AN INCREDIBLE STORY

Our journey began when the company was formed in 1998 from the merger of two successful international synthetic sports industry leaders to launch Sports Technology International. Better known as STI this is where the incredible story began to set us on the path to becoming the leader in the design, manufacturer and construction of premium sports facilities and synthetic sporting surfaces worldwide.

With Advanced Polymer Technology Australasia (APTA) controlling the manufacturing division, and STI the construction activities, the enigmatic and symbiotic nature of the business produced success after success, making STI the market leaders in synthetic sports surfaces.

The combination of the science of the product and the technical skill of specialist teams in the design and delivery of sustainable, innovative facilities, has brought undeniable success. Projects range from remote regional locations all the way through to the Olympic Games.

In 2008, the company embarked on the next page of the journey, joining the Sport Group and strategically aligning themselves with the marketing leading European synthetic sports surfacing company, Polytan. Official recognition was announced in 2014 to formalise the close collaboration by rebranding to Polytan with an exciting future ahead for this innovative company.
