Traveling to a trade show as an attendee or an exhibitor is a financial commitment that shows you are serious about the future of your company. GIE+EXPO continues to play a critical part in the growth of our company since our first show in 2003. Over the past nine years we have increased our product line from a self-propelled power edger to include power brooms, power rakes, brush cutters and plows. Most of the ideas for new products are based on direct feedback from current and future customers we speak to at GIE+EXPO. Please take a minute to visit the Turf Teq indoor and outdoor booths to see our full line of commercial-grade power equipment. All of our products are proudly manufactured in the United States of America.
