Profile Products completed its state-of-the-art wood fiber processing plant in Conover, North Carolina as part of a five-phase expansion project that will include more infrastructure for creating new fiber technologies.

In addition to the new plant, the project features state-of-the-art greenhouses that have more than tripled the previous space. These greenhouses will be used to continue Profile’s industry-leading research and development of sustainable products and technologies. The expansion also includes new training and educational facilities that offer more opportunities for customer and employee training. Other projects underway include new facilities for raw materials storage and packaging operations.

“Our customers have shown us they value our environmentally friendly products and this expansion will ensure we meet their growing demands for sustainable products,” said Jim Tanner, president and CEO of Profile Products. “We’re also excited to leverage the new greenhouses to develop the next generation of products for our customers.”

The expansion also builds on Profile’s commitment to environmental stewardship. Through its manufacturing efforts, Profile has already recycled more than 3.5 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. The expansion is also in close proximity to Profile’s raw ingredients, allowing the company to keep trucking to a minimum and reduce its carbon footprint.
