Terra Novo Partners With Leading U.S. Erosion-Control Distributor, JMD Company

New JMD Company Distribution Partnership Expands Terra Novo's Eastern U.S. Market Reach

BAKERSFIELD, CA--(Marketwired - Mar 26, 2015) - Terra Novo -- a leading manufacturer of erosion- and sediment-control, remediation and reclamation products -- today announced its new distributor, Pennsylvania-based JMD Company, one of the largest privately owned geosynthetic and erosion control product providers in the country.

Terra Novo's complete EarthGuard product line provides highly effective, environmentally friendly erosion control, reclamation and revegetation solutions at dramatically lower materials and application costs, when compared to traditional erosion-control products. Developed using a hands-on approach by Terra Novo's engineers and chemists, EarthGuard is a hydraulically applied erosion control (HECP) product that is especially effective for vegetation establishment and remediation as well as erosion and sediment control. JMD Company will offer the EarthGuard family of products, including EarthGuard Liquid, which comes in a five-gallon container and is added to standard hydromulch prior to installation, offering contractors flexibility to adjust application rates. Additionally, JMD Company will carry EarthGuard Fiber Matrix, a pre-packaged one-step solution that combines EarthGuard and wood/cellulose fiber; and EarthGuard EDGE™, a pellet form of EarthGuard Fiber Matrix, ideal for remote areas with limited water and smaller jobs where hydromulching is cost-prohibitive. Terra Novo products will be carried in JMD's seven locations spanning Pennsylvania, Ohio and West Virginia. 

"JMD Company is an ideal distribution partner that will help expand our presence in the eastern U.S.," says Scott Harrison, founder and president of Terra Novo. "The results offered by EarthGuard combined with the expertise of JMD Company will provide customers both exceptional service and essential environmental protection and remediation for projects in the area."

JMD Company stocks a complete line of temporary and permanent erosion-control solutions and hydraulic mulching products, making the addition of the EarthGuard products a seamless fit to its portfolio of product offerings. JMD Company's team works with clients to balance performance and cost in choosing the optimal product for each project, such as civil site improvements, surface water quality, midstream pipeline, well pad construction and others.

"Our target customers are looking for products like EarthGuard," says Mark Forse, president, JMD Company. "The brand helps us fulfill our commitment to providing our customers cost effective solutions with top performance. We are happy to bring EarthGuard products into our markets."
