Golf Ventures to become Helena Chemical dealer

Golf Ventures, headquartered in Lakeland, Florida, continues to develop expansion strategies for the company's core business in sports turf products in Florida and the Caribbean. For the past 18 years, Golf Ventures has been an Agent of Helena Chemical and related turf products throughout Florida, a relationship that has been successful and productive for both entities. Helena plant protectants and fertilizers have contributed greatly to Golf Ventures' success.

As a result, a mutual benefit plan has been established for Golf Ventures to become a Dealer for Helena Chemical in Florida and the Caribbean, enabling Helena to develop its own sales activities according to Florida's market conditions for turf products. Golf Ventures will continue to enhance the company's key focus - Customer Service.

Ron E. Jackson, Golf Ventures President, states "The updated Helena Dealer relationship is a positive strategy that allows us to continue to market high quality Helena products, while also enabling the growth of other turf-related chemicals, adjuvants and foliar products."

Recent examples of Golf Ventures' growth strategies include the addition of exclusive agreement to distribute COMAND and Sprinkler/Mosquito Magician, both industry leading products, in Florida and the Caribbean. Jackson adds Golf Ventures' golf course superintendent and non-golf clients will benefit by the company's expanded product lines and related technology resources. This strategy enables Golf Ventures to directly service its customers through ordering, timely shipping and direct billing.

Through the company's team of turf sales and support experts, combining more than 200 years of experience, Golf Ventures continues to serve as a premier provider and partner for golf and the recreational/professional sports turf industry.
