Profile Products Expanding with New Wood Fiber Plant in Conover, North Carolina
Profile Products announced an expansion of their production facilities with construction of a wood fiber plant in Conover, N.C. The new plant, located next to current operations, will more than double Profile’s capacity and add new fiber processing technologies to their already existing industry-leading capabilities.
The expansion includes a new, two-story complex with offices and an innovative training facility. Upholding their reputation as a leader in developing erosion and vegetative solutions, Profile will also expand their research and development efforts with new greenhouses and research equipment.
The plant will be completed in the fall of 2018.
“We’re excited to complete the plant and begin operations later this year,” said President and CEO Jim Tanner. “This will add more capacity and flexibility to our facilities, allowing us to service our customers at the highest level. We take pride in being an industry leader, and this expansion will help us continue to develop the best products that consistently deliver measurable value to our customers and the industry.”
In addition to the new facility, Profile continues to invest in its other fiber production plants in Limestone, Tenn. and Canton, Ohio, adding more equipment and resources to expand capabilities. All of these investments are part of Profile’s long-term strategic growth plan.
