Turf-Tec International
Company History

Turf-Tec International is the leading manufacturer of diagnostic turfgrass tools and environmental test equipment in the world.  We invent, design and manufacture Soil Samplers, Moisture Meters, Infiltration Test equipment and many other diagnostic tools.

Turf-Tec International was started by the late Tom Mascaro in 1976 to manufacture tools that would benefit the Golf Course Superintendents and Sports Turf Managers in their everyday maintenance. Turf-Tec International is now headed by John Mascaro, who joined the company in 1987 and is Tom's son who is carrying on the family tradition of introducing innovative tools to aid the superintendent.  John is also well known for writing the "John Mascaro's Photo Quiz" in Golf Course Management Magazine, which is one of the most respected trade publications in the world of Golf Course Management and the official publication of the Golf Course Superintendents Association of America (GCSAA).  This monthly feature is a photographic question and answer section with photos of common turfgrass problems and their sometimes surprising answers.  The article "John Mascaro's Photo Quiz" also is run in the official publication of the Sports Turf Managers Association of America (STMA) called SportsTurf Magazine.

 Tom Mascaro was best known as the inventor of the Aerifier in 1946 and the Verti-Cut in 1955. These inventions have become standard management practices on every golf course and athletic field in the world.

Among them were the United States Green Section Award, Golf Course Superintendents Association's Distinguished Service Award and the Lifetime Achievement Award from the Sports Turf Managers Association. There is even a Museum on the grounds of Penn State University named the Mascaro/Steiniger Turfgrass Equipment Museum named after Tom Mascaro and his long time superintendent friend Eb Steiniger.

With Tom's insight and John's direction, Turf-Tec International has developed a line of diagnostic instruments for turf that until now were only available to researchers at Universities. These instruments are simple to use yet give meaningful results. These diagnostic tools are used to maintain healthy turfgrass, lawns, golf courses and sports fields. We are also developing new technology for the engineering and environmental sector to preserve our most precious resource, water.

Turf-Tec International is committed to developing new products and new techniques to keep turf healthy based upon the time proven methods of finding out the cause of problems rather then treating the symptoms.

Our products are the highest quality and fully warranted.
