Recycled mulch firm expands facility
International Mulch, a firm that makes rubber mulch sold at Ace, True Value and Menards, has outgrown its 57,000-square-foot building and is moving to larger quarters, according to press reports. The St. Louis-based manufacturer, which makes its landscaping products from 100 percent recycled truck tires, has signed an agreement to purchase a 300,000-square-foot former machine shop in Godfrey, Ill., according to an article in The Telegraph.
The deal is expected to close by the end of July, with production beginning in August.
International Mulch also makes recycled rubber tree rings, edge border and playground mats.
