The Aspen Investments family of companies, including GLT, HRC, TSP, and Aspen Outdoors, announced a license agreement as the exclusive distributor of the CoreMax48, an aeration core collection unit invented by western Pennsylvania superintendent John Shaw.  

The unit will be available in all United States regions exclusively through Aspen Investments at their distribution locations over the coming months. The CoreMax48 design collects cores without them touching the ground, saving maintenance crews from constant shoveling. Recuperative capacity of the turf is enhanced, accelerating the return of playable conditions. The CoreMax48 can back up on golf greens and navigate most architectural undulations.

“The CoreMax48 is a highly innovative aeration attachment that we’re thrilled to offer to our customers,” Aspen Investments Chief Business Officer Keith Montgomery said. “Aeration is a crucial process for maintaining healthy, oxygenated turf, and we’re glad we can deliver the CoreMax48 as a solution for our customers to help them be successful.”

“The CoreMax48 is a truly innovative piece of equipment that saves hours of labor and delivers outstanding agronomic goals for golf courses across the nation,” added Shaw, the inventor and patent holder. “With Aspen Investments’ wealth of agronomic success and vast distribution footprint, we couldn’t dream of a better partner to help CoreMax48 expand, not only in golf, but also into other sports industries that have the same needs.”
