I’m very proud to represent the Royal Grass® brand.”
“By appointing Wouter Jochemsen as Business Development Manager, Royal Grass® gives more substance to its leading position for high-end artificial grass in the Middle East. Our organization has clearly opted for a more local, on the ground presence in this strategic growth area.

At the same time, it will strengthen our global presence, adding to our existing Sales & Marketing offices in Asia and Europe. With one organization and one strong brand name, Royal Grass® offers everything under one roof: the most natural looking and high quality artificial grass, optimal customer and logistical services, local marketing support and the reliability of a global brand.”, says Emiel Arts, Director of Royal Grass®.
