Production of Erosion Control Blankets Commence at Willacoochee Industrial Fabrics, Inc. (WINFAB)

Nashville, GA., February 2, 2023 /1 min read — WINFAB manufacturing is full speed ahead at the beginning of 2023, including the production of erosion control blankets at the newly constructed facility in Nashville, GA. Located on an 18-acre parcel of land recently developed and incorporated into the WINFAB “campus”, the erosion control production facility was the first of two capital expansion projects announced by WINFAB during the second half of 2022. (The second capital expansion project underway includes the installation of a nonwoven needlepunch production line in Nashville, GA.)

As previously communicated in July 2022, the anticipated start-up of production for the erosion control facility would be on or around January 2023, and we are happy to announce that we have achieved our goal. Due to high demand, production of double-sided straw blankets and straw wattles will be the main focus over the next several weeks. Towards the start of the construction season, WINFAB plans to ramp up production of other erosion control products.

“We recognize nationwide that there is a raised awareness and desire for domestically sourced construction materials. Being a US based producer of an extensive line of erosion control and geotextile products, WINFAB remains focused on our customers’ needs, and is preparing in many ways at the start of 2023 to meet existing and new demand for high quality, domestically manufactured materials. The plan is simple: collaborate with customers to leverage WINFAB’s diversity in manufacturing, while helping their businesses reach their fullest potential.” Said Eric Booth, Vice President of WINFAB.

Future updates will be forthcoming on the progress of our capital expansion projects. Please contact WINFAB if you would like to learn more about other geosynthetic and erosion control products manufactured in the heart of Georgia, USA.
