Outstanding Distributors Honored at Profile Products Annual Awards Banquet
Profile Products celebrated the work of several outstanding distributors at its annual awards banquet on February 20 during the International Erosion Control Association Conference in Denver, Colorado.
“We have been presenting these awards for years, and every year I am impressed with the innovative and creative solutions our distributors are able to develop for these projects,” Wally Butman, vice president of sales for Profile Products said. “We are honored to be a part of their success stories.”
This year’s “Project of the Year” award winner is JMD Company for their work on the TransCanada Pipeline. JMD Company worked with contractors WB Xpress and PennLine to stabilize the TransCanada Pipeline through the Monongahela National Forest. The team worked hard to preserve the diverse biological life and protect the environment of this delicate ecosystem. This was all done without any compliance issues. The project utilized a wide range of products including ProGanics® Biotic Soil Media™ to amend the soil and Flexterra® HP-FGM® for superior erosion control.
The “Project of the Year” award winner is selected based on the size and scope of the project, the quantity and variety of Engineered Specified Products (ESP) used, the effort required to write the specifications and the amount and severity of obstacles to overcome.
New this year, Profile® handed out the “Green Project Award” given to the distributor, engineer and contractor who sustain excellence and growth over a period of years, while promoting all of Profile’s product categories. This year’s winners are the California Department of Transportation (CalTrans) District 8, Stover Seed and Pacific Restoration Group for their work on the Freeway Fire project, Interstate 15 and 210 Interchange. After the Freeway Fire destroyed nearly 20 acres of land along the interstate, this team worked together to revegetate the land using Profile’s ProPlus® line including ProGanics, JumpStart™ and BioPrime™. Despite less than two inches of rain, the site had a blanket of vegetation and wildflowers within a few months.
