About Foley Company
The Foley Company started making grinders for the turf industry in 1926 and a new patented rear roller mounting system and all-visual gauging system was introduced in 2015 making set-up more efficient than ever. Foley’s grinders enable users to do quick touch-up spin grinding or return to OEM specifications, and this is one of many features that set Foley above the competition. In addition to leading the grinder industry, Foley Company completed the purchase of Air2G2, the industry leader of the soil air-injection process based in Jacksonville, FL in October 2020. Air2G2 is sold worldwide and is quite unique in its decompaction and soil profile health results. “Anytime you can inject good air in and force bad air out of the soil profile, it’s a winner every time. This acquisition allows Foley to offer turf health solutions for both above and below the turf, taking Foley to an exciting new level,” said Greg Turner – Director of Global Sales.
