American Athletic Company History
Bill Narozanick, our founder, began working for his father’s company, Brunswick Bituminous/Dayton Construction in 1968. While his father’s company and affiliate companies specialized in high volume asphalt pavement construction, they also constructed outdoor athletic facilities such as tennis courts, running tracks, etc. Bill participated in all aspects of the services offered, accumulating a wide range of experience and knowledge before departing in early 1982.
In the early 70’s, Bill was a member of the top ten rated Florida State University Track and Field Team and in 1974 observed the complete construction of the team’s brand new “State of the Art” running track complex. In the spring of that year, the inaugural event was held under the lights against the 2nd ranked South Carolina University Gamecocks, where the #7 Seminoles put on a rout worthy of the Grand Opening!
Bill would never forget the excitement and joy of participating in that event and he quickly decided that after graduation, the construction of high quality outdoor sports facilities would play a major role in his future plans! After graduation and in the winter of 1982 Bill left his father’s company and began his own company with the sole purpose of constructing premier outdoor sports facilities. In 1983, Bill incorporated American Athletic Courts, Inc. (AACI) which is the parent company to American Athletic Track and Turf, Florida Track and Turf and the other affiliated companies and names utilized by AACI.
Today, AACI is one of the only, if not the only totally “vertically integrated” polyurethane running track construction companies on the East Coast, USA, where they also proudly specialize in constructing premium artificial turf field complexes and other high end sports facilities. At the present time AACI is the proud recipient of 12 National Awards for “Sports Construction Excellence as awarded by the American Sports Builder’s Association”.
Most of AACI’s work is performed in the mid-Atlantic, Southern New England and Florida regions where AACI is a leader concerning advanced construction techniques, sophisticated use of simple geometry, conical design and laser technology to consistently achieve the highest levels of quality within the sports construction industry.
AACI regularly works with Beynon Sports Surfaces, where AACI was their first “Authorized Installer” and “Official Partner”, Fieldturf, USA (Official Partner) and a myriad of engineers, architects, project managers and owners who rely on our expertise and dedication to build their own “Field of Dreams” projects. AACI is as forward thinking as ever, and the combination of our experienced and dedicated employees with our incomparable desire to attain the highest levels of performance, longevity and safety achievable, create a level of value unsurpassed in our industry.
