EDEL ELITE STRIKES AGAIN Wins Second Contract In As Many Months

 ROME, N.Y., June 14 /PRNewswire/ -- In only its ninth month of operation, Edel Grass America was awarded a second contract for installation of its Edel Elite artificial turf system. Edel's sand-filled turf system will be one component of a $3 million renovation at Rome Free Academy here. After meeting specifications set forth by the school and its architectural firm that determined the fledgling company to be a qualified bidder, Edel Grass America bid as a subcontractor to Charles A. Gaetano Construction Corporation of Utica, N.Y., chosen general contractor for the project.
 In April, Edel Grass America secured a contract with the Garland Independent School District of Garland, Texas, to install its Edel Elite knitted nylon system at Williams Stadium there.
 Jerry Dick handled the Rome transaction for Edel Grass. Dick has over fifteen years of varied experience in the construction industry, including eight years of expertise in sand-filled artificial turf systems.
 "I'm thrilled to be part of this young, aggressive company that brings the 75 years' experience of its parent company to the North American market," declared Dick. "Our early success is very encouraging to us as well as to our potential buyers. It further establishes Edel Grass as a viable, preferable choice for artificial turf in terms of quality and price."
 Edel Grass America, headquartered in Charlotte, North Carolina, is a wholly owned subsidiary of Edel Carpet of Holland. Edel Carpet was founded in 1918 and entered the European synthetic turf market in 1984. With its September 1992 arrival in North America, Edel Grass offers a complete line of artificial turf for athletic playing surfaces, including a knitted nylon system that was previously available only with Balsam.
 "We are pleased to be working with Edel Grass America on the Rome Free Academy project and look forward to a good working relationship with Edel," said William C. Gaetano, vice president of Charles A. Gaetano Construction Corporation, whose clients include Metropolitan Life Insurance, Bus Industries of America, Colgate University, and Hamilton College, where Gaetano is currently remodeling the hockey rink. "This is a challenge and a real partnering project, and we are eager to see the end result of their work."
 Edel Grass operates worldwide and has North American offices in North Carolina, Canada, Michigan, Washington, and Oklahoma. Harry "Duke" Oxford, formerly with Omniturf and Balsam, is CEO.
