SIS Pitches Enjoy Dominant Year Following Key Projects

Fri 24th Feb 2017 | Football Stadiums & Facilities

Sports pitch-specialists SIS Pitches enjoyed a standout year in 2016, as a number of prestigious projects helped to propel the company to even greater heights.

With a group turnover exceeding £50 million, SIS Pitches is one of the world’s largest sports pitch companies, and is also unique in its ability to design, build, manufacture, install and maintain natural grass, synthetic turf and hybrid pitches. 

2016 was a year of investment with new tufting lines installed in the factory, new SISGrass machines capable of completing a full size field in five days commissioned, and new site equipment purchased. 

Not only were more square metres of synthetic turf manufactured in the Cumbrian plant, SIS Pitches installed more pitches than in any previous calendar year.

The most prestigious project completed throughout the year was the Luzhniki Stadium, Moscow, where the opening match and final of the 2018 World Cup will be played. Incorporating technologically advanced SISGrass as well as the SISAir under-soil heating and cooling system, SIS Pitches has ensured perfect playing conditions for the most famous football event in the world. 

The company has also agreed contracts to complete work for three more of the twelve stadiums to be used at the tournament.

SISGrass fields were completed for clients such as Chelsea, Derby County, Besiktas and Athletic Bilbao whilst the company also installed a new SISGrass hybrid pitch at AFC Bournemouth’s Vitality Stadium, making Premier league history in the process.

2016 was a year of many “firsts” for SIS Pitches. In Manchester, a £2.2m project for the University, featuring two hockey pitches, one rugby and one football field, was completed over a 42-week construction period, culminating in winning the prestigious SAPCA 2016 Award for Excellence. 

In London, SIS Pitches upgraded the SISTurf pitch for English and European rugby champions Saracens, whilst SIS Pitches also constructed two RFU funded projects at Aylesbury and Preston Grasshoppers. 

SIS Pitches also opened a new office in Ireland as the company continued its expansion following the fresh influx of projects.

Such growth is unable to be achieved without a strong company structure and teamwork. Investment in additional staff has been careful and thorough, with personal characteristics and individual skill-sets the top of the recruitment agenda. 

With company offices in Ireland, Holland, Turkey, Russia and the UAE, SIS Pitches has continued its international expansion. A key development during the year has been a change in brand identity, as shown best in the new SIS Pitches website. Awareness of the company, its areas of expertise and successes are more visible than previously. 

The goal now is to build on the successes from 2016 and to have an even better 2017.
