these installs. The school even opted to have a customized logo created by our AquaFab department and have it installed into their field along with the turf.

Sporturf’s TrueGrass is a premium athletic field product that has been tried and tested in the toughest conditions. This product also features the longest lasting fiber available, which makes it ideal for indoor and outdoor athletic fields.

Sporturf dealer EnviroTurf was established in 2006 with a goal of providing superior products that are durable, cost-efficient and aesthetically pleasing while maintaining a commitment to supplying the safest surface possible.

U.S. Customs and Border Protection Investigating Synthetic Turf Importers Who Evade Tariffs

FOREST HILL, Md.Dec. 4, 2018 /PRNewswire/ — The Synthetic Turf Council (STC) has learned that U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) is investigating U.S. importers of synthetic turf that may be willfully evading tariffs placed on synthetic or artificial turf.

Based on publicly available information, the STC and industry participants have filed hundreds of e-Allegation violations that question whether the synthetic turf that is being imported into the U.S. is properly coded and subject to tariffs. CBP is using this data and other information in order to conduct its investigation.

According to CBP, e-Allegations provide a means for the public to report to CBP any suspected violations of trade laws or regulations related to the importation of goods into the U.S. These types of violations include misclassification of merchandise, false country of origin markings, health and safety issues, valuation issues and intellectual property rights.

The STC has also learned that as new tariffs on synthetic turf have been put in place, shipping companies have accelerated their marketing efforts by offering to relabel containers through intermediate destinations (called ‘transshipping’) to hide the true country of origin. This involves taking a shipment for a fee from a country that has a tariff in place, unloading it in a country that does not, repacking and shipping the container to the U.S. The result obfuscates the country of origin and determination of tariffs.
