Spiio Inc., Palo Alto, California, partnered with Ewing Irrigation & Landscape Supply as an authorized distributor of Spiio’s wireless soil sensors into the U.S. golf market. The move builds on the recent announcement from Spiio of an additional $1.6 million round of investor funding used to strengthen the product development team and to move forward with innovation projects.
“We’re excited to offer Spiio to our customers as a solution to help save them time and resources while still creating optimal conditions,” says Brian Hurley, Ewing’s national golf sales manager. “It’s a great example of how technology continues to drive and innovate the turf industry.”
“Bringing on Ewing as a distributor greatly increases our ability to introduce our Spiio technology to golf customers in the Northeastern, Southeastern, and Southwestern U.S.,” says Chris Thorup, co-founder and chief commercial officer of Spiio. “Our Spiio team will continue to drive our sales and marketing efforts worldwide, and through our partnership with Ewing we gain the expertise of 24 more sales professionals with a combined 100-plus years of experience in the golf industry.”
