Profile Products Expands Product Line with HydroStraw Acquisition

Buffalo Grove, Illinois, United States: Profile Products LLC, a provider of environmentally friendly soil, water and vegetation management solutions, has announced the acquisition of the erosion control and seed businesses of HydroStraw, LLC.

The transaction includes all HydroStraw erosion control and seed product lines, as well as the company’s Rockford, Washington, production plant/distribution centre and employees. The acquisition will strengthen Profile’s ability to meet a wide variety of customers’ product and service needs. 

In addition, Profile gains new manufacturing and distribution capabilities in a strategically important market with the acquisition of HydroStraw’s facility in Washington.

“The strategic operational location will support Profile’s ability in the western United States to further develop fibre manufacturing and rolled erosion control product technologies while increasing production capabilities as we continue to expand our business,” said Jim Tanner, President and CEO of Profile Products, a Full Business Member of the Asian Golf Industry Federation.

The acquisition augments Profile’s industry-leading erosion control technologies with HydroStraw’s hydraulic mulches, equipment and seed businesses, complementing Profile’s broad range of products including Flexterra High Performance-Flexible Growth Medium (HP-FGM), ProGanics Biotic Soil Media (BSM) and base mulch hydroseeding solutions.

HydroStraw’s products also align with Profile’s environmentally friendly approach to erosion control by offering non-toxic and bio-degradable solutions.
