Nashville, GA., July 13, 2022, 11:00 AM·2 min read — Willacoochee Industrial Fabrics, Inc. (WINFAB), a US based leader in the manufacturing of geosynthetic and erosion control products, announced the construction of a new manufacturing facility focused on erosion control solutions. The new facility will serve to expand and diversify the company’s capabilities in manufacturing erosion control products. The first phase of the expansion will be located in Nashville, GA alongside the already expansive geotextile manufacturing facility.
The new facility will primarily produce temporary erosion control blankets, wattles and compost filter socks that will help meet the high demand for erosion control solutions. The facility is located on an 18- acre parcel of land that will allow expansion of the initial 37,500 square foot facility.
“With the construction of this new facility, we will help reduce supply chain complexity and risk as we add to our company’s product portfolio making WINFAB a one-stop shop for quality manufactured construction goods needed to support IIJA funded projects over the next several years.” said Larry Booth, President of WINFAB.
Construction is currently underway and high-volume manufacturing (HVM) capability will be completed by January 2023.
“The new facility demonstrates WINFAB’s commitment to the industry and aligns with the company’s commitment to our customers for continued growth and continual improvement in the products and services which we offer.” says Eric Booth, Vice President of WINFAB. “Developing an erosion control centric production facility will also help to facilitate company goals we have established for ourselves to locally source raw materials, reduce the imbedded carbon footprint of infrastructure projects we serve, all the while minimizing waste sent to landfills which is becoming more important to industries and our communities every day.”
