D & K Products recently joined United Turf Alliance as its newest owner. Based in Des Moines, Iowa, D & K Products serves customers in Iowa, Nebraska, and Central Illinois.
Steve Krantz founded D & K Products out of his home in 1981. More than forty years later, D & K Products now has five locations and 30 employees. The company carries a full line of quality turf products for golf courses, lawn care companies, and sports fields. D & K Products’ new ownership in UTA will help align the company with other distributors that share its vision and values.
“We look forward to working with UTA to advance the industry, and we believe our membership in UTA will help advance our presence in the industry as well,” said D & K Products President Doug Krantz, son of Founder Steve Krantz. “We feel especially confident in this move because it’s clear that our organizations operate under the same principles.”
The addition of D & K Products makes the second new UTA owner in the past two months, following the announcement of Triangle Chemical Company joining UTA in May. UTA now has eight owners serving turf professionals across the country.
“We’re thrilled with the recent growth of UTA,” said Nick Strain, CEO of UTA. “As we add new owners, we have greater opportunities to support the hardworking turf pros keeping America’s green spaces healthy.”
