Continuing its commitment as a leader of product innovation and testing in the erosion and vegetative solutions industry, Profile Products LLC has moved into a new research laboratory at its manufacturing plant in Conover, N.C.

The 2,200-square-foot laboratory, which opened this summer, allows for the six full-time employees to fully inspect all raw materials and finished products due to the larger space and more sophisticated equipment. The new lab equipment further supports Profile’s objective to help standardize the industry’s product testing practices via ASTM testing standards.

Notably, the lab now has a stereo microscope and a compound microscope enabling the staff to take high-resolution images of material being used in various products.

Numerous other pieces of equipment have been updated or added to this state-of-the-art laboratory, which will benefit Profile’s research efforts. In addition, the new laboratory will be used for customer and employee training.
