John B. Giraud
With over 46 years in the international supply of silica sands and concrete products, John is widely recognized as the industry expert for synthetic turf infill for sports field and residential and commercial markets.
As a former co-owner of the Target Group of Companies (now members of the QUIKRETE® Group) John travelled the world buying and selling quality sand products. John became involved at the inception of the synthetic turf wave in the 60’s as it swept across North America and Europe. John was instrumental in the development of the original (& still most widely used) silica sand infill spec for synthetic turf. In 2002 he established Target Technologies and over the years grew the company to be the leader in synthetic turf infill products. A dynamic and genuine person, John has received government certificates for his work in protecting the environment. John has been instrumental in the development of our environmental products which include a world-wide synthetic turf recycling program.
John was elected Chairman of the Board of the Synthetic Turf Council in 2010, and re-elected for a second term in 2011. John will be the longest standing member on the board. Click below for John’s full profile.
