Grigg Brothers Re-brands as GRIGG
Revitalized GRIGG Brand Focuses on Science and Innovation that has been Grigg Brothers Hallmark
SPRINGFIELD, Illinois (September 18, 2017) – Grigg Brothers, the leading turf nutrition brand, is being re-branded as simply GRIGG.
With a modern, updated look, GRIGG will remain the premier golf and sports turf brand in the BRANDT product portfolio. BRANDT, who bought Grigg Brothers in 2014, is a leading manufacturer of specialty products for the turf and ornamental market.
The rebrand effort celebrates GRIGG’s commitment to science-based products, turf research and proven agronomic principles and embraces the research-driven approach that the Grigg family has created. GRIGG products are tested and validated with extensive university testing and GRIGG uses this research to educate turf managers and to establish best practice nutritional programs.
The rebranding includes a new website – www.grigg.co – that puts the company’s university trials and research, technical papers, nutrition programs and catalog at customers’ fingertips within a few clicks. It also includes a revamped social media presence on Facebook and on Twitter using the handle @GRIGGco.
“GRIGG has long been regarded as the premier turf nutrition line in the industry,” said BRANDT National Sales Director, John Guglielmi. “We felt the timing was right to update the brand and reinforce our commitment to turf science and innovation, while providing our customers with more access to the breadth of GRIGG’s information and resources.”
GRIGG was establish in 1992 by brothers Mark and Gary Grigg, who joined forces to put their combined entrepreneurial spirit, agronomic education and turf experience together to create cutting edge turf nutrition products. In 2014, BRANDT purchased GRIGG to expand its product offerings and footprint in the turf market. Mark and Gary continue to lead the GRIGG brand.
A leading agricultural company, BRANDT consists of three divisions—Specialty Formulations, Retail Agronomy and Dealer Support—serving growers around the globe. Founded in 1953 by Glen Brandt and his sister Evelyn Brandt Thomas to help Illinois farmers adopt new and profitable technologies, the company has experienced aggressive growth under the leadership of President and CEO Rick Brandt. Innovation, technology and strong customer service are a few of the core beliefs that drive BRANDT today. BRANDT’s focus is providing the products and services that give growers the best opportunity for maximum return while building a stronger, healthier and more abundant food supply.
