April 8, 2015 – Toro has announced that it has been selected by the U.S. Army Installation Management Command (IMCOM) to provide golf course maintenance equipment to help maintain nearly 50 golf facilities at installations worldwide. The recent contract award renews a relationship with the U.S. Army that began in 2009.
“We are extremely honored to have been chosen by the U.S. Army to continue providing turf equipment and support to help create the best course conditions for members of the Armed Forces and their families to enjoy,” said Darren Redetzke, vice president of Toro’s Commercial Business. “These facilities provide an environment for individuals and families to come together, and we are excited to contribute to that experience.”
Established in 1984, IMCOM’s Family and Morale, Welfare and Recreation branch provides guidance and oversight for Army garrison programs and services which benefit Soldiers, Families, Retirees and civilians world-wide. MWR provides them the comfort and recreational activities, which enhance their lives away from home. MWR is an integral part of the Army’s Soldier for Life enterprise which includes golf facilities on installations in the United States, Germany, Japan and Korea.
