Polytan surfaces, such as Poligras, LigaTurf, Rekortan and Laykold, are manufactured by our sister company, APT Asia Pacific, in Melbourne, Australia.

As the largest sports and recreational distribution facility in the southern hemisphere, APT Asia Pacific’s ISO-certified manufacturing plant produces over 100 varieties of synthetic turf. It is also the only synthetic turf manufacturer in Australia that produces its own yarn. Designed specifically for Australasian conditions, their yarn incorporates 24 unique components.

At Polytan, we maintain complete control over every aspect of the surface manufacturing process, including research and development and product innovation. This level of involvement allows us to customise, test, and continuously enhance our surfaces, setting us apart from our competitors. Our expertise lies in understanding the intricacies of how our surfaces are made, the materials used, and the reasons behind their superior quality.

To provide our customers with complete transparency and confidence, we invite them to visit our manufacturing facility and witness the creation of their surface firsthand. This level of access ensures trust and reinforces our commitment to delivering exceptional surfaces.
