About Us

We are an R&D company that uses science and data to create products that produce a safer and cooler artificial turf sports surface for athletes of all levels.

WE don’t make turf. We make it awesome.

Our focus 

Pure and simple? Athletes. Their safety. Their performance. 

When we say “Improving the field of play”, we mean not just the field itself, but the whole industry. We thrive on finding higher performance, more sustainable solutions to products used in our industry. It’s why we are educators and students at the same time, constantly searching for knowledge that can make us better. We are innovators who constantly raise the bar for athlete safety and performance. We don’t make turf, we make turf the best it can be.  

For a long time, the artificial turf industry was represented by laying a plastic carpet directly over rock. It was the repository for old tires that were ground up and used as infill. But now we see the downsides – super hot fields, microplastics in our waterways, higher rates of injuries than on natural grass.  An athletic field is not just a big green patch. It’s where our youth builds life skills, where parents watch their kids in action, where teams are built.  At Brock, we take the sports field seriously. And through that commitment, we can now create artificial turf fields that are as good as a great natural grass field. Maybe someday even better. 

We also believe in transparency, which is why we put so much research on this website. We believe that knowledge is for everyone, and we can do more good together than apart.
