The Story
In 2000, while still working for his father's construction materials company, Grant McKnight opened his own business, producing sand and soil mixes for golf courses. In essence, he married aspects of the two companies: the soil science of the golf business and the mixing tools of the construction materials industry. But way before any of the major league parks even became a possibility, he had to get his foot in the door somewhere. Turned out, Slippery Rock University would be the first field installed by DuraEdge and everything just kind of snowballed from there. So McKnight started working with big league groundskeepers. They needed a surface that could handle the rain, offer what he calls "true ball bounce," and also stand up to the non-baseball events. DuraEdge Products now counts 21 of MLB's 30 stadiums among its clients, including iconic ballparks such as PNC Park, AT&T Park and Wrigley Field.
