BUFFALO GROVE, Ill. Profile® Products celebrated the work of several outstanding distributors at its annual awards banquet on February 24 during the International Erosion Control Association Conference in Raleigh, North Carolina.

“Through their hard work, our distributors make the world a better and more beautiful place,” said Wally Butman, vice president of sales for Profile Products. “They are making a tremendous impact on communities all around the world by working to find solutions for difficult erosion control sites. Every year, we see new and creative thinking that energizes the industry.”

This year’s “Project of the Year” award winner is Construction EcoServices for their work on a Hurricane Harvey restoration project in Houston, Texas. After more than 12 feet of water flooded the Buffalo Bayou near Houston’s premier performing arts center, Construction EcoServices employed Profile’s GreenArmor™ System to reinforce and revegetate the banks of the Bayou. A few months after application, Tropical Storm Imelda once again flooded the site and tested the solution. When the water receded, the slopes were still intact, and the green solution won.

The “Project of the Year” award winner is selected based on the size and scope of the project, the quantity and variety of Engineered Specified Products (ESPs) used, the effort required to write the specifications and the amount and severity of obstacles to overcome.

Additionally, this year’s “Green Project Award” winners — given to the distributor, engineer and contractor who sustain excellence and growth over a period of years, while promoting all of Profile’s product categories — are the California Department of Transportation (CalTrans) District 8, Stover Seed and Pacific Restoration Group (PRG) for their work on the North Coast Corridor Project in San Diego, California. PRG applied Profile’s ProGanics® Biotic Soil Media™ and Flexterra® High Performance-Flexible Growth Medium® on a 25-mile stretch of Interstate 5 as part of an infrastructure improvement project that includes road, rail, bicycle and environmental restoration.
