Smart. Service. Solutions.

Advanced Turf Solutions (ATS) is a green industry distributor that provides fertilizer, pesticides, grass seed, ice melt, and more to professionals in the golf, lawn care, and sports turf markets. With 24 locations throughout the Midwest and beyond, we serve customers in Illinois, Indiana, Kansas, Kentucky, Michigan, Missouri, North Carolina, Ohio, Pennsylvania, South Carolina, Tennessee, Texas, Virginia, West Virginia, and Wisconsin.

Headquartered in Fishers, Indiana, ATS incorporated on October 1, 2001. The founding partners were driven by a passion to provide powerful products for customers with service second to none in the industry. Their philosophy is one that lives on in the core values of ATS today.

The initial vision to provide the golf market with fertilizers, pesticides, and grass seed has grown to encompass the lawn care and sports turf markets. Product offerings have expanded to include application and maintenance equipment, parts and accessories, infield mixes and conditioners, and even ice melt.

ATS is key employee-owned, which instills a deep sense of pride in every member of the ATS family. The sales team consists of more than a hundred industry experts who serve as consultants eager to share lessons learned from their experience. Most of them have a background as a golf course superintendent, sports field manager, or lawn care operator. They understand their customers’ challenges and support them in achieving success. ATS sales representatives are motivated by the relationships they build with their customers as friends, not just professionals. They provide second-to-none service rooted in integrity and backed by a strong support system.

This combination of service and solutions makes ATS the smart choice for your green industry needs.
