Life at GrassWorx
There’s something special about being a part of the local community. We are proudly a St. Louis based, employee-owned private company. We branched out on our own in 2009 after the purchase of the assets of the North American Plastic Products business from Solutia, Inc.
The original leadership team remains in place and many more on our team have been with us for over a decade. GrassWorx, LLC. is the proprietary manufacturer of a wide range of plastic products including the famous AstroTurf® branded products.
We are proud to provide fulfilling careers
What you are you looking for?
Are you looking for more than just a paycheck, but a place that you can learn and will support you along the way? Are you looking to enhance your skills and then apply new knowledge with your skills to achieve even more? Maybe you are looking for a team to be a part of—a place where you can grow your leadership skills by learning from people like you who have themselves become leaders under this very roof?
At GrassWorx we are proud to be St. Louis-built. We are incredibly proud of the work we do and nothing makes us prouder than to see one of our own earn the ability to retire from GrassWorx.
From the office personnel to the crew that manufactures all of this fake grass, we are all here to learn, grow, and to have a place where we can leave our mark. We invest in each of our colleagues and we want teammates who are invested in GrassWorx.

Process Engineers at GrassWorx are responsible for implementing projects in the plant that drive continuous improvement in cost, quality, and safety as well as assisting the operators when there are production issues. Quality and doing things the right way are important to them. They have to be organized, curious, and able to communicate at all levels of the organization. Their innovative thinking is important when we are developing new products, which we like to do around here…A LOT!
If you like fixing broken machinery, then a career at GrassWorx as a Maintenance Tech is right up your alley. Maintenance Techs at GrassWorx like to get their hands greasy and make things work. A lot of our equipment was built back when things were built to last and we like to keep those “classic” machines purring like the day they were new. Maintenance Techs help us do that through their strong mechanical aptitude, attention to detail, and trouble shooting skills.
First Line Supervisors
First Line Supervisors at GrassWorx, sometimes called Shift Leads, are the Sergeants of our manufacturing teams. Most of them started as packers and have worked their way up through the ranks. A strong passion for leading people to accomplish the mission is what sets these folks apart. They are never afraid to adapt and try something new. By listening and gaining the respect of their team members, they make sure our products are produced safely to the right quality, on time, and at the right cost.
Plastic Extrusion and Finishing Operators
At GrassWorx, our Extrusion and Finishing Line Operators are the glue that holds everything together. 24 hrs a day, they are on the front lines, running our production and packaging lines—day and night. Operators at GrassWorx excel at following complex written instructions. They are able to manage multiple tasks at one time and remain focused in a fast paced environment—working together as a team. Our Extrusion Operators are taught how to run our Continuous Injection Molding lines. Because this process is proprietary to GrassWorx, this makes them the only people in North America with these skills and know how! Talk about being in a class of their own.
Warehouse & Shipping
Getting orders safely out the door, correct, and on-time is what drives our Warehouse and Shipping folks. This is where the rubber or should we say the “grass meets the road”. From our St. Louis facilities, we ship our St. Louis Made products to our customers spread out all over Canada, the US, Mexico, and Latin America. To do this effectively, our Warehouse & Shipping personnel have to learn and keep track of hundreds of SKUs and customer’s special requirements. They love the autonomy that comes with filling the daily orders and loading the trucks as they arrive. Being a self starter, having a strong work ethic, and an organized approach to their job are some of the keys to their success.
