AQUA SO2 looks to grow in golf market

GRASS VALLEY, Calif. — AQUA S02, a manufacturer of sulfur burners that control water pH and improve soil health, is set to gain national exposure in the golf market following it alliance with pump station manufacturer Flowtronex.

Even before the agreement, however, the small company had been growing steadily. It recently installed a system at the Old Course in St. Andrews, Scotland and added two high-profile technical advisors to its staff.

George Frye, former superintendent at the Ocean Course in Kiawah Island, S.C. has joined the staff as the vice president for East Coast operations and Carl King, former superintendent at LaQuinta Country Club, is handling sales in southern California. According to company president Jim Webb, the company is also working to add a soil management injector that would provide calcium, gypsum and other soil amendments through the irrigation system.
