BUFFALO GROVE , Ill. (September 19, 2013) — Profile Products recently completed the final phase of a year-long upgrade to processing equipment at its Blue Mountain, Miss., manufacturing facility.
This major investment allows the company continued expansion of production capacity and flexibility in its product mix, further enhancing Profile’s leadership position in the sports turf, golf and agriculture markets. The company, which manufactures a comprehensive line of ceramic particles, is widely known for its Turface® brand of sports field conditioners.

Exceeding our customers' expectations remains our primary objective."
The upgrades were completed without any unscheduled downtime at the plant, and were done with a close eye on safety throughout the process. The manufacturing facility recently celebrated one million consecutive safe hours without a lost time accident.
“It has been a long, but smooth process, and I’m proud of the efforts of everyone at our plant,” said Dwight Schipke, director of manufacturing operations at the Blue Mountain site. “We haven’t missed a beat from a production standpoint or, most importantly, in our service to customers. We have already seen tremendous capabilities with our new equipment.”
