BUFFALO GROVE, Ill. – International distributors joined PROFILE Products to engage in educational outreach, hands-on product demonstrations and tours of its manufacturing plant and distribution center during the first Profile International Distributor Meeting, held in Hickory, N.C., April 18 – 21, 2010.

Representatives from countries around the world attended the meeting, primarily focused on the value of engineering and agronomic considerations to ensure cost-effective erosion control and vegetative establishment practices.

Attendees received educational information for Profile’s products and technologies. Areas of focus included:

•Hands-on demonstrations of advanced hydraulic matrices, turf reinforcement mats and prescriptive agronomic formulations

•Green Design Engineering, which provides natural, sustainable solutions for an expanding range of sites, including slopes, channels, shorelines, water management projects, waste containment sites, fine turf areas and environmentally sensitive sites

•Soil solutions and vegetative establishment practices for the golf course construction and maintenance markets

•Information about Turface Athletics’ soil conditioner products for sports fields and turf applications

“We were able to cover a lot of ground as a group in just a couple of days,” says Brand Manager Jeff Langner. “Bringing the international representatives together allowed them to share best practices and learn about all aspects of Profile’s products, capabilities and agronomic expertise in one sitting."
