Turface Athletics, the sports fields business of Profile Products, announced the completion of a new mound clay production line at its Blue Mountain, Miss., facility. The new line will manufacture Turface 5-Star packing clay and MarMound All-Purpose Clay.
“This advanced production line allows us to expand our product offering, increase our productivity and provide quality control and material testing that surpasses any other bagged clay product on the market,” said Joe Betulius, vice president of sports fields for Profile Products.
The mound clay production line is the latest upgrade to the Blue Mountain plant. In 2013, Profile completed a multi-million dollar expansion of the facility to add more capacity and flexibility to the calcined clay product line. Before the addition of the mound clay line, the products were previously produced at Profile’s Columbia, Tennessee, facility.
Turface Athletics also announced it will now stock more than 150 field accessory products at a distribution center in Olive Branch, Mississippi, less than one hour from Blue Mountain. The newly stocked facility allows distributors to place one order that combines catalog accessories with Turface or Southern Athletic Field conditioners and clays. Accessory items will still be available to ship directly to customers as well.
“We wanted to make it easy for distributors to order all of the high-quality products they need,” said Betulius. “We’re excited for distributors to take advantage of these exciting upgrades and continue to build and maintain the ultimate sports fields.”
