About Us

Message from Pioneer's President

Our life's work lies in the paint on your field - how it looks, how it went on, how it performs and comes off. We don't do paints for houses, boats or walls. We make paint, equipment and accessories that create durable, playable, healthy and great-looking fields. Nobody pursues field-marking excellence quite like Pioneer.

We have a vision to make marking and maintenance easier, more productive and friendlier to your community. To eliminate compromise. Our goal is to make sure your fields are a source of pride for your team and community.

The University of Pioneer is a commitment to constant learning and innovation. Our customers, academic partners and the EPA - and involvement with associations like the STMA, the Synthetic Turf Council, the Stadium Managers Association and the NIAAA -provide valuable knowledge and feedback. However, it is our relationship with you -which helps turn knowledge into innovation that impacts you on your turf - that really matters.

By choosing Pioneer, you are assured of getting high performance, innovative products and a team of dedicated people who, like you, are obsessed with making fields even better. Together we'll make the most of your investment in fields of excellence.

What's our Game Plan?

The concept of Pioneer Athletics is an exciting one. Customers, employees, advances in technology, opportunities for new product development, and the focus on environmental awareness are the fuel that drives our commitment to deliver the highest quality natural and synthetic turf field marking paints, striping machines, maintenance equipment, accessories, and antimicrobials in the industry.

Our objective is to reduce and eliminate the frustrations associated with athletic field painting and maintenance, while delivering a line of highly specialized products designed specifically for our industry.

Pioneer is the global leader, developer, researcher, and manufacturer of natural grass and synthetic turf field marking paints, for any sport, occasion, or special event. Our future success is dependent on building trusting relationships between our customers, employees, industry partners, affiliations, and our corporation.

Pioneer is committed to developing new and innovative technologies, products, and training programs with our customers' excitement, creativity, needs, and budget in mind. In an effort to promote environmental awareness, we will continue to make considerable contributions to the research and development of our Ultra-Friendly, VOC-free, and EPA recognized athletic field marking paint line and environmentally-friendly stripers.

In everything we do, the ingredients used to formulate our products will be chosen specifically to accommodate the needs, requirements, and well-being of our customers.
