Artificial turf got its final breakthrough when the 3rd generation technology was introduced in the late half of the nineties. Until then, artificial turf was used widely in e.g. tennis courts and fields for American football and baseball but because the ball behaviour was quite different from that of natural turf, it was not yet considered suitable for soccer on a high level. This changed completely with the introduction of the 3rd Generation technology where rubber granulate was used as infill and thereby improved ball rebound and running characteristics.
This has lead to the complete acceptance by all the important football organisations like FIFA and UEFA, and artificial turf is now recommended for use on all levels, e.g. Champions League and the World Cup.
In a typical artificial turf, Genan rubber granulate contributes to both the infill layer (Fine, Fine-mix or Medium) as well as the manufacturing of the elastic layer, no matter whether it is built up on site (in-situ) or from prefab mats.
Genan Holding A/S has today presented its first annual report since a radical reconstruction was initiated in the beginning of 2015. The core business of the group shows sound profit performance, but the 2015 annual report is negatively affected by considerable impairment.
Genan Holding A/S har i dag aflagt sit første årsregnskab siden en omfattende rekonstruktion blev iværksat i starten af 2015. Koncernens kerneforretning udviser en fornuftig indtjening, men årsregnskabet i 2015 er negativt påvirket af store nedskrivninger.
