The acquisition of Mulch Manufacturing by SGTM in February 2020 is an impressive coup for the parent firm. Mulch Manufacturing agreed to a distribution agreement with SGTM, which increased the former’s production and packaging capacity. Acquiring the company gave the company access to several unique products that were made through patented processes, he said.
”One of its divisions is now our trucking company, Rose Transportation, and another is Nature’s Reflections, a high-quality mulch colorant product,” CEO Raynor said. “Ingredients are shipped from different countries to Jacksonville where we make it at our 30,000-square-foot manufacturing facility.”
Mulch Manufacturing builds machines to color the mulch instead of buying it from other companies. Called the Cheetah Coloring System, the technology enables Mulch Manufacturing to easily change the color of the product. Raynor said the equipment was named after the nimble African cat because its inventor designed it to efficiently bind chemicals to wood by using less water and colorants.
”Our being able to be innovative is what excites me about being part of this team,” he said. “For instance, when we build a manufacturing facility from the ground up, our experienced team understands what it takes to do it and if there is a piece of equipment that we cannot buy, we just roll up our sleeves and make it, like trommel screens, disks, conveyors, coloring machines — you name it.”
Cypress Sawmill is a division of the Mulch Manufacturing company in Homerville, Georgia, that acquires valuable lumber from loggers, as well as producing top-quality cypress mulch from the trees’ bark. “In the end, there is not one part of the tree that is wasted,” Raynor said of the mill.
