The Toro Company announced that it acquired TURFLYNX, a privately held developer of autonomous mowing equipment for golf courses. The new Toro employees will continue to be based in Portugal.  Terms of the transaction were not disclosed.

TURFLYNX is recognized for introducing the industry’s first fully autonomous, all-electric fairway mower in 2016.  “As the golf industry continues to focus on improving play, better managing resources and expanding its commitment to environmental sustainability, the application and advancement of technologies will play a critical role,” said Grant Young, general manager for Toro’s Commercial Business. “This acquisition is expected to help expand our GeoLink Solutions portfolio displayed at last year’s Golf Industry Show.”
