EIGCA recruits new partners
15 May 2012
Irrigation specialist Rolf Krueger and bridge supplier InfraCore have become partners of the European Institute of Golf Course Architects.
With 36 years in the industry spanning a wide range of both irrigation techniques and regions and now running his own Germany-based consultancy, Krueger joins the institute as a consultant partner. Previous roles include a three-year stint as European Irrigation Association president, more than 20 years as general manager of Rain Bird Deutschland and time spent as the company’s regional manager covering Eastern Europe, Scandinavia and the UK.
EIGCA president Rainer Preissmann said: “We are always looking at ways to improve communications within the industry and our new consultant partner category gives golf industry experts an ideal platform to swap experiences and build relationships with our members.”
InfraCore, a division of FibreCore, has become a Bronze Industry Partner. InfraCore supplies composite golf bridges designed in Europe and constructed using technology developed in the Netherlands. The company claims that composite bridges offer considerable advantages over traditional materials, being both stronger than steel and lighter than concrete, easier to install and with reduced maintenance requirements.
InfraCore CEO Bob Buckingham said: “It is wonderful for me, in my new role representing Infracore Golf Bridges, to be back supporting the EIGCA and reacquainting with old friends. I look forward to establishing many new relationships in the future.”
