Merger Announcement

Eco TempLine & Missouri Turf Paint Merge Operations

Representatives from Eco TempLine and Missouri Turf Paint announced this week that the two companies have merged.

Eco TempLine is a leader in the synthetic turf field marking paint industry – having invented the industry’s original removable paint formulation. Missouri Turf Paint has a long history of manufacturing high quality natural grass field marking paints and has been featured in 33 Super Bowls. The merger is a result of Eco TempLine owners’, Mark and Peg Cheirrett, decision to retire.

“We will miss the excitement of making coatings for the athletic industry and working with the fine folks that we’ve been proud to count as customers. But after entering our 70s, we’re ready for different challenges”, the Cheirrett’s said in a joint statement.

Missouri Turf Paint spokesperson Jon Graves stated, “we look forward to continuing to provide the same commitment to customer service and superior products that Eco TempLine has provided customers for the past 20 years.”

The newly merged company will focus on providing a full palate of field marking supplies to the sports turf industry. All company operations will be handled in Kansas City at Missouri Turf Paint’s existing facility.
