Our History

A tradition of advancing quality

ADVANCED POLYMER TECHNOLOGY (APT) was founded in 1994, the staple products traditionally have been recreational coatings such as those for tracks and tennis courts, protective coatings to reduce wear on buildings and structures, and artificial turf products for low maintenance sports fields. However, custom-made products can be designed and manufactured to suit the needs of special cases.

From its creation, APT has realized the importance of easy-to-maintain, high-quality products. As time went on, more and more environmentally-safe components were integrated into product manufacture to also reduce environmental impact as much as possible.

APT is now the leading manufacturer of polyurethane-based materials, acrylic coatings and synthetic turf products. From the London Olympic stadiums to your own backyard, we provide people around the world with safe, reliable, and high-performing protective and recreational products.

We continue to improve and expand our product line to keep up with the highest industry standards and, more importantly, the needs of our customers. With two ISO-certified manufacturing facilities and four global sales offices, the APT Group services the needs of the construction and chemical industries worldwide. APT utilises its ISO 9001 Quality Management System to constantly review and improve its business procedures.

This chemical knowledge is a crucial part of Sport Group’s ‘Trust the Chain’ model. APT makes all the components and tailors them for our products. This integration, control and knowledge sharing results in the exceptional quality our brands deliver time after time.
