Local Company to Work on Pendleton Recreation Fields

Anderson Observer Reports

The Pendleton Recreation Association announced the Anderson County global business, Specialized Turf Equipment Company (STEC Pronounced [ST-ECK]) is making their playing fields safer and equal to their competition.

STEC, an the industry leader in Specialized Turf Equipment distribution, is putting their expertise and manpower to work in their backyard.  They will be renovating the infields of the three ball fields so they will lay level and help drainage and improve safety for players.  The company will be improving the designated football area by aerating and top dressing in order to have noticeable improvement by the fall season.  

“I am excited to see local people and businesses getting involved and giving back to their community," Brett Sanders, County Council District 4 representative. "This is great for the Town of Pendleton and Anderson County District 4. STEC is a great company and thank you to David Taylor and his team for all their hard work.”

The Pendleton Recreation Association donated $2,500 for the sand and STEC is donating the additional $10,000 of seed, fertilizer, equipment and labor costs.

“This is great for the Pendleton Area, we have been waiting for 6 or 7 years to have this done," said Pendleton Recreation Association President, Billy Wheeler. "With our budget of $4,000 a year from the town we haven’t been able to do it. This will help with runoff and make our fields safer for our kids.”
