Hydraulic Mulch Landfill Cover

Hydraulic Mulch Landfill Cover
The market for hydraulic application of mulches and vegetation-establishing covers has grown substantially. Strong erosion control and grass and plant growth on projects has improved waste management, transportation, and many other projects.

Profile Products LLC is continuing its growth. The company has announced the acquisition of Central Fiber LLC’s erosion control and landfill cover businesses. The deal includes Central Fiber’s Canton, Ohio production and distribution facility, as well as the affiliated employees and sales team at that location.
Key pieces of the transaction are the Second Nature® and Enviro Fiber® hydraulic mulches, which will now be sold alongside Profile’s hydroseeding solutions, which include Flexterra HP®, ProMatrix® and Base mulch in the erosion control field.
Profile has also been active in landfill daily cover applications. With the Central Fiber deal, Profile will add Topcoat® and Waste-Coat® landfill cover products to its landfill cover portfolio. Both of these new additions are non-toxic and biodegradable, which meets the high-bar for daily cover requirements.
“Central Fiber has established a strong market presence with products, people and technology that fit well with our product portfolio and our corporate culture,” said Profile Product’s John Schoch in a release. Schoch is the company’s President and CEO.
“By combining our respective products and personnel, this acquisition advances our mission of delivering a full range of technologies and services to assist customers with their turf establishment and erosion control requirements.”
Other markets served by Profile include vegetation establishment, landscaping, sports field conditioning, and golf course construction and maintenance.
In addition to the new Midwestern production facility and sales force joining Profile, the company will also get a new warehouse in Dallas to support growth in the Southwestern United States.
The release reported that the transaction closed on October 20 without disclosure of financial details.
