PBI-Gordon Companies serves the turf and ornamental and animal health industries, with a heavy presence in the golf world. Since its founding in 1947, the mission of PBI-Gordon has been to create and deliver healthy solutions through dependable products, thoughtful innovations, and impeccable service.
PBI-Gordon was one of the first companies to recognize the need for turf solutions designed specifically for golf course superintendents. Today the company is a national leader in the professional turf and ornamental management industry.
With a full line of herbicides, insecticides, fungicides, growth regulators, and other products, PBI-Gordon Corporation is a national leader in the professional turf and ornamental management industry. PBI-Gordon was one of the first companies to recognize the need for turf solutions designed specifically for golf course superintendents.
In 1968, the company became the licensee to combine active ingredients 2,4-D, MCPP, and Dicamba. It marketed exclusive rights to a patented formula called Fairway Herbicide, selling the first gallon ever to Southern Hills Country Club in Tulsa, Oklahoma. Fairway would evolve into one of today’s most popular products for fighting weeds: Trimec®.
Building off the initial success of Trimec, PBI-Gordon was able to set in motion a process of development that led to a number of industry-leading solutions for the turf grass industry. Notable innovations include SpeedZone®, Vexis®, and Surge® herbicides, and Pedigree, Kabuto®, and Tekken® fungicides.
Today, PBI-Gordon continues to thrive as a 100 percent employee-owned company, strengthening its leadership position in the industry by providing focused, reliable solutions and expertise to help professionals keep their turf healthy and strong.
PBI-Gordon is dedicated to engaging its industry partners and end-users to best provide innovative and market-focused herbicide, fungicide, and insecticide solutions.
One of the company’s strengths has been innovation through customer intimacy. By knowing its customers and understanding their challenges, PBI-Gordon is better able to develop the innovative and reliable products that help golf course superintendents meet their goals.
