Additional Improvements at Manufacturing Facility Expand Production Capacity
HOUSTON, TX -- (MARKET WIRE) -- November 14, 2006 -- Organic Growing Systems Inc., a subsidiary of Advanced Growing Systems, Inc. (PINKSHEETS: AGWS), announced today a major step forward toward broad commercialization of its organic fertilizer lines with the introduction to the marketplace of the Company's newly designed plastic bag. Over the past week the latest bagging equipment has been delivered to the factory in Monticello, MS where a separate production line was redesigned to produce its fertilizer in a more rapid fashion, in retail friendly packaging.
"This new image is exactly what we need to bring our product to a broad marketplace," states Chris Nichols, President and CEO of Advanced Growing Systems, Inc. "We have an amazing product that has virtually limitless applications and we have needed to expand our capacity as well as upgrade our packaging in order to capitalize on the growing demand for our products."
Purchased from Southtech of Virginia, Inc., a new bag sealer and conveyor was incorporated into the assembly line to take advantage of a new bagging spout that loads forty pound bags in a matter of seconds. Automated palletizing at the end of the line readies the outgoing product for the trucks that deliver TOP Organic Fertilizer to the marketplace. The first trucks with the new presentation are heading for Houston, TX and Atlanta, GA to fill existing customer orders.
Organic Growing Systems continues to upgrade its production facilities to increase efficiency and capacity. The next planned change will be to set up the hammer mill to begin production of a new line of fine granular product used primarily for topical sod applications. This product will address the needs of golf course and sports field operators who desire a product that will readily enter the soil food web without causing ecological and environmental problems associated with synthetic fertilizers.
Martin Reiner, PhD, President of Organic Growing Systems, Inc., stated, "We are pleased with the new production facility as well as the upgrades that we are announcing. We expect to implement many of these improvements by the end of the year and have measurable results early in the first quarter of 07."
