ATLANTA, Ga. - Chattahoochee Turf Products, Inc., the Cobb, Georgia- based distributor of professional turfgrass maintenance products, has joined United Turf Alliance (UTA) in an ownership position.

Chattahoochee Turf Products, owned by Roger and Susan Myers, has been an independent dealer partner of UTA for three years. The company has primarily done business in Georgia, but will now expand into Alabama, Mississippi, Louisiana and the Florida Panhandle.

In making the announcement, UTA President Tim Zech says, “Chattahoochee Turf Products strengthens the alliance and our position in the Southeast. Roger’s familiarity with our ArmorTech and Optimizer product lines means the Chattahoochee Turf Products sales team can hit the ground running and quickly develop new business in their expanding market area.”        

Roger Myers views his ownership in UTA as an opportunity to provide his customers with more of the products they need.  “My experience with UTA tells me that taking my involvement to the next level will be advantageous for my customers, my employees and my company as a whole,” Myers said. “I look forward to what lies ahead.”

Incorporated in 2005, United Turf Alliance markets leading edge turf protection products under the ArmorTech and Optimizer names through its members and dealer partners. The alliance directs its efforts toward discriminating golf course superintendents and other turfgrass professionals who value relationships based on industry and product knowledge combined with excellent customer service.
