The new facility will produce wood-based erosion control technologies and horticulture substrates. The first phase of development is planned to be operational in October 2022 with additional work to occur over the following 36 months.
“Georgia offers a great workforce that embraces an aspiration to improve our environment,” Profile Products CEO, Jim Tanner added. “The Jasper County facility marks an incredible step forward in our long-term growth strategy. The world is asking for sustainable technologies. We’re building them. We’re building them right here in Jasper County.”
