Profile Products opens new manufacturing facility in Georgia

Profile Products, a global agriscience technology manufacturer, celebrated the grand opening of its new manufacturing plant in Monticello, Georgia, on December 14, 2022. 

The investment will expand the company's wood fiber production capacity by 50% while initially creating 80 new local jobs. This comes less than two years after a plant expansion in Conover, North Carolina, which doubled Profile's wood fiber production at that time.

The new Monticello facility will feature technology, improve logistics and enhance safety and quality control systems for Profile's product lines. The location will produce wood-based erosion control technologies as well as Profile's flagship horticulture product, HydraFiber advanced substrate.

"We are excited to open this facility to not only ensure readily available, environmentally friendly products for customers, but to also create jobs and give back to the Jasper County community where we live, work, and play," Profile CEO Jim Tanner said. "This facility investment, coupled with the community's dedicated workforce, is a great step toward achieving our long-term goal of sustainable technologies while meeting our customers' needs." 

The new facility features technology to manufacture sustainable wood fiber technology. 

The ribbon-cutting ceremony also commemorated long-time employee Gary Bowers, who has been instrumental in Profile's operational excellence and multiple plant expansions during his nearly 20-year career with the company, by naming the facility after him. 

The expansion builds on Profile's commitment to environmental stewardship. Through its manufacturing efforts, Profile has already recycled more than 5 billion pounds of wood and paper, and the new wood fiber processing plant will continue to divert those resources from the waste stream and reintroduce them into the environment as sustainable products.
