Hen­driks rolls out the green carpet worldwide

What the red carpet is to film stars, the green field is to soccer stars: Hen­driks rolled sod is grown for the most promi­nent sta­di­ums in the world with the help of Bauer irri­ga­tion technology.

Stade Bern­abeu in Madrid, Stade de France in Paris, Red Bull Arena in Leipzig, Allianz Arena in Munich, Ernst Happel Stadion Vienna, Ams­ter­dam Arena, Juven­tus Stadium Turin, Loko­mo­tiv Stadium in Moscow and count­less other large and small sta­di­ums around the world have one thing in common: rolled sod from Hen­driks in the Nether­lands. It lays the foun­da­tion for mas­ter­ful soccer matches. Four Hen­driks broth­ers in the third gen­er­a­tion began the cul­ti­va­tion and pro­duc­tion of sod in the year 1975. At the time, they had a modest five hectares avail­able, but they knew how to make optimal use of it.

Quality and innovation

500 soccer fields

Con­tin­u­ous invest­ments in quality and inno­va­tion – machines were devel­oped in-house, the employ­ees were highly trained – made the company one of the inter­na­tion­al leaders in this segment. In the mean­time, the family company Hen­driks Gras­zo­den Bw, one of the largest turf pro­duc­ers in Europe, has grown to over 350 hectares – the size of 500 soccer fields!

Hen­driks Gras­zo­den cul­ti­vates a large selec­tion of grass species on sandy soil within a radius of 20 kilo­me­ters around the farm. This forms an out­stand­ing basis for the pro­duc­tion of rolled sod. The team of 20 employ­ees, each of which has a spe­cial­ty, brings forth a premium product with quality that is guar­an­teed by strict German DIN and TÜV certification.

Rain­stars for the green carpet

The rolled sod pro­duc­tion takes place in sandy soil that is known for retain­ing little water. Water­log­ging would be absolute­ly coun­ter­pro­duc­tive, which is why the fre­quen­cy and dosing of the irri­ga­tion are essen­tial for the optimal growth of the plants. To ensure this, Hen­driks uti­lizes a total of ten Rain­stars and one Cen­ter­lin­er from Bauer. Reli­a­bil­i­ty, long service life and effi­cien­cy are the key fea­tures of the Bauer irri­ga­tion machines, which have once again proven them­selves at Hen­driks in the Nether­lands. This is why the Rain­stars will con­tin­ue to play a large role for the soccer stars of the world.
